A traditional retirement community offering personalized support in the heart of historic Markham.
Chartwell Rouge Valley is an independent living retirement residence nestled in an historic neighbourhood of Markham backing onto conservation land. Our retirement community shares in the distinct character and ambience of our lovely setting, which includes Markham Heritage Estates around the corner and Markham Museum, considered one of Ontario’s best community museums. Running errands or getting together with friends and family is easy for our residents, as we are steps away from a host of local amenities like shopping, coffee shops, pharmacies, medical clinics, and other convenient health care services.
Our senior living residence is inspired by tradition yet designed with a full complement of contemporary amenities and services. Here, you can choose from spacious studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, as well as benefit from a variety of independent living services, including delicious, prepared meals, housekeeping, and optional care services.
