     "I could not be happier, I wake up each day to a delicious breakfast and think what do I want to do today. Life at RSBL has exceeded my expectations, I wish I had made this move years ago. I really struggled with shopping, housekeeping chores and making meals for myself, but now I have great people to support me and they make me laugh and feel good about myself".         - J P
     "I am just happy to be moved in and settled before the snow and ice. I used to struggle getting out to shop, but now I just have to look over the menu to see what Chef Paul will be serving in the Dining Room". Sunday evenings are like I remember; Roast Beef with all the fixings, nothing better and comforting than that".         - AF
     "I enjoy the daily exercise programs, they really keep me moving and we have a lot of fun together. I feel better exercising for the morning instead of watching tv or sitting reading. I know I would not be doing classes if I had stayed in my our home. I am moving better now and my balance has improved, I am more confident to go on walks to Rosetta Rose Park next door".         - B E
     "My family used to worry if I was taking my medication properly; the right does at the right time. I used to for forget, but now the staff remember for me and keep everything in order. My family feels better so I feel better, thank you Cassandra and all her staff at the Wellness Centre. The staff are on site 24 hours a day so I am able to call or use my emergency pendant for help".         - M W
     My two week stay at “Retirement Suites By the Lake” was beyond my expectations. I was at “ The Spa” ( as I liked to call it ) to recuperate from a knee replacement and was met with supportive and caring attention by all the staff . My suite was immaculate, the food delicious, but most importantly, the concern , compassion and encouragement for my well being , by everyone involved , was over whelming . A special thanks to Diane and Cassandra , who made the arrangements for my stay , and subsequen        - L R
