Our Perspective

How we see Chartwell Wescott Retirement Residence

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. They focus on what makes senior living great: creating excellent meals, continuing fun activities, offering diligent service, and compassionate personal care. You can also tell they love working here. You’ll see many who evidently 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.

What residents and their loved ones say about Chartwell Wescott Retirement Residence in reviews.

Margaret Visconti, family member

"I was at Chartwell Wescott visiting my grandmother. She had an issue. The new maintenance manager fixed the problem in no time. He was friendly kind and knowledgeable, even after my grandmother asked him the same question 8 times. Everyone is exceptional and friendly. A shoutout to the new maintenance manager and all your team for really making a lady feel special."

"Our folks moved into Chartwell Wescott in the Fall of 2023. It is an Assisted Living residence for seniors with a full dining room where a delicious meal awaits you in the dining room for lunch or dinner. If you wish, you can enjoy a cup of coffee and pastry in the bistro. Our family is so happy and grateful that Mom and Dad are enjoying their time at Wescott. We feel very comfortable that they are in a safe and caring community they call home. The staff are awesome, very friendly, and extremely..."

Jennifer Ovelson, family member

"I toured Chartwell Wescott last week, and was so impressed and surprised. Tucked inside a really nice neighborhood, looks brand spanking new, and for what is all included like meals and housekeeping, it’s a lot cheaper than some, shall we say, lesser accommodations elsewhere in the city.

I have already made a little pitch to..."
