How we see Ravines Seniors' Suites & Retirement Residence
We could highlight many exceptional things about this community, but memory care at the Ravines' is offered by experts highly specialized in this sphere. The interior design focuses on neighbourhoods, where dementia patients live in familiar surroundings that avoid the confusion created by more clinical environments. The Ravines' Healthy Minds Program is multi-faceted, focused on providing compassionate, well-rounded care for seniors with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Included in the program are support groups for family and other loved ones, music therapy that stimulates memory and positive interaction, staff trained in the Gentle Persuasive Approach, therapy through multi-sensory environments, and other components.
Ravines Senior Suites offers bright, beautiful surroundings in one of the most desirable locations in Ottawa. Situated close to both the Rideau River greenspace and the heart of downtown Ottawa, this is a perfect choice for the discerning Ottawa Region senior. Spacious, elegantly-appointed suites open onto pleasant views of the local greenery are just one of the notable features of this senior care option.
Alavida Lifestyles focuses on creating a unique, exceptional senior care experience and bringing that experience to select neighbourhoods in the Ottawa area. When you investigate this location, you will find that there is a vision behind things. Care staff and services staff are all focused on delivering an excellent client experience that meets the needs of the whole person. Residents in this community will tell you that everyone here is made to feel special, and for many people who have never experienced such care and attention, the Ravines can be an amazing discovery.

What residents and their loved ones say about Ravines Seniors' Suites & Retirement Residence in reviews.
“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!”
“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.”
“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."
“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.”
