Our support services—delivered by friendly, long-standing staff—are there to provide you with the peace of mind that we can accommodate your changing needs over time so you can comfortably age in place.
We recently added three storeys of brand-new independent living suites in one-bedroom layouts to our retirement community! The new wing of our residence features brand-new amenities, including a fireplace lounge, bistro for snacks and beverages, and a lovely outdoor terrace.
Seniors’ apartments and townhomes
Ideal for active and independent older adults who do not require care support, our seniors’ apartments feature full kitchens, a valued feature for individuals who still desire to cook for themselves. You have the flexibility to choose from one- or two-bedroom apartments, all featuring well-appointed layouts, and can also enjoy à la carte meal options at an additional fee.
Uniquely, we also offer seniors’ townhomes on the grounds that are approximately 1,100 sq. ft. in size and include two spacious bedrooms, a full kitchen, and in-suite laundry facilities. Ideal for recent downsizers, couples, or individuals looking for more personal space, townhome residents also enjoy their own private driveway, garage, and patio, as well as monthly housekeeping.

Senior living in Lively
We love our great location in the community of Lively, part of the Greater Sudbury area. Our newly renovated retirement residence is just south of the Trans-Canada Highway, so it’s easy for you and your friends and family to get around. Surrounded by natural beauty but close to convenient local amenities like pharmacies, banks, walking trails, restaurants, and liquor stores, it’s not surprising that Lively is a sought-after place to live. The city of Sudbury is a 15–20-minute drive away.
Things to do in Lively
No need to choose between natural beauty and a dynamic small city: you can enjoy both! Practice your swing at the Lively Golf Course or the Stone Hill Golf Course. The nearby 2-km Hillfield Trail offers wheelchair accessible sections and plenty of scenic appeal. The Fielding Bird Sanctuary, a five-minute drive from Chartwell Meadowbrook, is an excellent birdwatching and wildlife viewing spot. Look to nearby Sudbury for shopping at the New Sudbury Centre and interesting venues and events. Check out live theatre, comedy, and musical performances at Yes Theatre and Fraser Auditorium. Love the art world? Visit La Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, the Art Gallery of Sudbury, and Place des Arts du Grand Sudbury to discover emerging and established artists. The Sudbury Community Arena and Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex are good venues to watch hockey, curling, and other sports. The well-kept Bell Park Walkway along the waterfront of Ramsey Lake in the heart of the city is another popular destination.

There are many important factors to consider when trying to find the best retirement community for yourself or a loved one.
