Care & Support Options at Chartwell Glacier Ridge in Thunder Bay
Chartwell Glacier Ridge is focused on independent living for seniors. Active seniors who are contemplating downsizing often discover that an independent living lifestyle is the ideal fit when you’re ready to let go of dealing with grocery shopping, meal preparation and cleanup, and household chores. Instead, you can live a relaxing and social lifestyle doing what truly matters with your time and energy: spending both with the people and activities you love most.
With independent living at Chartwell Glacier Ridge, you can take advantage of our tasty, well-prepared, and nutritious meals and snacks, scheduled leisure programs and activities, and well-kept amenities whenever you like. Or you could skip the planned activities and just drop by for informal get-togethers with your neighbours. Care services are equally flexible. Pick and choose from an à la carte array of care services as you need them. These care services include assistance with your day-to-day routine, such as getting ready in the morning or evening, bathing, dressing, and medication management, all in the comfort and privacy of your own suite. Weekly housekeeping is included as well to keep your private suite tidy and fresh.
