Chartwell Empress Kanata Memory Care

170 McGibbon Drive, Kanata, Ontario K2L 4H5
“Offering specialized support for individuals living with dementia and their family.”

At Chartwell Empress Kanata, the safety of our residents and staff is our highest priority. While we have always maintained strong infection protocols, we have enhanced our safety measures, continue to follow all government directives for heightened infection control, and foster safe social experiences within our residence for everyone’s safety and peace of mind.

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.

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!

Chartwell Empress Kanata’s Memory Living Neighbourhood includes the following specialized programs and services:

  • Small resident-to-staff ratios
  • Secure and interactive environment with 24-hour supervision, including access to lovely outdoor space
  • Specialized life-enrichment programming and family-style dining
  • Flexible routines that balance structure with spontaneity
  • Person-centred care plans reflective of residents’ unmet needs, abilities, and interests
  • Dedicated Memory Living Manager and Social Worker to support families

Chartwell Empress Kanata enjoys a strong reputation in the Kanata community due in large part to our Memory Living Neighbourhood, which is regarded as a safe and supportive home for seniors living with dementia. We are proud to be a resource for families who are looking for support, education, and personal counselling services during and after their loved one’s transition to memory care.
