Lead an elegant and fulfilling lifestyle in the heart of The Glebe. 

Chartwell Lord Lansdowne Retirement Residence is in The Glebe, a city lover’s paradise where lovely natural surroundings like ponds and the historic canal meet convenient services meant to enrich your retirement. We offer independent living and assisted living services in an elegant setting you’ll be proud to call home. 

Home, with benefits

There’s no denying that our residence has curb appeal, but when you walk through our doors, you’ll be struck by just how attractive our home is. Our aesthetic is timeless and traditional—rich wood paneling, comfortable and tasteful furnishings, with large portraits that speak to Ottawa’s celebrated history—and you’ll see our attention to detail shine through in small touches like fresh floral arrangements. That same polish extends to our suites, which have big windows that let in an abundance of natural light and provide great neighbourhood views. You’ll love waking up in the morning, pouring yourself a cup of coffee and watching the city come alive from the comfort of your well-appointed suite. 

Life in The Glebe

It’s no surprise that many people choose to live with us because of our sought-after location in The Glebe, a beloved Ottawa neighbourhood with an abundance of charm and character. Surrounded by heritage homes, as well as a variety of restaurants, farmer’s markets, arts and culture venues, Lansdowne Park, and even the city’s most active sports stadium across the street, it is a true example of both a traditional as well as vibrant setting. We have one of the best walking scores in the city—and is it any wonder when you can simply cross the street and find yourself at Lansdowne Park, or take a short stroll three blocks away along Bank Street and find yourself taking in views of the Rideau Canal? We also have direct access to a seniors’ centre and long term care home next door. 

Chartwell Lord Lansdowne offers a host of convenient services, including delicious dining, leisure opportunities and outings, and personalized support—all of which can amount to the retirement years you’ve always desired.
