Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

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 Those external signs are superseded by the depthful care offered by Governors Walk staff.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.
