Are­tire­ment home in Gananoque is show­cas­ing its award­win­ning pro­grams and ser­vices at an open house this fall.

Carveth Re­tire­ment Lodge, an ac­cred­ited re­tire­ment home in the Thou­sand Is­lands, is open­ing its doors to the pub­lic on Sept. 24 from 1 to 4 pm.

The open house is part of a province-wide ini­tia­tive by the On­tario Re­tire­ment Com­mu­ni­ties As­so­ci­a­tion (ORCA) to show­case ser­vices for peo­ple look­ing for as­sisted liv­ing. The open house will also in­tro­duce res­i­dents and ded­i­cated & dy­namic staff.

Fea­tur­ing the taste, sound and beauty of Canada, the Carveth Re­tire­ment Lodge Fall OpenHouse will fea­ture warm ap­ple cider, fresh cin­na­mon buns and en­ter­tain­ment by lo­cal mu­si­cians. Ad­mis­sion is free and open to ev­ery­one.

“This open house is a great op­por­tu­nity to show­case the out­stand­ing lifestyle peo­ple can en­joy in re­tire­ment,” says Brett Gibson, Ad­min­is­tra­tor. “From de­li­cious food to clean rooms, com­fort­able sur­round­ings and com­pas­sion­ate health care, our re­tire­ment lodge helps peo­ple live well, en­joy life and stay ac­tive.”

Man­agers and team mem­bers will be on-hand to guide vis­i­tors through the lay­out to fully ap­pre­ci­ate the liv­ing space such as the din­ing room, com­mon ar­eas, ac­tiv­ity rooms, liv­ing quar­ters and more.

Guests will also have the op­por­tu­nity to meet res­i­dents such as Bruce and Inez Leakey who have lived at Carveth Re­tire­ment Lodge for more than three years.

Mar­ried for 64 years, the duo spends their days read­ing and work­ing on puz­zles. Smil­ing on a warm sum­mer af­ter­noon, they ad­mit they love their full and ac­tive life at Carveth Re­tire­ment Lodge.

“What­makes the place the best is the great staff,” says Bruce, 82.“There is a lot of good peo­ple work­ing here.”

Sit­ting in match­ing re­clin­ing chairs as birds chirp out­side their open pa­tio door, the cou­ple looks happy and re­laxed.

“We still have our car,” says Inez warmly. “We can mo­tor-up the street when­ever we want.

“We’re quite cozy here,” she adds softly. “We would rec­om­mend this place to any­one. We have ev­ery­thing we need.”

“This open house is a per­fect time to drop-in and dis­cover an en­vi­ron­ment that meets your cur­rent re­quire­ments as well as your fu­ture needs ,” says the Ad­min­is­tra­tor “We want thecom­mu­nity to see­what makes Carveth Re­tire­ment Lodge spe­cial. Come home to Car vet hand let our fam­ily care for your fam­ily.”
