When J.B. helped his parents move to Chartwell Cedarbrooke Retirement Community, he wasn’t sure what to expect; yet, a month in, he was pleasantly surprised by how well their transition to their new home was going.

“We have been constantly amazed at the quality of the care and level of attention the residents receive,” he explains. “Every effort has been made to make them feel at home by all members of staff. Their commitment to providing an environment that supports the physical, emotional and social needs of their residents is truly inspiring.”

As society gradually shifts back to pre-pandemic norms, older adults who have delayed a decision to downsize or seek a living arrangement that provides more freedom from the responsibilities of home ownership have begun to consider their options again.

There’s no denying that for many, the prospect of less time and energy spent on home and property maintenance and more opportunities to socialize, pursue interests, travel or try something new have endured, if not increased because of the past two years.

A key benefit of life in a retirement residence is having consistent access to staff who are devoted to helping seniors live worry-free. “Staff are always so kind and willing to help no matter what. They go above and beyond,” Arley says.

Joanna agrees: “Chartwell Cedarbrooke is a beautiful place to live. The staff are all so friendly and helpful, the food is amazing and everything is so clean!”
