Devonshire Retirement Residence – Windsor, ON

Windsor Assisted Living

901 Riverside Drive West, Windsor, ON N9A 7J6 View Map

Devonshire Retirement Residence in Windsor, Ontario embraces the highest standards in retirement care, offering a modern, enjoyable physical space and a staff genuinely committed to providing compassionate, intelligent care. 

Accommodations

Devonshire Retirement Residence is beautifully situated next to Lake St. Clair in Windsor; residents tend to linger over their morning coffee whilst sitting on their private balconies, many of which overlook the lake. And later return to the exact same spot to watch spectacular sunsets disappear over the Detroit skyline.

Our accommodations are one-bedroom or studio apartments with walk-in closets, fully functional kitchenettes and spacious bathrooms. You can choose among several imaginative floor plans, and you are more than welcome to bring your small pet to live with you.

We place your security and safety at the top of our list of priorities, maintaining a fail-safe emergency call system and providing wheelchair access throughout our property. Our vigilant staff members are always available.

Lifestyle

At Devonshire, your schedule can be remarkably active; you might find yourself lifting weights in a morning exercise class before heading off to prune some roses in the garden, after which there is lunch with your neighbour before the trip to … you get the idea. Or you might choose a much less frenetic schedule, filled with long hours set aside for reading biographies of politicians or lounging in the garden. It is totally up to you!

Our philosophy is that retirement living should be squarely focused on you finding a meaningful lifestyle that brings you happiness and fulfillment.

Dining

Our spacious, inviting dining room provides a splendid setting for our meals, which are carefully prepared, appetizing and wholesome. We fully frown upon ho-hum options at mealtime; you will not find our menus to be repetitive. We are gratified that our residents look forward to mealtimes as special, relaxing parts of their day.

Should you fancy eating in your room, we are more than happy to accommodate you. You should also know that when the snacking hour arrives, be it mid-morning, mid-afternoon or in the evening, there are always healthful drinks and snacks available.

Services

We understand that your daily schedule is important to your happiness. Our outstanding facilities are well maintained – from our chapel to our library to our café to our barbershop ­– and we are experts at making sure your daily plans unfold smoothly, just as they should.

We offer these services and more. We encourage you to contact us if you are considering stepping into a new lifestyle at Devonshire Retirement Residence. An enjoyable way to discover what we do is to arrange for a trial stay. We are always excited to meet new friends.

Great place but meals could be much improved

Mom and dad love the place as do I BUT the meals need to be improved. Last week mom and dad went for lunch and they were having perogies (mom loves them) but she was told she could only have three as they did not have very many. Also last week dad ordered Salisbury steak, well they did not have any so they substituted a cold fruit plate instead. I wonder what would happen if the kitchen supervisor went to a nice restaurant and ordered steak but was served a fruit plate at the same price. Yesterday their choices for dinner was Pesto chicken, fruit plate, Seafood salad, sandwich on croissant, Assorted deli meat sandwiches with peas and carrots. At the very least they should have had a hot meal. For the price they are paying they should have decent wholesome meals. Unless changes are made there is no way I would recommend this to a friend or relative.

Respite Care

I chose Devonshire on recommendations from friends and it was a wonderful experience after my knee replacement. Sandy was very welcoming on my first visit and is a genuinely friendly and empathetic person. The entire staff were always smiling and happy to be of service and helped out where ever they were needed. My adult children were amazed by the friendliness that they were also greeted with. The entire staff never appeared disgruntled, nor too busy to stop for questions or directions or even just a smile. Thumbs Up for everything.

Very Impressed!

Sandy was very welcoming and provided lots of important information and answered our questions fully. The residents seemed content and their home setting was lovely. We left the meeting feeling sure our Dad would be content living at Devonshire Retirement Residence.

I was very impressed with the tour I had at Devonshire Residence. I plan on moving my father there in the very near future and I am confident he will find it very helpful.

I am so grateful to the staff and management!

Everyone at Devonshire has been exceptionally helpful and kind in helping my dear Omi settle into her living situation. Sandy and Tanya handled the situation of our sudden need to move with grace and compassion, and activities director Debra has gone above and beyond! I can't thank you all enough.

I received a lot of information while touring, but found the home to be "old" not fresh.
