    Independent living

    Care Services available

    Independent living is an ideal lifestyle option if you are an active, independent senior who wants to downsize, and you appreciate not having to put your efforts into home maintenance and chores. With independent living, you can instead focus on finding purpose in learning, connecting, and enjoying spending time with the people and leisure activities that truly matter to you. Meanwhile, you can enjoy delicious and nutritious meals, amenities and planned and informal activities, according to your preferences. Should you need some assistance, you can also choose from a menu of care services, including medication management or help with your morning or evening routine, right in your private suite. Visiting medical professionals include a massage therapist, physician and physiotherapist.

  • Assisted living

    At Chartwell Westmount, our assisted living lifestyle option is dedicated to helping you with your daily routine so you can devote your energy to the people and recreational programs you most enjoy. In assisted living, you’ll savour three delicious daily meals plus snacks—no shopping, planning or cleanup required! There are also plenty of social outings and events designed to fit your abilities and interests. We provide care services in the privacy of your suite, with options that include an escort to meals and activities, meal assistance, medication management, memory services, help with bathing and dressing in the morning or evening, and much more. Together, we work with you or your family to create a care plan that reflects your particular needs, preferences, and abilities.
