Prior to moving into Richview Manor I thought that, as long as I was standing upright, I would never even think about moving into a retirement residence. After some lonely winters where I was sick of being alone, I decided to take a look without really expecting much. I had looked at a few homes before that all had the same drab and tired look, but when I stepped into Richview I was awestruck by how clean it was and how amazing the view was! At most other retirement homes, you look out your window and you see cars, people and walls, but here you get the most beautiful view of God’s marvelous, changing world; the blue sky to the slight pink of the skyline to the most amazing backyard forest.
More than this, they have excellent staff, that are always friendly and courteous and that have really treated me like a queen. Especially during meal times, I am very impressed with the staff that will come and mingle with us and make sure that we are doing ok. Even the managers, who must be very busy, come around and make sure we’re fine. The food itself is quite excellent and they have a huge variety to pick from and I have nothing but rave reviews.
I love to be out and about doing things so the thing I love most about Richview is that there is always something to do, whether it be clubs or events. Particularly I really enjoy attending aquafit classes, doing arts and crafts at creative expressions and going to the quilting club. Overall, I still feel very independent, being able to walk around and do my own thing, and when I am at home I feel at calm and at ease. I would definitely recommend Richview Manor to anyone who is thinking about going to a retirement home.
