AMICA Riverside - luncheon and tour


David Palmer and Keshia Kersey again

David Palmer and Keshia Kersey who hosted the luncheon and tour of AMICA Riverside - welcoming comments.

OK, this was fun! And informative! (And I can't seem to be able to make a proper or complete sentence.)

Keshia Kersey, Community Relations Coordinator at AMICA Riverside, graciously hosted twenty WURA members (well, maybe it was nineteen members - I counted but forgot to remember the number) on April 30, 2019. We were treated to a light lunch; sandwiches, salads, fruit and cheese plates, coffee, tea prior to an all too short tour of their amazing facility. This place is a ten! We also encountered a couple UWindsor retirees who live there, by the way.

For those who were not able to join us but are interested in learning more of what AMICA Riverside has to offer check out their Website or you can contact Keshia Kersey if you have any questions. 

Many thanks to Keshia and her staff for a very pleasant and informative afternoon.

So here are some pictures, not presented in any order.

Vito Signorile - so this is where Mackenzie Hall is now.

Vito Signorile - the moment one realizes that this is where Mackenzie Hall is. It's the library and meeting room on the nth floor. The view was incredible. 

The kitchen where people can make their own food if they want.

The kitchen where you can cook, and if you're like me, try to learn to cook. From left to right; Richard Householder, David Palmer, Lucy Kroeker, Lonnie Palmer, John McIntosh, Keshia Kersey and Veronika Mogyorody.

The plant room. OK ... I am not a gardener.

This is the spa. People asking questions.

Haircut, pedicure and everything in between. This is the full service spa at AMICA Riverside. Complete top to bottom care. 

Closing comments - Vito, David, Martin and Keshia (who gave out cookies).

This is a sample of a resident's apartment. Very "Marie Kondo mininalist look.

An example of a single bedroom suite. The decorator was not Marie Kondo. It's just been cleaned up and waiting for a new resident to move in.
