Years at Riverstone: 13
Mike’s career in Retirement Living began over 30 years ago when he transitioned from the hotel industry; the move inspired by his own Grandmother’s experience living in a retirement residence in Toronto. In the years that followed, Mike managed a range of retirement residences in Southern Ontario and in Ottawa garnering a solid reputation as a respected and ethical operator. In 2007 Mike joined Claridge Homes to start Riverstone Retirement Communities.
Now, as Vice-President of Riverstone Retirement Communities, Mike is excited about the opportunity to make a positive difference in people’s lives to offer seniors the quality living experience they deserve. He has surrounded himself with a wonderful team and is proud to be managing a company that aims to be at the forefront of retirement living in the Ottawa area. It began with Oakpark, then Bridlewood Trails, Maplewood, Carlingwood, Stirling Park, Riverpath, Timberwalk and Willowbend. But it won’t stop there; Foxview is under construction and plans for future developments are on the horizon. Riverstone is continuing to grow.
At Maplewood we have assembled a great team that truly cares about seniors and understand their needs. There is always a vibrant world of choice either in activities, food, or lifestyle. At Maplewood no detail has been overlooked in creating a warm, friendly and caring lifestyle for you.

Food Service Manager
Jason Eden brings more than 25 years of experience in the Culinary World to the role of Food Service Manager at Maplewood. After growing up in Gaspé, Quebec and attending Bishop’s University in Lennoxville, Quebec, Jason has been fortunate to work in kitchens throughout Eastern Canada from Ottawa, to St John’s NL and as far North as Iqaluit, Nunavut.
Jason feels the most important thing he brings is the care and love given to, and through, food instilled by watching and helping his Mother, Grandmother’s, and Aunt’s prepare family meals. When developing new menus Jason uses the conversations he has with the residents and regularly incorporates their suggestions.
