Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Glacier Ridge in Thunder Bay

Our residents appreciate having a variety of activities and amenities right on site and just steps outside their suite door at Chartwell Glacier Ridge. Designed by our friendly, creative staff, our recreational programs are an ideal way to foster your well-being at all levels: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, vocational, and spiritual. As always, your involvement is completely up to you, according to your abilities and interests. Some residents like to plan their day to take advantage of scheduled gatherings that pique their curiosity. Of course, another benefit of retirement living is simply dropping by an informal social gathering with your peers: you’re always in good company.
