Care & Support Options at Chartwell Gibson in North York
At Chartwell Gibson, our focus is on independent living for seniors. An independent living lifestyle is ideal for active older adults who want to simplify and downsize while still enjoying their independence. Instead of dealing with grocery shopping, making meals, and home ownership and maintenance, choosing independent retirement living means you can opt for a social lifestyle where you spend time with the people and doing the activities you love while our team takes care of chores. Take advantage of tasty, nutritious meals three times a day and our planned social programs and activities as you wish. Of course, connecting informally is also easy when you live in a residence where everyone has reached a similar life stage, and shared amenity spaces are designed for socializing. With just 70 suites, we offer an inviting, homey atmosphere where you easily get to know your neighbours and our friendly staff.
