Delmanor Glen Abbey

Our Perspective


This place is obviously ideal if you love golfing or want to settle close to family in Oakville, but there are also a variety of onsite quiet places that allow residents time for personal space. These include The Greenhouse Potting Room, the Serenity Spa and personal massage facilities. The community's excellent ambassador program helps new community members feel right at home. Residents we've spoken to enjoy Glen Abbey's gardening activities outside, and exercise room inside, among other amenities. It's an elegant experience, in both shared spaces and the privacy of your suite.

Like other Delmanor retirement communities, Glen Abbey makes exceptional the rule. This community treats residents like royalty, respectful of the fact that people have often spent their lives serving others. For staff here, working in a retirement residence is an opportunity to give back to those people, the mature adult residents who move here. Staff and residents clearly enjoy each other's company here.

Aside from its proximity to the world-renowned golf course, there's a wealth of arts and culture in the area of this community, including the Oakville Museum, Oakville Galleries, and the Centre for the Performing Arts. This community features a wide variety of fun and interesting outings for residents to partake in.

General Manager's Message
Charmaine Pelletier

I have worked in the retirement living industry for 20 years, spending most of my career as a Culinary Services Manager. I first joined Delmanor in 2004. I was part of the opening team at Delmanor Wynford and was promoted to General Manager at Delmanor Glen Abbey in 2018.

Situated close to the Glen Abbey golf course and Monastery Bakery, we are nestled in Oakville’s quiet neighbourhood community. People tend to choose Delmanor Glen Abbey because they like our intimate low rise  building. When they enter the community, they are greeted by a friendly team and happy residents. Those who live here are always eager to talk and engage with future residents about the community.

We have a great parent company in Tridel and their family values are at the core of what makes Delmanor a special place to call home. Come and live The Delmanor Experience for yourself.
