When Nav helped move her aunt to Chartwell Renaissance Retirement Residence in September 2022, she wasn’t quite sure how she would settle in — yet within weeks, her concerns proved unfounded.

“The amazing staff at Chartwell Renaissance have made the transition for my aunt Svenja to her new home quite an enjoyable experience,” she tells. “The community is clean and very inviting. The staff are very compassionate towards all of the residents. After a week, my aunt Svenja says that is already feels like home.”

As society gradually shifts back to pre-pandemic norms, older adults who have delayed a decision to downsize or seek a living arrangement that provides more freedom from the responsibilities of home ownership have begun to consider their options again.

There is no denying that for many, the prospect of less time and energy spent on home and property maintenance and more opportunities to socialize, pursue interests, or try something new have endured, if not increased because of the past two years.

A key benefit of life in a retirement residence is having consistent access to staff who are devoted to helping seniors live worry-free. “The staff are friendly, welcoming and incredibly patient,” says John, resident since 2019. “The servers bring us comfort, warmth, humour and the occasional hug.”

“The recreational manager has been a great help to my grandfather’s exercise and physical conditioning. Nothing but the best,” agrees Colton.
