Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Harwood in Ajax

You can choose from a full and engaging roster of optional activities and amenities at Chartwell Harwood. All of our life enrichment experiences promote the six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational. What kind of a day would you like today? Perhaps you’ll curl up with a good book in our cozy library and puzzle room. Or break a sweat in an exercise class which takes place in our well-equipped fitness room. There is always a challenging brain games class, or maybe you would prefer to visit a friend using our courtesy van. Later on, you may look forward to a cocktail or mocktail at Happy Hour and remember to board our accessible bus tomorrow to cheer on the Blue Jays or applaud a show at the theatre.

All of our amenity spaces at Chartwell Harwood are easily accessible for residents to meet and socialize. It’s also easy to pause and admire the lovely garden views and step outside to enjoy the birds in our beautiful, peaceful gardens. All of these spaces provide the perfect backdrop for our activity calendars. Can you see yourself catching a classic comedy in our movie theatre, making gingerbread cookies with your grandkids in our country kitchen, or perhaps enjoying a cider in our pub? Our activity room is the space to explore your creative side, and our hair salon means you will always look your best.
