Testimonials

Having been involved with the musical program at Dovehill for many years, I have always enjoyed the homelike atmosphere, the pleasant d├ęcor with light and airy rooms, the spotless kitchen with delicious and varied meals and the staff who are delightful and always cheery.
I am looking forward to spending three weeks this year in respite.

Dovehill House has been my Mum's home for the past six years, and we are still as impressed and delighted with it as we were when we first discovered it. It is truly 'home' for Mum. The staff are like daughters to her. They love her, they spoil her and they appreciate her. They also respect her privacy, but make her feel included in all the various activities, if she chooses to participate. I really believe that Mum's health and well-being have been enhanced by the socialization, excellent food, and overall warm and welcoming atmosphere that exists at Dovehill. I have often said to my husband, that I would like to book a room at Dovehill for both of us twenty years down the road.

Many Chemainacs see Dovehill House as a community within a community. It's a fabulous place, set in the forest and featuring wide views of the ocean. But it's the joy of life within Dovehill itself that is the real beauty. Residents thrive in the family atmosphere, their lives enhanced by the activities and friendships that abound.

It's always a delight to spend time with the residents at Dovehill. I feel that they each teach me just as much as I teach them. It's really satisfying to see the gift of yoga in every breath. These ageless students are always so open to my teachings, there's nothing I enjoy more than seeing the progress of the people who are like one big family.

I have had the pleasure of knowing both Marguerite and the people who have worked at Dovehill House since it was built fifteen years ago. It is one of the friendliest senior residences to visit and guests are very welcome. When they put on an 'event' it is always open house and I think that the interaction with the community is what sets Dovehill House apart from other facilities.

Our Mom has lived at Dovehill House for two years and calls it her ' home'. The staff have accommodated her physical, emotional, and social needs in a professional, personal, and friendly manner while promoting her independence in a healthy lifestyle. As family, we have always felt included and supported by the staff for our Mom's care, decisions, and activities held within Dovehill.
