Reviews of Chartwell Wescott Retirement Residence

Gain exclusive insight into life at Chartwell Wescott Retirement Residence. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Chartwell Retirement Residences is dedicated to creating spaces that seniors love to live in and where they thrive. Chartwell Wescott, in the Ambleside neighbourhood of Edmonton, is another strong example of this. When you set eyes on the ultra-modern external decor, know that this is only a preview of the lively vibrant interior, highlighted by a brightly lit, soaring lobby. You’ll love being in this building, and for much more than the decor.

This is a wonderful community made up of residents and staff, very welcoming to newcomers. Staff is often singled out by family and residents in praise for this community. For one example, during the COVID crisis, they kept focus on what makes senior living great: creating excellent meals, continuing fun activities, offering diligent service and compassionate personal care.

Staff here make this a pleasant experience daily. You can tell they love working here. You’ll see many who evidently also like working with and learning from each other. Staff members credit Chartwell Wescott as a positive place to work (and just to be), where people take joy from work, and where there’s good energy. It’s also known as family-friendly, extending to an atmosphere where everyone feels like part of a family.

It’s close to lots of conveniences like grocery stores, shopping, movie theatres, and restaurants. Dining here is best-in-class. Of the many amenities here (including a spa and pool) our personal favourite is the generous outdoor patio. One other aspect of Chartwell Retirement Residences is the extra spaciousness of suites. It’s a wonderful place to be, housekeeping provided, of course. All of this is led by a seasoned general manager whom staff members find inspiring, inspiration that trickles down into everything here.

Sandra Franchuk, family member

Yesterday we celebrated my mother’s birthday in the Country Kitchen at Chartwell Wescott. It was a happy time for her, her family and her friends.

It is so nice to have a place in the residence where this kind of event can happen. So that her friends and acquaintances can be part of it because it’s right there. And her friends are a very important part of her life.
And I didn’t have to find a place to accommodate 35 + people. It was right there waiting for us.

Many thanks to the staff (co-ordinated by Jessica) who made it easy to bring us all together by providing coffee, tea, juices and ice water, plates and utensils, and a warm and welcoming environment.

Wescott is a family oriented place. As a family we are very happy that our mother, grandmother, great grandmother is very happy there.

My mother has been a resident of Chartwell Wescott for a year. Although she initially didn’t wish to move from her own home she quickly found she enjoyed the support from the helpful and kind staff and all the amenities. I have peace of mind knowing she is so happy and well cared for. Chartwell Wescott is a lovely residence with so much to offer. My only regret is that she didn’t move here earlier.

Eva Cyr, resident

I really enjoy living at chartwell Wescott, it is a warm and friendly atmosphere that makes you feel at home. Wescott offers tasty meals, a library, pool, a gym, crafts, entertainment, and much more! Our programs manager is always keeping us busy with many exciting activities.

Karen Wedman, family member

Thank you to the wonderful staff at Chartwell Westcott. Your facility is beautiful and the people so welcoming. My family appreciated all your help in answering our questions and putting our parents at ease. I believe this facility has everything anyone would want to be in community and feel like life has so much to offer.

Suzi Grimes, family member

I have had occasion to tour this property twice. Once for a memory care placement for my Mom and once for a friend who is considering a Independent Living suite. All staff was vey friendly and welcoming. Cheryl gave a wonderful tour both times. Very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions plus offer information that we had not thought to ask about. Now that mom has lived here a couple of months, I would highly recommend this beautiful home. It has great amenities and the food is really good

Nina Sahasrabuddhe, family member

My mom has lived at Chartwell Westcott for the past year. We moved her in to an apartment during the pandemic and the staff did everything possible to ensure she was safe, happy and had social activity during times of isolation. Since that time, she has become a thriving member of the community at Chartwell - enjoying new friendships and activities. The staff go out of their way every day to ensure the residents are happy and that families feel comforted with the care their family member is given.

D. Plaisier, family member

There is nothing better during this time of Covid 19 then going to sleep each night knowing your parent is in a safe place with excellent care and facilities. Independent living has never looked better and from the day Chartwell Wescott opened, our mother has felt a part of a wonderful community of residents and staff.

Sanja Angelovik, family member

Empathy and care in all [they] do.

Jaymon Mathew, family member

My grandparents have lived in this residence since it opened. They have had a wonderful experience. With Covid the staff have gone above and beyond. From the GM- Laurenn and her weekly communication to families, the daily activities, the smiling front desk, the fabulous chef and servers, the housekeeping dept. Everyone in this building strives to please with a constant smile on their face.

Karen Taylor, family member

It is with much gratitude that I am writing this review of Chartwell Wescott. During these times of uncertainty and isolation the staff at Chartwell have gone above and beyond in every way to provide not only a safe HOME for my parents but also a family away from family. The wonderful meals and meal service, the kind and thorough cleaning staff, the activities coordinators, the maintenance manager, the concierge ladies, the office staff and the exceptional manager are truly worth of recognition. We would highly recommend Chartwell Wescott!
