Employee Appreciation Month

What does it mean to be #ChartwellStrong? It is the resilience, strengh and courage of our incredible 16,000+ employees. We are so grateful to the extrordinary people working in our retirement residences and our long term care homes.

Employee Appreciation Month is our opportunitiy to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our incredible #ChartwellStrong employees. Throughout the month, our residences and corporate support teams have a number of exciting events and surprises planned to thank our employees and show our appreciation of their exceptional work. We look forward to sharing some of the unique recognition events with you later this month.

Last year, we created an e-book entitled “#ChartwellStrong: A tribute to our heroic employees,” featuring 38 corporate and frontline employees who went above and beyond their roles to Make People’s Lives Better. Please take some time to read these impactful and heartwarming stories of strength, perseverance and empathy.

I’d also like to acknowledge National Nurses Week from May 9-15, as well as Personal Support Worker (PSW) Day on May 19. Our heroic and dedicated nurses and PSWs demonstrate tremendous courage and commitment each day, and especially over the past two years. This month, please help us recognize these exceptional people that make a meaningful difference in the lives of our loved ones.

Chartwell In the News

Recently, our Vice President of Marketing and Communications, Sharon Ranalli, was interviewed by to discuss an important topic, the affordability of aging. The article touched on a number of key points, including the importance of having a proactive and upfront conversation with your loved one about their future wishes, the affordability of care options, and the value of seeking out advice from a trusted financial advisor prior to making any major life decision.

It’s a thoughtful and insightful read, visit to read the full article, or share with others who may find it helpful.

Holiday Celebrations

Senior residence at Chartwell Heritage Glen is happily smiling while holding a date at a program about Ramadan organized by student Sayed and volunteer Kanza.

The month of Ramadan recently concluded, and I’d like to extend my warmest wishes to all those who celebrated Eid al-Fitr. At Chartwell Heritage Glen, in Mississauga, Ontario, student Sayed and volunteer Kanza created a beautiful informative program about Ramadan, with many personal touches and anecdotes. As a treat, everyone received a date, a traditional fruit consumed at the end of each fast day. Thank you to all those who helped to create such a special and memorable experience for our residents.

As well, I’d like to wish all our residents and employees a very happy belated Mother’s Day. I hope you felt the love and appreciation from your family and friends that you all so genuinely deserve.

A Worthy Read

“Never Split the Difference: Negotiating as if your life depended on this” by Chris Voss and Tahl Raz. Chris Voss, a former FBI hostage negotiator, shares his field-tested approach to negotiating. Full of fresh theories and real-life examples, the book is an easy and interesting read with many practical negotiating tools for any situation.
