Why now may be the time to consider senior living

When Rhonda began exploring retirement residences in the Thunder Bay area for her mother, she wasn’t sure how her mother would settle in. Her concerns proved unfounded.

When Rhonda began exploring retirement residences in the Thunder Bay area for her mother, she wasn’t sure how her mother would settle in. Her concerns proved unfounded. 

“My mom has only been in Chartwell Isabella for a month, but it has been an incredible month for her," Rhonda said. "She loves it, and we love seeing her thrive in such a positive environment. She has her appetite back and enjoys her meals immensely. The staff have been informative, and she enjoys the education sessions.

"The activities have been awesome. Mom is still talking about the paint night. The cocktails are popular, too. Thank you, Chartwell Isabella, for creating such a beautiful home for our mom and thank you as well for such a seamless transition."

Ever wondered about senior living for yourself or a loved one? Senior living — not to be confused with long-term care — is an excellent choice for older adults and their adult children. Why? Retirement communities provide a convenient, social, and worry-free lifestyle. Here, you or your loved one can focus your time and energy toward life’s joys, while our friendly staff tends to the daily aspects of living that may require support.

Many seniors who choose senior living say they wish they’d moved in years earlier once they settle into their new home, referencing the social community, friendly staff, delicious chef-prepared meals, and variety of optional activities, fitness classes, and outings — just to name a few.

Katie, a current resident of Chartwell Glacier Ridge, concurs. 

"Chartwell Glacier Ridge is a great place for both residents and visitors," Katie said. "The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The residents are offered various recreation activities, including shopping and leisure trips in the city. I highly recommend Chartwell to anyone looking for a friendly and comfortable place for themselves.”

Chartwell has four seniors’ residences in Thunder Bay: Chartwell Isabella, Chartwell Thunder Bay, Chartwell Glacier Ridge, and Chartwell Hilldale.

Chartwell Isabella is in central Vickers Park, a quiet, well-kept neighbourhood with a historical ambience. Chartwell Thunder Bay on Arundel Street is in the Port Arthur neighbourhood of Thunder Bay, located along protected conservation area and Boulevard Lake.

Chartwell Glacier Ridge is found in the heart of Thunder Bay on Jasper Drive near Balmoral Street, not far from Lakehead University. Chartwell Hilldale is also in Thunder Bay’s Port Arthur district, down the street from Dawson Road and the Walmart Supercentre.

“This retirement residence is perfect for my parents. The staff is very friendly and professional at the same time. They definitely care,” says adult child Donna.

“They are attentive and meet the needs of the residents right away, if at all possible. The best move my sisters and I could ever have made. Beautiful building. We are all very happy with our choice with Chartwell Hilldale.”
