It was with great anticipation that a capacity crowd of Youngsters of Yore attended last Thursday’s meeting in the Program Room of the North Grenville Public Library. Why such a strong interest?

The guest speaker was Eric Chartrand, co-owner and manager, Kemptville Retirement Living, currently under construction on Country Road 43. This 3-story building, expected to officially open in 2018, is locally owned and operated. Expertly designed, it will offer a full range of lifestyle options, including independent, full service, and care-and-service-by-design.

Mr. Chartrand’s visual presentation took the viewers on a virtual tour of the building and highlighted the various amenities and services. The beautifully designed dining room is a sight to behold! Flexible meal plans will be available, and for the sports- minded, there is a billiard and games room and ample recreational activities. A chapel, movie theatre, media room, and library (featuring computer stations) are part of the design, including a spacious community hall/lounge.

The exterior will feature outdoor patios and attractively landscaped surroundings. Residents will be able to apply their gardening skills. Two spacious elevators were noted. These were just a partial list of the services provided.

Kemptville retirement living owners are committed to making the residents feel at home and to creating an environment they can be proud of. The spotlight will be on their happiness, comfort, security, independence, peace of mind and care. A sense of belonging will be a constant, along with 24-hour camera surveillance. And, as Eric puts it: “we will be a pet friendly home”.

A vigorous question and answer period followed Mr. Chartrand’s presentation. The rich aroma of dark chocolate mints provided an upbeat conclusion along with the high tea and scrumptious pastries.
