Carleton Place Seniors Living Units

What if you could move into a place that feels like home? Where you walk into a dining room filled with friends? Where the food is made from scratch? Where you experience new activities each month?

It’s a place where you experience community. Connection. Comfort.

That’s how we want you to experience Retirement living, because that’s what you deserve.

And that’s just what’ll happen when you move to Riverview Seniors’ Residence.

Located in Carleton Place, Riverview Seniors’ Residence is unlike any other independent living facility.

Owned by Drew McDougall and Susan Brandt, Riverview provides a personalized living experience for each person who lives here. With just 25 suites, we call one another by name, we keep an eye out for one another, and there’s often ongoing jokes shared throughout our facility.

With a streetscape overlooking the Mississippi River and gardens lining the exterior, Riverview Seniors’ Residence has the best of both worlds: we’re surrounded by a natural landscape yet located just two blocks from downtown Carleton Place.

Our location makes it easy for our residents who love to stroll through the gardens, sip on tea on the terrace or go for a walk along the river.

Inside, you’ll be greeted with the front foyer leading to the newly renovated dining room. With seating for 30 people, our dining room means you can eat with friends and linger over tea afterwards.

Our 25 suites include studio and one-bedroom options. With large windows overlooking the property, our suites are bright and welcoming.

At Riverview Seniors’ Residence, you’ll access:

  • Suites with private bathrooms
  • Small fridge and microwave in every suite
  • In-suit Call buttons
  • Beautiful, big windows in each suite
  • Ground-floor dining
  • A Self-Serve Mini Library
  • The Bermuda Sun Room
  • The Second-floor lounge
  • Gardens and Vegetable Gardens
  • Outdoor walkways
  • The Wave Hair Salon
  • Elevator Access
  • Full Service laundry: we’ll wash, dry and fold your laundry for you!

The best part?

It’s all inclusive!

Your monthly rental cost is exactly what we say it is. It includes your accommodations, heating, hydro, food, laundry, housekeeping and satellite TV. The only thing you’d need to bring is your phone. We don’t have hidden fees and there are no surprises when it comes to billing.

Fresh, Nutritious and Delicious.

Fresh, nutritious and delicious.

That’s our focus in the kitchen when we’re planning out and preparing your home-cooked meals every day. You’ll be welcomed by our staff in our dining room for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a delicious cup of coffee or tea.

Our menu is carefully selected and during growing season, you’ll find crisp vegetables and fresh herbs served from our garden.

When you come into our sun-filled dining room for your meals, you’ll feel like family. Enjoy a good chat with our staff or sit down with another resident over dessert. The dining room is truly our hub here at Riverview as it’s the central gathering place that brings us together.
