My mother has lived at Applewood for 3 years: she loves the staff who treat her as a valuable person not just a client.
My Mother has made friends, both with other residents and staff. She is happy and is where she wants to live. I am satisfied that my Mother is well looked after and that the staff treat her as family.
We toured all of the Peterborough retirement residences when we were looking for a spot for my father. Applewood immediately felt warm and welcoming. We have never regretted the decision. They have provided a home-like atmosphere, with caring staff, and plenty of activities for those so inclined.
Mom has lived at Applewood for 7 years & it has been her home where staff are kind & caring, going beyond their job descriptions to help whoever needs it. All the staff, from top to bottom, have kept their residents safe during the Covid epidemic but also tried to make life interesting & fun in spite of all the extra work they’ve had to do. Applewood is at the top of any list of long term homes anywhere as far as we are concerned!
I would absolutely recommend Applewood Retirement. It was a tough sell to convince my mother to leave her home. My father was still living at the time and required lots of assistance. It took a bit of time to adjust, but my mother is now very happy to be living there.
Our family couldn’t be happier with Applewood Retirement Residence. Our mom was always so opposed to leaving her home but after visiting Applewood she seemed much more on board. She was impressed. Applewood is a very welcoming home and the staff are very caring and compassionate. That might be one of the things my mom talks about the most, how much she loves the staff. She also LOVES the food and loves the new friends she’s made. Applewood was an easy choice after visiting other homes in Peterborough and she couldn’t be happier here. It’s been such a relief for our family knowing our Mom is so content and well cared for. Thank you Applewood!!
Thirty days in Applewood, Peterborough, Ontario provided me with exactly the R&R I most needed after hip surgery. The professional nursing and PSW care available to me were enormously reassuring. The meals were excellent. I enjoyed a serviced, spacious, and comfortable room with bathroom and balcony at an affordable price and the opportunity to exercise regularly both inside and outside the building in a safe and delightful environment. My good fortune to recuperate among others in a situation like mine as well as to socialize with interesting long-term residents, added to my satisfaction and education.
All staff at Applewood are welcoming, caring, efficient, patient, and courteous. I am delighted to have made the decision to spend 30 days here. Applewood’s services, activities and facilities guaranteed simpler and faster recuperation for me and, of equal importance, essential reassurance, relief, and respite for my wife!
