Born in Kirkland Lake, Rosal Yade’s “small town” community values are her biggest inspiration for programming in retirement communities. From the early age of four, Rosal has been entertaining people on the piano. It is there she discovered her love of putting a smile on the faces of others through her music. Volunteering with events and special causes both locally & internationally, became her passion. By the time she graduated from high school, she had composed music for three musicals. This collective passion of being involved, brought her to Ottawa in 2012. She attended Algonquin College and earned her Diploma in Recreation & Leisure Studies. Since 2014, Rosal has been sharing her passion of music, event planning and creative programming with seniors in retirement communities throughout Ottawa. Her pastimes include being involved in her local church, cooking & baking, swimming and spending time with her large family.

She is thrilled to be joining the Riverpath Riverstone community to continue to engage the residents in all dimensions of wellness and within their community.

What our Residents are Saying

“I feel so lucky to have chosen Carlingwood as my new home, I’ve made so many friends who have been both caring and supportive.  I feel like I’ve been given a new extended family.”

– Mrs. B. C.

“We are MGs children and we would like to thank everyone for their assistance with moving Mom to the assisted living floor. Special thanks to your wonderful staff – they go above and beyond the call of duty.”

– LG, AC and WM

“RE: Tornado Power Outage Sep 2018. To Kate and all the staff – thank you so much all of you for the wonderful job you did keeping everything going so well during the power outage. Especially to Henry and the kitchen staff for keeping us so well fed!”

– R&S H

“Hi Kate and Rico,
 Thank you for all you and the staff did during the power outage over the weekend. I was there most of the weekend and I saw what you and the staff were doing to keep things as ‘normal’ as possible and to make people feel secure and comfortable. I could see a lot of kindness and extra attention and security happening. I know the two of you were there most of the time. As a family member, that was very reassuring for me. 
Thank you for all that everyone did to get the residents through this. You two and the staff are amazing.”

– LM

“We are MGs children and we would like to thank everyone for their assistance with moving Mom to the assisted living floor. Special thanks to your wonderful staff – they go above and beyond the call of duty.”

– LG, AC and WM

“Over the months, she truly viewed it as home. She also made new friends, which helped her mindset tremendously as she was isolated in her old apartment and had no real social interaction outside family and doctors. She has been lucky to be relatively healthy and independent, but we always knew Carlingwood had solutions should she need additional assistance. It was also evident that the staff acted like a family (everyone knew everyone else and all just wanted to help) which significantly contributed to a positive environment. I know that culture is hard to cultivate and impossible to fake.”

– Chris
