Riverwood Retreat Centre
We offer a place of peace and beauty for those dealing with the diagnosis of life-threatening illness. Escape the noise and distraction of the city and be refreshed by the beauty of nature at its finest.
Wooded pathways and beautiful perennial gardens are available for your pleasure and relaxation.
Enjoy our home-cooked meals served in the country dining room. Special attention will be given to the specific dietary needs of our guests.
Encouragement and Supportive Conversation
Your caregivers, Bert and Marilyn Peel, will be available for times of encouragement and supportive conversation.
Take time to relax in our beautiful guest living room. Sleep well in one of our four bedrooms – each with a private bath.
The Retreat Centre opened June 10, 1997. It is designed to provide an opportunity for persons with life threatening illness and caregivers to come to terms with themselves, their illness and their spiritual state.
