Oxford Gardens is home to many people I know and care for. They all report that their experience at Oxford Gardens has been very positive and they would not want to be anywhere else at this time of their lives. Staff are kind and courteous. Community involvement has been appreciated and the partners Oxford Gardens has established puts them above the others. Thanks to all you do for all the residents I care for they all feel at home with the help you provide.

In November of 2018, I became concerned for my Family member's welling being because he had lost a substantial amount of weight over a very short period of time. Everyday activities began to become a bit of a challenge. I began to worry about things like him managing steps in his old unit and that he might fall with no one being there, Simple things like using the oven, getting out to buy groceries and getting the mail seemed more of a challenge than they used to be. Staff at Oxford Gardens made the transition to his new way of independence very easy. As a Family member, I am no longer worrying. Staff encourages everyone to get up, get dressed and have three healthy meals a day. I see a much healthier man (who was once a bit of a loaner) now sitting at a table and eating his meals with newfound friends. He once walked the trails outdoors but now he walks through the hallways. I don't have to worry about him getting lost in the woods somewhere. Staff address him by name. I just can't believe the difference in such a short time. Kudos to all of the staff at Chartwell Oxford Gardens. Seems like one big happy Family who genuinely care about everyone's well being. I would highly recommend Oxford Gardens.

I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I enjoy choosing my activities every day from the monthly calendar.If you are sick, staff are regularly checking on you and care for all your needs. Being here has helped me stay healthy and active while recognizing my health care concerns. This also helps my family not worry about me. I really enjoy our H.O.P.E program assisting others in the community through fundraising and helpful events. I love Oxford Gardens because I feel at home!! I love the craft programs, outings, shopping in and out of town and lunch outings!! I would highly recommend anyone to give it a try!! I did , and I love it!!

After my wife's passing my son and daughter in law arranged my moving in to Oxford Gardens. Being married for almost 68 years I found it very difficult to function. In fact I don't know how I managed to go through the first few month. With the caring and so very helpful staff as well pleasant surroundings I could not have found a better place myself. The food is excellent and so are their people here So thank you Oxford Gardens and my son for finding this place, I could not have done better myself.

We are 87 & 85 years old and have chosen Oxford Gardens because living at home in Bracebridge was a concern for our family. For them it was a great distance for family to visit and be available for emergencies. They were concerned about the maintenance of our home ,stairs, and isolation during the winter months. Driving in bad weather,meal preparation and getting to appointments were also a concern. Family currently nearby and found Oxford Gardens to be their choice. For us we have found our home to be the right choice and feel settled here. We enjoy the people, staff are pleasant, caring and very helpful. We enjoy the recreation opportunities, entertainment, and dinner outings!! This is our home and we feel safe!! We would highly recommend Oxford Gardens to family and friends! When comparing with our home finances in maintaining a home and staying here, we found Oxford Gardens to be financially viable and cost effective.

We chose Oxford Gardens as our preferred retirement residence several years ago when we were on our township's Health and Wellness Committee. We just did not know how soon we would need it. Our sons were delighted with our choice and thanks to Jeff, we were able to move in when we needed to. He also provided us with helpful information for our transitional consultant who made our move very smooth. Chantal and Sara provide many activities to stimulate brain and body. The whole facility has great staff and we are so pleased to be here.

My mother, Sybil Chandler, has been living at your attractive, wellmaintained residence for several years now and she is very pleased with the services that you provide. However, there is presently one thing lacking. Mom would very much like to be able to contact her family members and friends by email but your computer has been out of order for several months. She has mentioned it to the people there but nothing has been done, so I told her I would contact you. Please let me know when it is back in working order. Thank you. Judith Chandler
