One of the best things about Richview is that all day there is huge variety of activities and events available to us that, really, there is no excuse not to do something. Even if we don’t participate in everything, we like the options that the Richview have available to us, especially since we both have such different tastes; I (says Ruth) prefer to go to activities such as bridge club, bingo and go out on group outings while my husband (Don) really likes that Richview has large in-house libraries with great books, and on top of this, they also bring in public library books available to everyone for sign out on a weekly basis.
The staff members are great and they will always, regardless of their department, go out of their way to help you out if you need it. We also love that they are considerate of people’s differing needs; I am a diabetic and I really like that they give me desserts that are nice but won’t aggravate my condition, like mixed berries and fruits.
Above all else, we like that we can still be independent but still enjoy the reassurance of knowing that health staff can help us if we do need it, and we have needed it before in the past. We still have a car and come and go when we want, but we really do feel quite at home in our lovely suite.
