Care & Support Options at Chartwell Héritage in Vanier 

Chartwell Héritage offers two appealing options for seniors who want to make the most of retirement living. First, we offer independent living suites with optional care services for seniors who would appreciate dining, housekeeping and other services to make life easier and more comfortable. Second, we have dedicated seniors’ apartments with flexible service options for older adults who want to downsize and not bother with household maintenance any longer. These two lifestyle options mean you can personalize your support to fit your goals and wallet. Want to do your own cooking and join your peers for the occasional meal with us? Interested in three daily meals served in our dining room? Do you require an all-inclusive package of care services or prefer à la carte options? At Chartwell Héritage, you can opt for customized services that fit your unique needs and lifestyle so you can live exactly as you wish.  

  • Seniors’ apartments

    Active and independent older adults who are ready to move beyond the many responsibilities of home ownership and maintenance find that our seniors’ apartments suit them perfectly. Safe and well-designed, our apartments come with a full kitchen, modern security features, and a call bell system to reach our bilingual staff. You have access to the full range of optional life enrichment programs and amenities available in the adjacent retirement residence. The choice is always yours when it comes to selecting the personalized services you need, whether you’d prefer to prepare your own meals or choose a meal package so you can dine with your neighbours. You can also opt to add outdoor parking, personal laundry and housekeeping services, and support like foot care, physiotherapy, or a blood pressure clinic.
