Location, location, location
Our residents benefit from an attractive neighbourhood in Uptown Oakville that boasts the best of both worlds: a bustling residential feel with an array of nearby shopping. Just a short walk across the street are grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants, banks, and retailers like Walmart. If you prefer to drive, we offer heated underground parking and transportation services for your convenience.
When you walk through our doors, you’ll be struck by our vibrant atmosphere and the palpable sense of community shared by everyone living and working in our home. Our residents love to socialize during meals and leisure experiences, and often remark on how the open-concept design of our home is easy to navigate and adds to our lively ambiance. Our spacious lobby is always abuzz with activity, as is our modern bistro, where residents stop to chat over a cup of coffee or freshly baked snack.
The dining experience
At Chartwell Oakville, we offer three tempting, varied daily meals as part of your independent living lifestyle, helping you to enjoy your retirement focusing less on making meals and more on the things you want to do. Both our featured and à la carte menus are chock-full of fresh, wholesome, and seasonal ingredients, created with our residents’ palates in mind. Enjoy your meal restaurant-style in our warmly decorated dining room surrounded by friends.
Activities and amenities
Come on in—the living is fine at Chartwell Oakville, where you can feel the vibrant, upbeat atmosphere the minute you step into our spacious, renovated lobby. You’ll see residents and staff in our soaring, light-filled lounge, chatting around the fireplace, perhaps discussing which activities are on offer for the day, or if there is an afternoon shopping outing. What looks interesting to you? Consider joining us for an art class or morning meditation, or a pizza-making demonstration. The walking club is off on a stroll, and the book club is discussing a classic spy thriller. The options are many and varied, and the choice is yours to do as much—or as little—as you please.
