Along a stretch of the Veterans Memorial Parkway in
London, Ont., Revera’s Horizon Place took the lead on
what was a different and majestic tribute: the Forget
Me Not Forest.
The project was part of a living legacy to Canada’s
servicemen and women. “It’s the idea of having a living
monument, something that will stand through time,”
says Michelle Gatt, Executive Director at Horizon Place.
The tree plantings were a salute to veterans who’ve
experienced Alzheimer’s disease. A partnership
between Horizon Place and two other Revera
communities in London, Maple View Terrace and
Windermere on the Mount, the project kicked off when
about 15 staff from the three communities gathered
on the side of the road to do a cleanup, picking up
everything from clothing to car parts.
The campaign also involved Parkwood Hospital and
some businesses in the vicinity of the parkway. Called
Toonies for Trees, the partners aimed to raise $20,000.
Ever since it opened in 2005, River Ridge has developed a strong
reputation for warmth and excellence. On June 2, this dynamic
retirement community located in St. Albert, Alta., became part
of Revera. We’re honoured to serve this community and thrilled
that the outstanding staff who’ve made River Ridge such a
wonderful place have joined our Revera family.
Welcome River Ridge!
WE ARE GROWING IN ALBERTA!
