Chartwell Colonel Belcher Retirement Residence

1945 Veteran's Way NW, Calgary, Alberta T3B 5Y7
“Convenient services and friendly staff empower you to craft the active and vibrant retirement you desire.”

Staff and residents laughing together at the reception desk; ice cubes jangling in a cocktail shaker in the pub, a game playing on the big screen; billiard balls clacking and darts hitting their target in the games room; newspapers crinkling and cups of coffee steaming in the front lounge—there’s a hum of activity as soon as you walk through the doors of Chartwell Colonel Belcher Retirement Residence, where residents and staff alike are always there to warmly welcome guests. Located in the pretty Parkdale neighbourhood of northwest Calgary, you’ll find a strong sense of friendship and community are woven through the fabric of daily life at our dynamic residence.

An active and vibrant community atmosphere

The atmosphere at Chartwell Colonel Belcher is unlike any other retirement residence in the area—and that’s due to the independent, active and downright fun individuals who live with us. We may be a large residence, but we are a tight-knit community, thanks to staff and residents having created a warm and friendly culture where everyone looks out for one another and takes pride in their home. Here, you are empowered with the choice and freedom to craft the lifestyle you want, which is why we have so many resident-led activities, including the operation of our pub—“The Mad Trapper”—the organization of our library, dinner parties, speaker series and numerous volunteer opportunities spearheaded by passionate individuals. We also enjoy an active Resident’s Counsel and have a wonderful Ambassador’s program that helps to welcome newcomers. Our food service team even involves residents when making their daily menus!

Our modern and comfortable amenities serve as the backdrop to all of the activity. Strike up a friendly competition in the games room overlooking our pretty dining room; settle on the terrace with a book, or simply to watch the world go by; put your green thumb to the test in our raised garden plots; partake in Happy Hour in the pub; or join friends for a pint on the patio around the fire pit—it’s easy to make new friends with so many pleasing ways to spend your day.

Making wishes come true

Our residents are committed to making a positive difference in the local community, and our staff are equally committed to making the lives of our residents better. They do so through our Moments That Matter program—a signature program that fulfills special “Moments” for residents to help them accomplish their dreams and participate in activities that make them happier—and by nominating residents for “Wishes” through our charitable partnership with Wish of a Lifetime Canada. We are very proud of the amount of Wishes and Moments that have been granted to our residents and have an entire wall of the residence devoted to celebrating these occasions and the stories of our deserving residents. An epic trip to Thailand to meet his great-grandchildren for the first time…a pretty drive and first-ever taste of a Tim Horton’s coffee…travelling to Niagara Falls to honour the memory of a spouse …some truly amazing things have happened at Chartwell Colonel Belcher.

Delicious dining options, housekeeping, 24-hour emergency response—these valuable services are why many of our residents choose retirement living, but not why they choose Chartwell Colonel Belcher. It’s our uniquely vibrant and independent atmosphere, where residents can enjoy life to the fullest.
