General Manager's Message
Jasmine Sears

Welcome to the Richmond Care Home Residence Program. Our residence is a unique, secure 16-bed retirement home dedicated to providing compassionate care for women living with a diagnosis of dementia.

Located in the heart of Richmond, Ontario, we are a quiet home-style residence with many amenities focused on the familiarity of their family home life. Richmond Care Home provides a level of care, compassion, and friendship that makes this a place like no other. Our trained staff provide social, emotional and physical support to our residents using the Best Friend Model of Care.

The goal of the residential program is to maintain independence, health and lifestyle to the highest possible level in a safe, comfortable environment.

Richmond Care Home is a barrier-free, residential bungalow architecturally designed and modeled after the world-famous ADARDS Nursing Home in Tasmania, Australia. 

If you have any questions, please contact me. I'm happy to answer them.
