COVID-19 Information

Richmond Hill Retirement Residence during Covid-19
By Disiree Onistchenko, Marketing Manager at Richmond Hill Retirement Residence

What if you could live in a community with activity, friendly people, and even get your hair done all without leaving your home and still stay safe?
At Richmond Hill Retirement Residence there are many benefits to living in our community especially during these challenging times.
Living here means having a support system like no other. At RHRR, we are proud to call each other family. We all look out for one another and during these unprecedented times as a family and community feel this now more than ever.
During these months we have been offering our residents around the clock care in the comfort of their suites, with twice daily check ins from our nursing team. We have been checking our resident’s vitals, mental and physical health, and overall wellbeing during these times.
We have also been providing room service during all meals to each of our residents to ensure the best safety measures and proper social distancing. We have now opened our formal dining room and are now offering fine dining with limited seating. We are slowly easing back into things while still taking all the precautions we can to keep everyone safe. Part of the benefits to living in a community likes ours, is that residents have access to everything on- site and do not have to worry about going out into the community where some might not be practicing best safety measures.
Here at RHRR our residents have access to the hair salon, fitness room, theatre, library, doctor, tuck shop and more. It is with peace and mind that residents know we are keeping appointments well organized and ensuring social distancing in these small gathering settings.
Our life enrichment team have gone over and above to keep our resident’s social life as uplifting as much as possible. With daily one on one visits to our residents, they offer virtual connections between residents and their loved ones, recreational activity booklets and packages to help stay busy.
At RHRR we love to socialize and any excuse for us to party is always good enough for us. We have been continuing to have small groups of residents attend our outdoor entertainment and exercise while keeping a safe distance.
At Richmond Hill Retirement Residence we take pride in knowing that we have been doing everything and more to keep everyone well and safe here.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Right in the heart of the city, Richmond Hill Retirement Residence is a place where local seniors find new levels of happiness. People who move here find an ideal place of both renewal and reinvigoration. Outside, there's shopping, greenspace, nearby entertainment and health care (pharmacies, doctors, physiotherapy and more) – everything you need. And inside, this community focuses on promoting the improved health of community members: not just physical, but mental and spiritual health.

There's so much to do here, and a communal focus on well-being. Unique activities include vendors who come right into the community and a hair salon where you can get pampering as regularly as you like (some ladies take advantage of this service weekly!) Fitness onsite (if that's your thing!) includes daily stretching, and for more fun there are dance classes and a yoga group. Seniors who need assistance can find it here, with the availability of personal support for bathing and other activities of daily living. Care extends to palliation, here, which family members find comforting.
