Chartwell Barrington was a wonderful retirement residence for our mother. The administration and staff were very flexible in working with our family to accommodate our mother's changing needs. Everyone there is friendly and helpful, and the food is great.

I have had the pleasure of visiting The Barrington as a family member and as a teacher. It is the residence of both of my grandmothers so I visit them, and I have the honor of visiting with my students. Hewitt's Creek P.S. participates in the Intergenerational Program which allows us to visit weekly in the spring. We get to play games, plant flowers, read to and bake with the residents. It is truly amazing to watch the interactions and friendships being built:). The staff are so kind, welcoming and extremely friendly. I always enjoy my time there:) It truly is an amazing place!

The always-friendly staff goes out of its way to ensure that our entertainment space is suitable for our setup. The complimentary words that A.J. Squires uses when she announces to the residents that we're about to begin is humbling indeed. We love putting smiles on the hearts of the residents at the Barrington! We're excited to be able to share on a monthly basis, too!

Thank you “Barrington” for being warm and inviting to my mother-in-law and father in-law. This has been a difficult transition for them and you have been so accommodating and welcoming. There are many people to thank but AJ stands out! She came personally a few times to Louise’s room to invite her to different events. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time and settling in that they both will begin to enjoy the next chapter of their lives.

My grandma (jean) absolutely loves her new home! Quality of life is so important as our loved ones age and I am so happy to see my grandma living life and loving her older years! Staff and fellow residence members are like family to her! Aj is always keeping her busy playing games and having fun! Thanks for all your care and compassion!

My dad has been at the Barrington for 2 years. From the moment he moved in, the staff has gone above and beyond to make him feel welcome. It is never an easy move, but he feels this is his home now, and that is due to the staff. From Toni on the front desk, who phones and reminds me of appts, to Lisa the nurse, and AJ and Sheila. Even Kristen who we met when we initially moved dad in, still stops and knows dad by name, and chats. The PSW's are who make life better for dad. They are the hardest working ladies, who show love and respect to my dad, every single day. They even get his quirky humour! They make my life less stressful, as I know he is being looked after, and is in a safe, warm and respectful atmosphere. It was a big decision moving dad from his home, and we certainly picked the right location.

My mother is a new resident at the Barrington, I live in BC, and not being there to visit is very hard. My mom does call me, and can't say enough of how wonderful the team is. The food is outstanding, so healthy. My mom loves Rose and Dustin, as they are so friendly and caring. AJ the activities gal, is so energetic and caring, that she will even flag my mom down and mention to Jean, that its something she will enjoy, and AJ is right!! thxs Barrington,

Cant say enough about the Barrington in Barrie. We have moved my mom from Guelph and it was very hard on my mom. She has adapted very well, thanks to AJ, the activities manager making sure my mom is taking part in all the social events. Everyday mom phones me to tell me what she did. So very happy
