Riverside Court is a retirement residence that provides excellent care and support for seniors in a most beautiful setting on the Saint John River. In the summer of 2013, it became evident to my father and our family that a need for more support in his daily life was required. This coupled with his desire to live closer to me in Woodstock made Riverside Court the obvious choice! This facility offered the best solution to his needs. Being a bit reluctant to move so far from Toronto, he came prepared with many questions for the personnel from RSC that first gave us a tour. All of our questions were answered completely and delivered with sensitivity to his situation.
As of today, my father has been living at Riverside Court for almost a year. As would be expected, the transition has taken time, however, we are very pleased with no regrets about his choice. The high quality of staff working at RSC make it the great place that it is. Reception, kitchen, activities, house-keeping, health care and all other staff working in various positions, have welcomed my father and take a genuine interest in his well-being. As a family member, I am always warmly greeted and questions that I might have are respectfully answered.
The vast range of activities that my father can participate in at RSC keeps growing. In addition, there have been activities that he has suggested which have they have willingly incorporated into the schedule. His apartment is spacious and beautiful topped with a panoramic view of the Saint John River which he thoroughly enjoys. The grounds are well maintained with a beautiful fountain and seating area in the rear of the building. This past summer a large garden was planted to provide some fresh vegetables to include in meals. The menu is varied and offers delicious choices.
I would highly recommend Riverside Court as a retirement home without hesitation.
