You know a retirement community is excellent when employees tell you that they like their job because they enjoy being with the seniors in their care. Governors Walk’s design around a historic monastery hints at the discipline and compassion of the care offered here. Indeed, there seems to be a good spirit that flows through this place. It’s communal living with heart and soul.
The Governors Walk experience begins with its location in the established New Edinburgh neighbourhood and tree-lined Stanley Ave., practically backing onto Stanley Park and the Rideau River. The elegance and class of the interior is striking, too. Those external signs are superseded by the depthful care offered by Governors Walk staff.
The care here caters to seniors’ needs, focused on a whole-person approach. Health services offered are multifarious. We think it’s especially tasteful the way they present continence care right on their website. The Medication management and care services are included where needed, of course, but it’s presented alongside a focus on healthy living.
These factors combine to make this place a wellness experience. Programming includes mind, body and soul, with each aspect well-accounted for by activities available within this community. Alongside more prosaic things like card games, Bingo and Bocce ball, life-enriching events include outings to local theatres and museums, as close to Ottawa’s heart as this community is.
In December 2021 I started my fourth year at Governors Walk. Every day I feel fortunate to live in such a wonderful home where the staff at all levels is caring, sensitive and competent. My suite as well as all common areas are kept clean, the dining room is attractive and the food well above average. My husband was bedridden for 2 months and died in September 2021. The care and affection he received were exceptional. I don't think I could find a better place to live.—Louise D, resident
I have lived at Governors Walk for 4 years and love it. The food is great and the staff are very helpful. They are always warm and caring. I highly recommend Governors Walk.—Irene Bent, resident
My aunt has been at this residence for years. She loves the food and friendly atmosphere.—Suzanne Spragge, family member
