Villagia in the Glebe Review
480 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa, Ontario, K1S 3N6
Ottawa Region (and eastern Ontario) seniors looking to leave behind tiresome housework and cooking have a beautiful place to go, in the heart of Ottawa. This vibrant Ottawa neighbourhood has a variety of interesting shops surrounded by established homes and local greenspace. The Villagia also features a wealth of onsite attractions including a pub and bar, a spa and beauty salon with a hairdresser, a fitness room, and even a movie theatre.
Treat yourself to the good life in retirement here. There are chef-prepared meals served in the elegant dining room, a Grand Ballroom used for dances and other entertainment, and more deluxe-living features like the indoor swimming pool. Care onsite includes a nurse available round-the-clock, as well as PSWs. There is also help with bathing if required, while care with feeding, dressing and other more delicate tasks can be purchased for a fee.
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.

What people say about this central Ottawa retirement home
Fantastic retirement home with great staff and effective management. The best parts for me are the responsive administration staff and the dining room. Really delicious food thanks to their great cooks and new head chef, and recently they offer even more options at every meal. Wonderful place!
The tour [we had] of the retirement residence was informative. Our impression was positive.
It’s quite friendly here! And I find it’s so convenient, there’s a big mall across the street, there’s a big Loblaws and there’s a drug store, a bank, and everything that I need. You gravitate to people that have the same interests, and you start talking, and there are lots of activities. It’s very comfortable living here.
