CORNWALL, Ontario – Riverdale Terrace is planning on beginning their phase two expansion in May.

The new development will add a structure west of the main building that could accommodate as many as 50 residents. The new structure will have a parking space with 18 new parking spots.

The building will have three floors, with the second being a locked floor for those requiring assisted living. There will be two laundry facilities per floor with the second and third floors connected to the main building.

The new development will mean that Riverdale Terrace’s staff will be growing as well. They will be adding 12 new staff members including nurses and Personal Support Workers (PSW)s who will support residents on the second floor 24/7.

“The market said we had a need here, we know there is a need here and we are doing it for the community,” said JC Godard who co-owns Riverdale Terrace with his wife Suzi.

Riverdale Terrace was completed in 2012 with support from shareholders. As of Feb. 28, 2019 the Godards have bought all outstanding shares and are now 100 per cent owners.

“Let it be known that without Trenholm Healy and the past shareholders we would not be here today,” said Godard. The Godards bought the land that Riverdale Terrace sits on in Aug. 2008.

The $8.8 million new development is expected to take eight months to complete.

Those interested in reserving a spot in the new development are asked to call 613-363-3823 and ask for Amanda.
