Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Guildwood in Scarborough 

At Chartwell Guildwood, life is full of possibilities. Inspired by our natural setting and full complement of optional activities and amenities, our residents love to learn, create, move, play, laugh, listen, and connect in so many personalized ways, using our built-in opportunities and amenities as a springboard to the retirement they deserve.  

We offer a selection of activities from our LiveNow enrichment program that includes many meaningful experiences, all of which are based on the six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational. For example, our signature Rhythm ‘N’ Moves and FitMinds classes are purposefully designed to engage, inform, entertain, and challenge you!

Participate in our engaging activities 

Designing the day your way at Chartwell Guildwood is as easy as slipping into our warm pool, or sipping on a cocktail by the stunning granite and glass fireplace in our lounge.  Consider the following activities that could be on offer: you may wish to stay fit in a chair yoga or osteo-fit class, or exercise your analytic brain in a chess drop-in, FitMinds workshop, or discussion group. Never worry about lost luggage in one of our armchair travel journeys, or relax with a furry friend during a companion pet visit. Think about having fun during Happy Hour, laughing some more at a movie night, or enjoying entertainment from a local musical group. Join a walk out on our beautiful grounds, or down to the lake. And when you want to be out and about, there’s always a regular outing to shopping, a park, event, or attraction. Regardless of your choice, you are free to do as much—or as little—as you wish, creating the schedule that is exactly right for you.

Explore our variety of on-site amenities 

Chartwell Guildwood was designed and built with today’s active and independent seniors in mind, with amenities that connect people to nature and each other in creative and inspiring ways. Notice how we incorporate living walls, natural wood accents, and the soft, earthy hues of our surrounding forests, skies, and water into every corner of the residence. You’ll feel both inspired by your surroundings and connected to them. Imagine floating in our heated pool, practicing the keyboard in our music room, working out in our state-of-the-art fitness studio, or laughing with fellow residents during a film night in our movie theatre. Can you see yourself learning how to create beautiful art in our multi-function room, or discussing your book club novel in the library? And how does Happy Hour in the lounge sound or finishing a puzzle with your grandchildren in the kids’ zone? And at the end of the day, you may simply just wish to enjoy a tranquil moment or two beside our soothing aquariums.
