Comfort Life Review

stories

Newmarket and area seniors find a wonderful, fresh new home in the Roxborough. It's thrilling to find a seniors' community of this quality! The building is immaculately kept throughout, from the exterior to the diverse suites you find throughout the community.

Seniors and family members agree that the Roxborough renews people's enjoyment of life. That begins with the refreshment of moving into such a well-kept clean place, where staff are especially gifted at taking a personal interest in each individual. Within the community, there's an opportunity to eat with a variety of other residents and deepen friendships every day. The social life here is varied and scheduled at a relaxed pace throughout the day. Some of the residents' favourite activities include excursions, cocktail hour, the gardening club and religious services in house. It's a revelation to many people how great life in a community of peers can be. Both seniors and their families find astonishment that life can become new again, no matter what stage you find yourself at.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Thank You

    I would like to express a warm and appreciative “Thank you” to all who are employed by The Roxborough. Whoever has assisted directly with my needs or anyone behind the scenes. I realize it’s a team effort. You all come together very efficiently with compassion and empathy towards, not only myself, but from what I have observed, to all of us.
    It was very difficult for me to make the quick and drastic transition from living in my home independently to being in a retirement home setting. I would like to mention that you all have helped in making me feel welcomed. With your warm smiles, kind tone and mild mannered way you have given me direction when I needed it. I realize it’s not an easy task, but all of you do it so well. Please don’t stop.

  • Resident Testimonial

    When my wife Leslie and I decided it was time to move to a retirement residence we visited several in the area. With regards to the accommodations they offered we found very little difference. However as soon as we entered the Roxborough we found a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We moved in a little over a year ago and that first impression has been confirmed over and over causing us to have no regrets about our decision to choose the Roxborough.

General Manager's Message
Jodi Langley

From the moment Jodi walked into The Roxborough in 2012, she felt in her heart that this is where she should be. Since that time, she has been an integral part of its development and success. Her commitment and dedication to residents, their families and staff members have contributed to the warmth and spirit that is felt throughout the home. When Jodi is not with her Roxborough family you will likely find her spending quality time with her husband, two boys and three dogs or running endless miles through the trails across Ontario.
