“I am happy to call Richview my home. I like that I can be close to my family and not have to worry about meals or housekeeping. The most important aspect of Richview, for me, is the fact that I can make a little community within in the residence and that I have the opportunity to socialize with people – something that I thought was lacking in my condo. It is really great that Richview provides me with so many great programs, like the bridge club, as well as with such a diverse array of services. I am happy to be able to provide Catholic Mass to the residents, but more than this, I am glad that Richview provides services for all the faiths. It is wonderful that I can live in a place that is so welcoming and respecting of all the different faiths and opinions. I still work, despite being in ‘retirement living’ and I want to stress that it is possible for you to stay independent and active even during retirement.”
