CORNWALL, Ontario – Construction has begun on the Riverdale Terrace expansion project. 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.
“We are expanding to better serve the needs of seniors in our community,” said J-C Godard, who owns Riverdale Terrace with his wife Suzi. “When seniors are ready to leave the responsibility and hassle of owning a home they can move in to Riverdale Terrace with the comfort of knowing they are in a secure facility where services are tailored to their needs.”
