A caring environment with all the comforts of home
Family owned and operated, RHRA Regulated
We believe in a new and different style of independent senior living. Wiarton Retirement Residence is not an institution, in our look, our feel and in our policies we reflect a progressive, family-centred philosophy on senior care. Our renovated family home is an alternative setting to other, more “traditional,” (or even hospital-like) care home models. We respect the independent senior and the lifestyle you seek. Wiarton Retirement Residence offers an affordable retirement living alternative to “big box” corporate assisted senior care providers and we are NOT a long-term care home.
Our seniors enjoy nutritious home cooked meals that include breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. We strive to ensure our residence is an ideal mix of independence, peace of mind and comfort. We offer the ultimate level of independence, stimulating activities, interactions and services that will provide the first-class quality of life for every resident at our residence.
Our Epiphany Story – Why We Do What We Do!
Growing up my family was kind and loving and our home was always filled with love and laughter. Stories shared at these multi-generational celebrations of special occasions were a joy to hear, full of intriguing and interesting tales from my grandmother’s younger days that have provided some of my fondest memories and which still bring a huge smile to my face. I found my life so much richer after every interaction with her and felt like the older generation always had the best stories to share and provided some of the best education!
It was at one of these recent joyful gatherings that I had a realization. Where would I be without these loved ones in my life who provided so much care and knowledge? I looked over at my own mother sitting across from me as she shared one of these precious life experiences, followed by her very familiar contagious laugh and I thought about her future. Where would she live that would still provide that much needed supportive connection? Where would we find the kind of warm, family focussed community I wanted for my mother to enjoy during her golden years. Institutional settings just seemed well…institutional, and private large care home providers often came with astronomical costs way outside my mother’s fixed income budget. I needed my mother to be in a cheerful, close knit, caring family community that was full of laughter with friends, where all celebrations were a big deal and where seniors could experience joy in the “everyday.”
Our core vision is to provide that kind of home. A comfortable residence that offers supportive senior living for today’s modern senior. A home where people gather to share stories, share laughter, share in celebrations and share the joy of living. You’ll find it here.
Nestled within the greater community of the Town of South Bruce Peninsula, our home is located in a beautiful, all-season community that caters to boomers and where over 35% of the population lists their age as 65+. You’ll find friends here. You’ll find a “family” here. It’s the only place you’ll ever need to call home!
