Where Retirement Living Blossoms

Welcome to Orchard View by the Mississippi

Orchard View by the Mississippi is the newest community by Orchard View Retirement Living. Tucked into Almonte’s friendly neighbourhoods, close to local amenities and community services, and within sight of the Mississippi River, you will find this little piece of paradise a place where retirement living blossoms.

Our Families Say ...

Resident ~ Gail Robinson

After losing my husband in January 2021, plus living alone for 7 years with limited visits to my husband due to covid restrictions at Fairview Manor, the lonliness and depression really took their toll on my health. I sold my house and with the help of Julie Munro and staff I moved into Orchard View. Having done that, I have not looked back. Everyone has been so helpful and kind and patient with me. I have made friends and am able to laugh again. My one problem is that the amount of food they feed me here may cause weight gain.

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.

Resident ~ John & Bonnie Wickenden

The Festive Season is an opportunity to reflect on our first year at Orchard View. Since arriving in September of ’22, the welcoming process has never ceased.  The kindness and caring that began before we arrived carried on through moving in, getting settled, and prevails to this day. It’s like the warm  glow of a Yule log throughout the year. This is our home and neighbourhood now.  We have made new friends and participate in the endless activities designed for everyone. The cuisine is outstanding reflecting careful planning and execution.  The servers provide lots of smiles while caring for us. The staff throughout get the little and sometimes not so little things looked after. We have a wonderful laundry service. Cleanliness of the building in general and our individual homes is nicely maintained.  We indeed thank the organization and management which provide with such excellence for our comfort and security.

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.

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!

..."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."

Kirk R – Resident

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

Resident ~ Don McLeod

In 2003 I was diagnosed with Huntington's disease. I started on my search for what I had in my power to delay the early onset of HD. I needed to get up each day with purpose. I walk, I talk, I engage, I eat balanced meals, I look to make others lives better as well as my own. Since I moved into OVM, the purpose-built, enriching environment has helped me maintain these practices and held HD off in order to focus on more important things in my life. Thank you Orchard View.

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.

Resident ~ Helga Henning

A place to call home among friends and dedicated staff. They have worked tirelessly in keep-ing us safe and happy during this covid time. They create special events for us to enjoy and keep up the morale. Our Mother’s Day was so special and it warmed out hearts.

Why our Staff are so great!

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

When you walk into Orchard View for the first time, you are taken aback by the beauty and tranquility of the pond and music playing in the background. The open atrium and natural light bring you energy and a feeling of room to live. When you look down over the walls, you are mesmerized by the movement of the koi. It's a wonderful cross between a 5 star resort and a comfortable happy home. I look forward to visiting my Dad when he comes to live here.

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.

I could write a lot about how pleased we are with the whole Orchard View experience. You and your team have been amazing. Moving was not easy and dealing with pandemic also does not help. My parents are so happy and call Orchard View home.

My parents recently moved into Orchard View by the Mississippi and they are beyond amazed thus far! The care they receive (the staff are amazing) the planned activities and great tasting meals have all made the moving transition much easier! Orchard View also excels with family communication, always keeping us up to date. We are very glad we chose Or-chard View by the Mississippi and highly recommend it to anyone looking into Retirement Living!
