Care Assistance for Seniors in Ontario

Seniors in Ontario who opt to live in a retirement community over receiving in-home care can enjoy peace of mind knowing that many senior living residences provide what is known as a continuum of care setting and services that allow you or a loved one to age in place without the need for a move.

  • What is Care Assist?

    Chartwell’s Care Assist Program is a seamless range of health and wellness or care services that are available in a retirement residence; services which adapt to your uniquely changing needs over time. The major benefit? Older adults maintain their independence for as long as possible, enjoying an active and social retirement lifestyle and can age in place with the help of supportive services too, helping to avoid a further move or the need for a long-term care setting.
