Retirement Living vs Aging at Home

Are you considering whether the lifestyle in a retirement residence may suit you or a loved one better than aging in your current home, where you may be alone or without support that can make your life happier, healthier and more fulfilling?

Here are six reasons you may choose retirement living over aging at home:

1) Safe social experiences
Living in a community of peers and staff is one of the best aspects of retirement living. Whether you’re dining or joining an activity, you will enjoy regular opportunities to socialize and meet new friends. Chartwell staff love to foster fun experiences that bring people together for moments of laughter and amusement, creating an safe and welcoming atmosphere where you feel connected to your community.

2) Delicious and nutritious dining
Life’s best moments are enjoyed with friends, and that includes the dining experience at Chartwell. Let our staff serve you an ever-changing menu of delicious and nutritious dishes using fresh ingredients so you don’t have to worry about grocery shopping, meal planning or the clean-up afterwards!

3) Staff onsite 24/7
For enhanced peace of mind, someone is always onsite at Chartwell residences to support you, day or night. Our trained and friendly staff genuinely care about your happiness and wellbeing, and consistent staffing means you will get to know and trust the people who serve and support you.

4) Onsite activities and outings
There’s always something entertaining going on in a Chartwell residence thanks to our staff. Book clubs, gardening, Happy Hours, fitness classes and brain exercise are just some of the activities on offer if you feel like doing something fun, with staff encouraging physical distancing and following other precautions when required. Transportation services mean we’re also available to drive you to appointments or to run errands, as well as shuttle you on safe and fun group outings.

5) Worry-free living
You have time for an engaging social life, delicious dining and opportunities for fun because a retirement living lifestyle is maintenance-free! We take care of things like suite repairs, landscaping and snow-shoveling so you the freedom and energy to focus on what brings you the most happiness in life.

6) Enhanced safety and infection prevention measures
While Chartwell residences have always maintained strong infection protocols, our enhanced safety measures are there to help residents, their families and our staff feel protected and supported. Precautions such as regular surveillance of resident health, masking and screening for staff and visitors, and increased cleaning and disinfection help ensure you can enjoy your retirement living experience with confidence and peace of mind.
