Chartwell Empress Kanata Memory Care

170 McGibbon Drive, Kanata, Ontario K2L 4H5

“Offering specialized support for individuals living with dementia and their family.”

Chartwell Empress Kanata’s Memory Living Neighbourhood is a supportive and independent environment for seniors living with dementia. Located on a secure floor on the ground level of the retirement residence, our Neighbourhood features interactively designed studio and one-bedroom suites with memory-cue signage, soothing colours, non-slip floors and large windows with views of our interior courtyard. With a unique person-centred approach to memory care, our trained and caring staff establish strong social connections with your loved one to foster trust and familiarity, and partner with you to learn each person’s life history.

Flexible care and support

To ensure personalized support, 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.

Imagine your future apartment

There is nothing better than browzing suite plans and visualize the possible layout of your next living space within our home. You can choose from a selection of different suite types available in our residence. While features vary from one plan to another, our Retirement Living Consultants are in the best position to highlight the differences and find the suite that will be meeting your unique needs.

Worry-free lifestyle with flexibility

To support the families of residents living with cognitive impairment, a dedicated Social Worker is available to provide orientation, facilitate family conferences and deliver counselling services. We encourage you to reach out anytime to our Memory Living Manager, who is on hand to provide the support you need and provide updates on your loved one’s happiness and well-being. In fact, one reason our neighbourhood has a wonderfully warm feel is thanks to family visiting so often. It isn’t uncommon to see family members staying to participate in an activity with a loved one, or out in the courtyard in the summertime firing up our barbecue!
