Testimonials and Stories

  • Margaret Miller - Ravines Resident

    “It is very hard to reach an age where you must give up your home and go into a retirement home but the day comes when you must.  I have now been living in Retirement Homes for eight years; one in the Niagara Region and two in Ottawa.  The Ravines in Ottawa is definitely the best!  The staff are all very friendly and kind and do a splendid job in the dining room.  The other staff are very good also – the girls on the Front Desk and the maintenance staff as well.  Ravines is the only Residence that I know of that has a washer & dyer for each Suite.  There are many fine, friendly people living here.  In the summer months there are splendid places to walk on the grounds along the ravines and in the woods.  In short, you really cannot do much better anywhere!”

  • Dora Graham - Ravines Resident

    “It has been a wonderful experience here at the Ravines.  I’m very content & happy.  The staff have been wonderful.  I have made new friends here and enjoy the social activities.”

  • Jean Fong - Ravines Resident

    “My experience here has been terrific. I lucked into this place.  I like my dwellings and I’m comfortable.  I would recommend it any day.  From my point of view, the Staff are the best I have seen in a very long time; they’re conscientious and they know exactly what you want, you don’t have to repeat.  I’ve been here for almost 3 years and I love the surroundings here along the Ravines."

  • Marion Marks - Ravines Resident

    “I’ve been here almost two years now and I’ve been very pleased as I felt the Ravines have taken in a lot of requests and listen to us.  I’ve been getting good care.  They have so many activities that we can take part of and it’s very interesting.  You’re never bored here.  I do feel the meals are very, very good.  All the Staff are very good,  as we’ve relied on them and they’ve proved to be what we expected.  I really appreciate being here.”
