Chartwell Fountains of Mission is a boutique-like retirement residence in an intimate, tucked away location within five minutes of downtown Calgary. Our recently renovated community is known for its vibrant and social energy, delicious dining experience and personalized services designed to make your retirement years worry-free.
An established neighbourhood with metropolitan amenities
Our residents cherish the neighbourhood we call home, especially as we’re within a short distance of many local amenities, including boutique shopping, fine-dining restaurants and popular cafés on Historic 4th Street, 17th Avenue and Elbow Drive. Boasting walking paths along the winding Elbow River, leafy parks and numerous local eateries, grocery stores and pharmacies, it’s no wonder our location has one of the best walking scores in the city.
Conversation, culture, and cuisine
Many of our residents find that once they move in, their social network quickly expands. The lifestyle at our retirement community promotes conversation and connection: walk through our doors and you’ll see people chatting together in the bistro over a cup of coffee, painting together in the art room, listening to someone play the piano in our fireplace lounge, or exchanging thoughts during a guest speaker presentation or meeting of the Men’s Club. Our lovely dining room is also a place of lively conversation and laughter, inspired by the award-winning dining experience delivered by Chef Lee, our Chef de Cuisine who prepares meals emphasizing fresh, locally-sourced fare, seasonal flavours, and beautiful plate presentation.
