Care & Support Options at Chartwell Collegiate Heights in Sault Ste. Marie
At Chartwell Collegiate Heights, we are dedicated to independent living for older adults. If you’re an active or semi-active senior who would like to simplify and downsize, independent living with the option to add care if you need it may be just right for you. Here, you can enjoy delicious, healthy, and well-prepared daily meals and your choice of life enrichment activities and amenities. Casual socializing is easy when you’re living in a welcoming residence among peers who share your interests: you can drop by a friendly get-together or join organized activities. The independent living lifestyle is an ideal option if you prefer to have a leisurely and engaged retirement, spending your time with the people and pastimes you enjoy most, rather than coping with regular and unexpected household chores and maintenance, grocery shopping, and meal preparation and cleanup. Weekly housekeeping is part of your private suite plan, so you can count on our staff to keep your space inviting and tidy for you and your visitors.
Care Services available
One of the most reassuring aspects of independent living at Chartwell Collegiate Heights is you can take advantage of our care services if you need some support. Care services are flexible, so you can select them from an à la carte menu as you need them or bundle them into an all-inclusive package. Choose from options that include help with your daily living activities, such as getting ready in the morning or evening, bathing, dressing, and medication management, all in the comfort and privacy of your own suite. One of the unique care services our residents appreciate is companion care—such as playing cards or enjoying a cup of tea together—to enhance your social well-being.
You and your family can also have peace of mind knowing that there is an on-site nurse at Chartwell Collegiate Heights, as well as 24/7 access to friendly support staff to assist you should you need it. What if your health and wellness needs change? Well, so do our services. For instance, if your health status evolves or you’re recuperating from an illness or surgery, our services can adapt temporarily or for the long term. You can also access trusted visiting health providers such as our blood pressure clinic, mobility clinic, pharmacy services, and lab services.
We’re here to help you or a loved one understand your options and which service level will be the right fit for you. Our Health & Wellness Manager will also conduct an assessment before you move in to ensure you’re receiving the right level of care for your unique needs and preferences.
