Exploring Retirement Living Options:

Retirement residences offer a variety of lifestyles to benefit seniors. Independent seniors looking for support with cooking or cleaning; individuals who need daily personalized assistance to live more comfortably; or older adults who require nursing care or dementia support, Chartwell Retirement Residences offers a lifestyle option that can meet their unique needs and preferences.

Ideal for active older adults who want to hand over the maintenance of their home, independent living accommodations vary from seniors apartments or suites in a retirement community to townhomes, cottages and bungalows. Services may include 24-hour security, housekeeping, access to leisure opportunities and outings, and the availability of à la carte dining options for an additional fee.

Designed for seniors who are still active and independent and could benefit from some additional support, independent supportive living may include services like delicious meals, housekeeping, leisure opportunities and outings and 24-hour emergency response, as well as access to wellness and support services like medication monitoring and administration.

Our assisted living services are designed to provide individuals who require daily support with a comfortable lifestyle meant to maintain or improve their quality of life. In addition to delicious and nutritious meals, specialized activities and programming, housekeeping and 24-hour emergency response, assisted living residents may receive personalized support with aspects of their daily routine, medication administration, an escort to meals and activities, and much more.

For seniors living with cognitive impairment, Chartwell offers memory care services meant to help seniors experience a good day, every day. Staff are trained in dementia support and deliver specialized activities and programming in a secure setting of the retirement community.

Long term care residences offer seniors with complex medical needs or advanced stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia 24-hour nursing care, including assistance with an individual’s daily routine and high levels of personal support. Admission and funding is overseen by local government health authorities in each province.
