Discover the active, entertaining lifestyle at Chartwell Oakville

Chartwell Oakville is a contemporary retirement community in uptown Oakville offering a worry-free lifestyle for independent seniors looking to benefit from convenient services and optional support. Featuring soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces, comfortable furnishings, a variety of modern amenities, and spacious and well-appointed suites, there’s no denying the standard of living at Chartwell Oakville is one to be admired. Yet, one of the biggest draws to the residence is its vibrant and overall gratifying lifestyle.

Friends chatting over lunch in the dining room or clinking wine glasses in the pub; residents getting in a workout during a fitness class or assembling to continue efforts on a charitable project; or a group gathered around the piano to listen to each other play and sing—the lively energy in the air is palpable as soon as you walk through the doors of Chartwell Oakville.

“We consider ourselves lucky to have such a diverse and enthusiastic group of people living with us,” says Claudia Dell’Anno, Lifestyle and Program Manager at Chartwell Oakville. “Our residents are active and independent individuals who want to enjoy life to the fullest. It’s created a great culture in our community.”

It’s also thanks to the wide array of social gatherings, recreational opportunities and outings on offer that Chartwell Oakville is such an engaging place to call home. “Nobody could ever claim to be bored living here. There’s so much to do, so much to choose from if you feel like it,” Claudia explains. “We organize different forms of entertainment and experiences each month that cater to different interests, and we’re always open to suggestion on what people would enjoy doing.”

Some recent events that residents took particular enjoyment in doing include celebrating National Martini Day with a delicious tasting (although most residents decided they’d ultimately stick with wine!), a Las Vegas casino night for charity, and a visit to their local animal shelter to show the cats and dogs some love. Their creative programming, aptly named Artful Aging, is also an experience many look forward to, as it has everyone dabbling with painting and other forms of art—a chance for imaginative and therapeutic fun.

“We strongly believe that the active lifestyle our residents lead is helping them to stay healthy and vibrant, and is ultimately prolonging their independence,” Claudia says. “And active doesn’t mean you’re working out non-stop. What I mean is that you’re leading a full life doing the things you love, like spending time with friends, continuing your hobbies, and perhaps doing something that challenges you.”
