Chartwell Avondale Retirement Residence

1238 Queen Street East, Toronto, Ontario M4L 1C3
"Enjoy a social and supportive lifestyle in a charming retirement community in contemporary Leslieville.”

At Chartwell Avondale, safety is our highest priority. We continue to maintain strong infection protocols, including following all government directives and fostering safe social experiences for everyone’s peace of mind.

Chartwell Avondale Retirement Residence, located in the heart of Leslieville in Toronto’s east end, offers a vibrant and supportive lifestyle for seniors. Our retirement community sits atop a retail complex that features a variety of professional services, including a dental clinic, bank institutions and a bakery, and connects residents via Queen Street to nearby boutique shopping, cafés, restaurants and the lake. Easy access to local amenities, transit and Woodbine Beach isn’t the only thing you’ll love about our convenient urban locale; you’ll also enjoy the fabulous skyline views of the CN tower from our rooftop patio.

Offering a choice of bright and spacious studio and one-bedroom suites, three delicious daily meals, weekly housekeeping, optional supportive care services and parking, we’re the perfect place to spend your retirement.

Small-town charm in a big city

Chartwell Avondale may be in a big city, but inside our residence you’ll feel more like you’re a part of a small town of friends and family. Our long-standing staff and engaged population of residents are why we boast such a warm and inclusive atmosphere, where seniors from every background are welcome. Being a smaller home, we benefit from an intimate setting, where everyone can get to know one another well and staff can deliver a highly personalized experience that celebrates your interests and anticipates your individual needs. Here, you’ll belong to a closely connected community with an energetic vibe, where you can participate in social events, fitness classes, artistic pursuits or whatever makes you feel happy and fulfilled.

Personalized care and support for every need

One of the most appreciated aspects of our peace of mind lifestyle is our flexible independent supportive living services. Our care options are customized to your individual needs and preferences, and may include services such as medication management, assistance with your morning or evening routine, an escort to meals and much more. We have staff on-site 24-7 to support you, as well as our very own visiting doctor. Thanks to additional care services available through our valuable Care Assist program, you can rest assured that we can cater to your changing needs over time, allowing you to comfortably age in place and experience the worry-free retirement years you deserve.

To help you feel safe and supported, our Care Assist Program—an offering of à la carte wellness services and all-inclusive care packages—further provides you with the flexibility to add or remove services. This empowers you to create a customized care plan that meets your unique needs, preferences and abilities so you can feel your best each and every day.
