Enjoy an exceptional retirement lifestyle centered on convenience, culture, and the comfort of family.
Chartwell Wescott is an upscale retirement community offering independent living and memory care services that reflects the growing neighbourhood it calls home. Our convenient location in Ambleside, an area in the Windermere neighbourhood of south Edmonton, provides easy access to a variety of local amenities—from grocery stores, coffee shops, golf courses and restaurants to shopping and movie theatres.
Where families come together
One of the many reasons our residents enjoy our attractive residential area is that their children and grandchildren call it home too. We’ve embraced our intergenerational neighbourhood by offering on-site amenities that celebrate being close to family, including a kid’s zone where young family members can play during visits, a demonstration kitchen where you can bake a treasured family recipe together, and a private dining room that can be booked for special family events.
Culture, convenience and leisure
Chartwell Wescott provides a variety of well-appointed amenities—from an art studio and pool to a yoga room and dog wash spa. When you aren’t leafing through a book in our cozy lounge or getting your hair or nails done in our salon, you may find yourself enjoying a delicious meal in the dining room or a cup of coffee in our bistro. We also offer social, leisure, and entertainment experiences that you can choose to participate in at will. And another unique aspect of life in our home? We offer chauffeur services in our luxury town car that you can book for appointments and shopping, as well as a grocery delivery service. Home care support is also available through Alberta Health Services.

Things to do in Edmonton
Edmonton is Alberta’s capital city, known as the Gateway to the North and situated on the majestic North Saskatchewan River, with a population of over one million people. It’s a wonderful place to call home, not only because of its spectacular river valley—the longest stretch of connected urban parkland in North America—but its vibrant arts, cultural, educational, recreational, and sporting attractions. The Old Strathcona district includes numerous theatres, the city’s largest indoor farmer’s market, and many independent stores, bars, and restaurants along Whyte Avenue. The city is also home to University of Alberta, McEwan University, West Edmonton Mall, Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium, and the Edmonton Oilers. Don’t forget popular attractions like the Royal Alberta Museum, Citadel Theatre, Telephone Historical Centre, Fort Edmonton Park, Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Elk Island Park, K-Days, Muttart Conservatory, Alberta Legislature Building, and TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival.
