Ottawa, Ontario
   

  • This retirement residence is ideal for many reasons but it's well-suited to Ottawa Region seniors who want to remain close to the action, whether that means closeness to the downtown core, to life in the Glebe, or to the suburbs in the west of Ottawa. If your children or grandchildren live in Nepean, Kanata, or anywhere else in west Ottawa, it's ideal. Moving here puts snow shovelling, lawn maintenance and other dull household work into the hands of others.

Residents appreciate the deep familiarity they have with people serving them. Staff readily remember names and personal preferences. And because serving staff, nursing staff, and personal support workers have often worked together for years, that also benefits the whole community.

Efficiency and diligent compassion are a hallmark of the staff’s attitude, highlighted when you hear how families talk about this community. Staff bring an old-fashioned work ethic to the care they offer seniors. This community may also appeal to people from Kingston and Ottawa wanting excellent care at rates that are more affordable than similar communities in those cities.

  • Perhaps the best thing about Park Place is the location, so close to downtown Ottawa. There are gardens outside, parks not far away, and the nearby Experimental Farm is a unique part of the community's environment. Not far away, there are shopping centres and restaurants, then the downtown core and the many sights to see and things to do there. People love the very wide range of services that are available both within Park Place and close by.

  • There are many exceptional aspects of this retirement community, including the care offered, the cleanliness and newness of the residence and its suites, and staff's attentive care. Its unique location along the Ottawa River in the quiet suburb of Orleans makes the Promenade an exceptional offering for families searching for Ottawa seniors' care. For example, the serenity of the wooded courtyard, facing the river, adds an extra dimension of excellence to this community.

  • 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.

  • This community is exceptional for its generous selection of suites. There are four different styles of suites to choose from, but all are ideally spacious, complementing the overall beauty and modernity of the building. The views from suites are another wonderful aspect of life here. Some look out on the Rideau River, while others look out over the vibrant main street of the village. It's an ideal destination for people from throughout Ottawa Region who want proximity to the capital but crave the best quality living environment, at prices that are suitably lower than you'll find closer to Ottawa centre.
