Relax with a refreshing beverage in our fireside lounge, while enjoying the musical interludes provided on our grand piano or take a leisurely stroll around our beautifully landscaped grounds, with numerous gardens and patios for your enjoyment.

The Wellington provides all the comforts of home, and a whole lot more. We offer a variety of accommodation styles from bachelor, studio & one-bedroom suites with spacious closets and kitchenettes…all at affordable pricing.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

The Wellington is strikingly beautiful in a first impression. The brightly lit, welcoming portico feels immediately like a place where we want to spend time. The lobby also has a mezzanine, which houses the library, and a tea room, compactly situated in the corner beside the welcome desk. Further inside, impressive features include a friendly games room, a hairdressing station, and more. The gazebo and gardens outside are accessible greenspaces ideal for friendly gatherings.

What truly makes or breaks any retirement home, though, is the people and the community they create together. As an established community, the staff and administration are well-experienced in building a quick rapport with newcomers. We’re struck by the obvious care that staff have for each community member and for each other. People working here bring a palpable enthusiasm to their work and they’re obviously supportive of those in their care.
