Our peaceful residential neighbourhood in the heart of Priory Park is highly sought after, as we’re within walking distance of a variety of retailers, restaurants, cafés, pharmacies, and parks.

We offer an abundance of contemporary on-site amenities that act as an extension of your private suite. When you aren’t enjoying a delicious meal in our open-concept dining room—the social hub of our home—you may find yourself getting your hair done in our salon, taking your morning paper and coffee to our solarium, enjoying a game of Bridge or billiards in our games room, or perhaps attending an exercise or FitMinds class. Our residence also boasts beautiful outdoor space that will lure you into the sunshine, including manicured walking paths and a lush patio where our residents love to gather for activities, casual conversation or to simply enjoy some fresh air.
A lifestyle designed for worry-free living
In addition to three freshly prepared meals a day, weekly housekeeping and laundry services that give you the time and energy to enjoy life to the fullest, we offer a variety of social, intellectual and fitness experiences that you can choose to participate in at will, including charitable initiatives for our local community. If you require some additional daily support, you can also choose from a selection of personalized care services, such as medication management, assistance with your morning or evening routine or other personal services to make your life more comfortable and much more. Furthermore, we uniquely offer a physiotherapy program to help you build strength and feel your best!
It’s our people, however, who make Chartwell Wellington Park a truly inviting place to call home. Our longstanding staff—many of whom have been with us over ten years—are skilled, friendly, and dedicated to making your life happier, healthier and more fulfilling.
The dining experience
Our open, spacious dining room is the hub of Chartwell Wellington Park, where our residents gather to enjoy thoughtfully crafted meals. Our food service staff work diligently to create healthy, delicious offerings, and our thoughtful dining room staff make sure every meal is presented with care.

Activities and amenities
We know everyone has different interests. That’s why we have so many optional programs to explore at Chartwell Wellington Park. If you like staying active, you might use the exercise equipment in our fitness room or take a Rhythm ‘n’ Moves class to learn a fun, choreographed routine. Others may choose a low-key day, starting with coffee in the sunny solarium followed by a quiet, reflective afternoon of reading, painting, and strolling along our walking paths. If you’re feeling social, you might connect over euchre or billiards in our games room, by swapping know-how with fellow gardeners or on day trips to local attractions. The choice is up to you.
