Relax and watch the sun set against the beautiful Tay River while you enjoy a hot drink from our bistro. We’re ideally located near Ottawa on the banks of the river in a residential neighbourhood only minutes from shops, restaurants and amenities. Swap news with friends while you treat yourself in our beauty spa and salon, or enjoy a game of darts. Teach your grandkids how to play music on our piano, or show them your signature swing at a nearby golf course. Bake your favourite dish for the dinner you’re hosting in our private dining room, or sit back and enjoy a film in our home theatre. When you’re here, every day is full of possibility!

What residents and families are saying

  • “I have had my first Sunday evening dinner here at Carolina [Retirement Residence]. It was roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, corn and long-bean veggies. It was delicious… well prepared, well placed upon the plate. It was a delight… Thank you for making my home at Carolina such a wonderful place.”

  • “Our little dog [lives] with us [at Carolina Retirement Residence]. She is a firm favourite with other residents and it’s wonderful having her with us. Both Jim and I love the bistro and lounge… where we can enjoy a snack any time of the day or night… it’sis often the stage for special acts. Entertainment is always on the agenda.”

  • “Our cozy one-bedroom apartment [at Carolina Retirement Residence has] incredible views of the beautiful River Tay guarded on both sides by a sentinel of tall trees, bushes, grasses and wild flowers – a scene taken right out of a Constable landscape painting and constantly changing with the seasons.”

  • The main reason though is a much simpler one…Carolina is HOME!”

  • “Carolina [Retirement Residence] is HOME! It feels like HOME and we are made to feel at home. Of course, we have our apartment… but from the very start it was made clear the rest of the residence was to be viewed as an extension of that apartment – in other words: it is all our HOME!”
