Vicky, senior

Chris Swain, family member

"This place is totally AWESOME !!! My Father just moved in last Thursday and he loves it here. I'm very impressed as well. I had lunch ( in a Private dining room that reminded me of my Grandmother's dining room for special occasions, filled with antique China Cabinets with old china dishes ) and the food was great ( I couldn't even eat all of my main entree ). The Studio Unit he has is just the right size ( and he has alot of stuff ) and the whole place seems more like a resort than an institutio..."

Testimonials and Stories

  • Feels like coming home

    Before calling Richmond Woods my home, I lived in Kingston, Ontario. Following the passing of my husband, my son and daughter in law wanted me to live closer to them in London. They did most of the research and thought that Richmond Woods was the nicest of the retirement residences that they toured; I was pleased to be closer to my family.

    I would definitely recommend Richmond Woods to friends. I love the location, situated with some surrounding forest, and I really like the staff members. My advice to those searching for a new home is to weigh the things most important to you. For example, when I first moved in I Iived in a spacious suite upstairs, but I decided I’d prefer ground level with easier access to the outdoors because I love to go on walks and spend lots of time on my patio.  And bring along the sentimental things and let everything else go.  I have a desk that I purchased at an auction with my husband. I secretly bid on it and he did not find out the highest bidder until it was delivered at our home!

    One of my favourite parts about living here is the bus trips that take place through the recreation group. I love being able to get out and the arrival back at Richmond Woods always makes me feel like I’m coming home.
