Our Families Say ...

Lynda Levesque -Family Member

Congratulations to you and all the wonderful staff at Orchard View...and a great big thank you for making my Mother feel so welcome. Mom could not be happier...she has blossomed once again...made so many wonderful friends at OV, residents and staff combined.  She has maintained her independence and feels very safe and secure in her private apartment and the resort style living offered in the very beautiful surroundings and amenities offered at Orchard View. She is very proud to call OV her home and we are pleased to see her thriving. Congrats on the first anniversary of Orchard View by the Mississippi; wishing all of you continuing success in the future.

Terri Clarke – Friend

I love to come in and visit my friend and see her involved in activities that she enjoys. She is so much happier, safer and she loves the food. I have brought my granddaughter to visit and she loves visiting with the animals and our friend at the same time.

Margaret B – Resident

I’m so happy to be returning home to Ramsay township to live. My days are filled with fun & lively things to do. I’m surrounded by my friends and we all have healthy & delicious food, a clean place to live and the staff are here to help us with every need. It’s just great. - Margaret Duncan Brunton

Patti Koeslag – Partner

As a celebrant and a visitor to Orchard View by the Mississippi, I am always touched by the friendships witnessed between the people who live there, as well as between the residents and the staff. There is always something to do and the welcome is warm and sincere from the moment you step through the front doors with the beautiful atrium and its pond, fauna and fountain. Everyone I have invited with me on visits has been impressed as well with positive atmosphere and beautiful space - a true community where there are friends, activities, animals and entertainment, spaces for meeting others and lovely apartments and rooms. Congratulations to Orchard View - I have seen many retirement residences and yours has set the bar high for what senior living can look like!

Kirk R – Resident

The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, I couldn't ask for anything better.

Nigel Mortimer – Family

I want to thank the wonderful nursing staff at Orchard View for the fantastic care they have given my mother, Beryl, this winter. Without their care I am sure that Mum would not be as well as she is. While she was ill, the staff instantly got her to the Almonte General Hospital quickly, where she was treated within minutes.

Thanks to all the staff. Mum absolutely adores her home.

Orchard View by the Mississippi Resident

Change is always difficult, but the wonderful, kind-hearted staff have made the adjustment to our new home quite easy. Everyone, from the kitchen staff to the PSWs, housekeeping, the front desk and maintenance, have been so accommodating and personable. When we need help, we just ask and it is done with a smile and such a positive attitude.  We enjoy the music, movies, entertainment and other activities. But, our favorite these days is watching the fish from the second or third floor where you get a good overview of the fabulous pond and the “goings on’ of the day.  Happy Hour on Friday afternoon is an important part of the week.  We meet with other seniors and reminisce about the past and discuss the present. We have such peace of mind that our family knows we are safe and happy in our new home.

Why our Staff are so great!

We take pride in supporting our families, seniors and community.

Jennifer LaRocque – Family Member

..."I used to think no one would be able to look after my mother as well as we could but now I’m not so sure.   It takes a team of dedicated, caring individuals to provide around the clock care and that’s something few families can accommodate regardless of how much they want to and how hard they try.  I believe we’ve found that team at OV."
