Relax, socialize, enjoy
At Chartwell Pinewood, our social and supportive lifestyle is designed to empower you to spend your time and energy on the people and pursuits most important to you in your retirement years. Here, you may find yourself bringing your morning coffee and paper to our light-filled sunroom to begin the day with views of the Ottawa River, or perhaps joining a friend or family member for a wholesome meal in our lively dining room with big windows. We also have a peaceful chapel, as well as a charming courtyard where you can get some fresh air and enjoy nature. How you spend your day is completely up to you!
Belong to a community of friends
You’ll find it’s easy to make friends at our retirement community, as our residents are a welcoming and down-to-earth crowd. You may even make a new acquaintance during one of our many social, fitness or charitable programs on offer, including our very popular Trivia nights, Bingo, and themed dining events. That friendliness also extends to our staff; skilled and caring people whose goal is to make your life happier, healthier, and more fulfilling. They’re here to co-ordinate and deliver our full suite of engaging activities and personalized services in an approach encompassing mind, body, and spirit.
The dining experience
At Chartwell Pinewood, we recognize that an active and independent lifestyle is your goal, where if you choose, you no longer have to worry about shopping for and preparing meals. That’s why our dining experience is so important. Whether you enjoy your meal in our comfortable, spacious dining room, or with friends and family in our private dining room, or in our casual bistro where you can pick up a coffee and freshly prepared snack, you’ll find the same care and attention to detail goes into every aspect of your experience at Chartwell Pinewood.
Activities and amenities
At Chartwell Pinewood, we think of ourselves as a family, and love getting together to chat, keep fit, sing, dance, listen, learn, reflect, worship, and, of course, relax. You’ll find us staying fit during a Rhythm ‘N’ Moves class in our fitness studio. We may be gathering for Happy Hour, or out on a trip to Pembroke Mall. There’s live entertainment tonight, and if the weather’s good tomorrow, we’ll be working in the garden. There’s always time to relax in the bistro with a cup of coffee, or attend a service in the chapel. Yet, while we love being active, we also love being independent, spending the day any way we wish!

Retirement living in Pembroke

Things to do in Pembroke
Nestled in the heart of the Ottawa Valley on the shores of the scenic Ottawa River, Pembroke is a charming small town about an hour-and-a-half drive from Ottawa. A hub that embraces its rich past in the architecture of the historic buildings that grace its lively downtown, you may know Pembroke for its 30 Heritage Murals that dot the city. If you are a walker, you’ll enjoy the Kiwanis Waterfront Trail, and the Champlain Trail Museum and Pioneer Village (next door to Chartwell Pinewood), worth a visit for its 1800s schoolhouse, log house and church.
Pembroke offers a vibrant shopping scene, with local independent fashion and gift boutiques sprouting in the downtown core. You’ll find two malls and power centres to satisfy all other retail needs, including Walmart and Winners. Don’t forget about the equally vibrant restaurant scene: be sure to visit the Whitewater Brewing Company for locally brewed beers and casual dining, not to mention a full range of chain restaurants throughout the town.
