Activities & Amenities at Chartwell Avondale in Leslieville

At Chartwell Avondale, our active and social activities empower you to take time to focus on the people and pursuits that are most important to you in your retirement years. We created our signature LiveNow life enrichment program to comprise experiences that promote all six dimensions of wellness—physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and vocational—for that very reason.

You’ll find numerous planned and spontaneous opportunities in our daily activity calendar to learn, laugh, be entertained, get creative, feel good, and be both challenged and inspired. Because our residence is small, you’ll get to know residents and staff, making it easy to find someone to share an interest. Imagine yourself on a summer night sitting on our rooftop patio, enjoying a drink with fellow residents as the sun sets—this is definitely a place to call home!

Participate in our engaging activities

At Chartwell Avondale, our program of activities is full—and fulfilling—much more than just a daily calendar of activities, events, and outings: it’s about giving you built-in opportunities to find what brings you satisfaction and purpose.

You could learn something new at a tech talk session, or in our popular FitMinds class. Stay fit at Tai Chi, with our walking club, or at a gentle exercise class. Exercise your creative brain in our craft corner or knitting classes. Or get involved in our photography project. We have onsite worship services and hymn songs too. There is always a guest speaker, or talented musician or two stopping by. And you can’t help but have a laugh or two at our pub nights and movie get-togethers. Leslieville has so much to offer, so you will also find us on our shuttle, going shopping and visiting the local farmers’ market, for example.
