Care & Support Options at Chartwell Hilldale in Thunder Bay

Our small, friendly community at Chartwell Hilldale is centred around independent living for older adults. This means that it’s an excellent lifestyle choice for seniors who are independent, active, and seeking a simple and satisfying way of life after downsizing. If you no longer relish the chores, responsibilities, and upkeep of being a homeowner, including grocery shopping, meal planning, cooking, and cleaning, consider the benefits of independent living at a retirement residence. Here, you can enjoy a relaxing and social retirement connecting with your loved ones and your favourite pursuits. We take care of preparing and serving tasty, nutritious meals, you’ll have amenities you won’t find elsewhere, and you can join on-site activities and casual social gatherings as you wish.

For care and support, you can choose from a menu of care services as needed. These services provide you with help from our professional, compassionate staff right in the comfort and privacy of your own suite.

Weekly housekeeping is included in your suite rental, so your home will be tidy and inviting for you and your guests. You can also make selections from a variety of other optional services, including linen service, transportation services, hair salon services and more.
