Care & Support Options at Chartwell Pickering City Centre in Pickering 

Are you an independent, active, or semi-active senior or couple looking for a dynamic, engaging lifestyle where you can age in place? Independent living at Chartwell Pickering City Centre empowers you to enjoy retirement—and life—on your own terms. Some seniors mistakenly believe that “independent” is the opposite of “supportive,” but in fact, at our residence we combine independent living with optional and flexible care options that actually help you to retain your independence. The result is a seamless transition, should you require more support as you age.
