Giving back is part of the social fabric at Chartwell and an important component of our commitment to supporting the communities in which we operate. Over the years, we have enthusiastically and compassionately supported a number of worthy initiatives, including Osteoporosis Canada, The Canadian Diabetes Association and The War Amps Operation Legacy.
We recently launched our partnership with Wish of a Lifetime Canada, a charity devoted to granting lifelong wishes to deserving seniors. The goal of the organization is to shift perceptions of how young individuals view seniors and demonstrate that growing old does not mean you need to stop dreaming and living a life of purpose.
The relationship between Wish of a Lifetime Canada and Chartwell builds on the joint commitment of each organization to serve seniors and raise awareness about the importance of helping to keep older adults dreaming, daring and discovering. These life-enriching wishes are designed to reconnect loved ones, renew and celebrate passions, fulfill lifelong dreams and commemorate service.
Canadian seniors, including Chartwell residents, are invited to share and submit their wishes by downloading an official application form at http://wishofalifetime.org/canada/.
For Chartwell residents whose wishes may not meet all the criteria for a Wish of a Lifetime, or may be smaller in nature, our Life Enrichment program, Moments that Matter, helps to fulfill those special and significant requests directly within your Chartwell residence.
