Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Pickering City Centre in Pickering  

At Chartwell Pickering City Centre, we offer a dynamic and supportive retirement lifestyle that is also fulfilling and purposeful. Our goal is to help you lead the engaging and active life you desire. We do this through our signature LiveNow life enrichment program, in which activities are based on promoting the six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational. Staff are there to empower you to pursue the activities you love—and offer different ways to connect with people who may share similar interests and outlooks. You’ll find a full social calendar on offer, as well as a range of amenities designed to make it easy to follow your interests and passions.

Participate in our engaging activities 

Residents at Chartwell Pickering City Centre are highly engaged, sometimes leading activities in our life enrichment program that they have an expertise or interest in. This makes the residence a vibrant place to call home, where there’s always something going on. Can you see yourself joining a friendly game of Bridge or Cribbage, or enjoying some fun and challenging brain exercises in a FitMinds session? Perhaps you’d like to keep limber in a physio-fit class or dance it out at Rhythm ‘N’ Moves? Residents love learning something new in a “learn to play pool” class, or showing their creative or culinary talents in an art class or baking get-together. They are musical, loving sing-alongs and visits from local entertainers, and they are dancers too—senior prom anyone? If you enjoy being social, there are many opportunities to connect, from an ice cream social to an outing to Ribfest in the Park.
