What is Independent Living?

Independent living is a lifestyle option offered at Chartwell that can include a range of convenient services, such as housekeeping, leisure opportunities and outings, and even the availability of à la carte dining options at an additional fee. Typically, seniors who choose independent living do not require any personal care services, and are seeking social engagement, convenience and the peace of mind of a secure community.

Independent living accommodations at Chartwell retirement communities can vary—from retirement living suites with kitchenettes, to seniors apartments with full kitchens, to townhomes, cottages and bungalows.

Benefits of Independent Living

Are you seeking a worry-free lifestyle uninhibited by some of the tasks associated with homeownership, such as general maintenance, yard work or even snow shovelling? Would you benefit from living in a community setting where you can socialize with friends whenever you choose? When you have retirement living conveniences like housekeeping, peace of mind services like 24-hour security and emergency response, and even entertainment and outings at your disposal, you’ll find it frees up your time to live your retirement exactly how you want to, and in a setting that can adapt to your needs as they change over time.
