Chartwell Clair Hills Retirement Residence

530 Columbia Street West, Waterloo, Ontario N2T 0B1
“Experience upscale, worry-free retirement living in Waterloo, thanks to flexible services personalized to your lifestyle.”

At Chartwell Clair Hills, 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 Clair Hills is an upscale continuum of care retirement residence in the Laurelwood neighbourhood of Waterloo offering a convenient and flexible lifestyle in a refined setting that reflects all the comforts of home. Our established retirement community is known for its vibrant and energetic atmosphere, where you can comfortably age in place as your needs change over time.

Stylish suites and modern amenities

Shaker-style millwork, dark oak and nickel accents, stone fireplace features, floor-to-ceiling windows—is this classic Arts and Crafts-inspired design what you thought of when you imagined living in a retirement community? Here, you’ll find the sophistication that defines our residence extends from the front door right into the privacy of your personal living space. We offer a wide selection of suite sizes and layouts, including spacious studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-den suites. Every layout includes tasteful design features that speak to our devotion to the smallest of details—from kitchenettes with custom-quality cabinetry and pewter lever hardware to upgraded baseboards and individually-controlled heating and cooling—as well as spectacular views of our surrounding greenspace.

When you aren’t enjoying your beautiful suite, you may find yourself in one of our many modern amenities, such as our bistro pub, saltwater pool, activity room, library or salon and spa. We also have a solarium for individuals who enjoy gardening, exercise facilities and a movie theatre—meaning there’s something for everyone.

An elegant, worry-free lifestyle designed by you

At Chartwell Clair Hills, we offer a complement of valuable independent supportive living services designed to empower you to live each day to the fullest. Delicious cuisine served daily in our attractive dining room means you don’t have to worry about preparing your own meals or the bother of dishes afterwards; housekeeping services mean your personal living space always feels fresh and inviting; and a variety of optional leisure experiences means you can pursue a new hobby, socialize with friends or simply enjoy something fun and entertaining. The choice is yours, and that also applies to the flexible wellness services we offer to help you feel your best so you can focus on what’s most important in your life.
