Activities & Amenities at Chartwell McConnell in Cornwall 

While the length and breadth of activities and amenities at Chartwell McConnell is long and varied, our programs are less about “keeping busy” and much more about keeping engaged and active on your own terms. All of our activities and amenities are designed to meet the six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational—and are always enjoyable.

Participate in our engaging activities 

Stop by Chartwell McConnell and you’ll be warmly greeted by our bilingual staff, who are also engaged with residents in the many activities on offer. Take a stroll with friends in our walking club, discover your talent in an art class, or rejuvenate in our popular stretch and relaxation class. The nearby casino is a fun outing, and residents look forward to hopping on the Chartwell shuttle for shopping trips at the Brookdale Power Centre. While there is always something interesting and fulfilling going on, you always make your own schedule, choosing to participate how and when you like.

Explore our variety of on-site amenities 

Chartwell McConnell is a community, not just because of the close-knit bond between residents and staff, but because of the many on-site spaces designed to help residents enjoy each activity—and each other—to the fullest. From the activity and games rooms to the library, movie theatre, and walking paths, our residence is designed for people to gather and feel a sense of belonging through planned daily activities and spontaneous get-togethers. 

Join other residents enjoying coffee in our lounge, reading in the library, exercising in the fitness studio, surfing the Internet in the computer room, or making a quick stop at the tuck shop. Stroll our manicured gardens and chat with resident-gardeners about the latest growing tips, or attend mass or an inter-denominational service in our chapel. You’ll soon find that this friendly place feels like home.
