Comfort Life Review

stories

Harbour Hill offers the finest in seniors' living in Huron County: an exceptionally well-appointed retirement residence that incorporates the highest living standards in a small town setting. The staff and the facilities are the best in terms of professionalism. An onsite feature that clearly demonstrates a commitment to excellence is the Spa and Community Centre; here, there's a therapeutic tub and nail bar, as well as a hair dresser and massage therapist. For the guys, there are games rooms, card games, a movie night and other fun things to do. Fitness and activities are a staple of community life here, and residents love it.

Aside from activity in the residence, you also get to enjoy life in "Canada's prettiest town." Even longtime residents of Huron County may not be aware of the local history, centered in the Huron County Museum. The main beach and Blue Water Beach are just two attractions that make this a place your kids and grandkids will be happy to visit.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Shirley's Story : A Resident of Harbour Hill Enjoys Living Life

    Shirley’s Story

    What is it really like to live in a retirement community?  While in my recent articles, I have concentrated on the when, why, and affordability of a retirement community, this week, the article will be slightly different.  In speaking to older adults residing in retirement communities, it soon became apparent that a resident perspective would be beneficial.  It did not take me long to find someone who was willing to share their experience.  Here is Shirley’s story!

    “Recently I moved to Harbour Hill Retirement Community.  While it meant many changes for me, they were positive ones.  My life has been simplified, without the stress of maintaining a home.  Now I have no concerns about upkeep, grass cutting, snow removal, grocery shopping or lugging in the parcels. 

    I spent a lot of time alone in my home and while I do have my own unit and my privacy , I also have the opportunity to socialize, if I chose to, on a daily basis.  Although my family and friends continue to stop by, I now visit with them, instead of them worrying about what needed to be done and asking them to help.

    I can’t say enough about the caring staff who are always ready to offer help and comfort if I need or want it.  If I have questions or feel ill, staff are immediately available to assist me.  My family no longer worries about me being alone.  The meals are always good and always give me a couple of choices.  Snacks and drinks are available between meals.  I can invite friends and family for a meal and not need to worry about cooking it.  There are activities to take part in, as I wish- Euchre, bridge, Wii bowling, Yoga, entertainment, and happy hour to name a few.   Weather permitting we can enjoy lemonade or ice cream on the patio.  The bus is available to take me shopping, to appointments or on special outings.  No longer do I worry about car maintenance, insurance, driving in inclement weather or asking others to take me where I needed to go. 

    I can sit on my balcony and watch the sunrise or visit with a friend and watch the sunset.  I feel blessed to be living here for this stage of my journey.  Simplifying my life has been the best decision I have made.”

    Often older adults often spend countless hours wondering whether they can continue to live alone, and contemplating what it would be like if they moved.   Taking the first steps is the most difficult decision, but once the made, I have often heard “I wish I would have made the move sooner”. 

    Harbour Hill Retirement Community, is an all-inclusive community. All meals, snacks, beverages, suite laundry, weekly  housekeeping, 24 hour response system, daily activities and private transportation are included in our monthly fee. We offer independent and enhanced care managed by nurses and personal support workers, in a brand new building.

    The Spa and Community Center opened October 2015, and houses a therapeutic tub, hair dresser, nail bar and massage therapist.

    Visit , Live it, Love it.
