At Carlingwood Retirement Community, we’re dedicated to ensuring our residents’ physical, mental and emotional health. We take every necessary step to make sure you’re safe and well cared for. We also go the extra mile to provide you with the essentials to your everyday life.
Our holistic approach to your well-being is what enables us to offer you unparalleled service.
The Carlingwood Retirement Community wellness centre is staffed by our attentive, experienced healthcare team, which is available to address any questions or concerns you may have about your health and nutrition. The staff is also ready to respond quickly and effectively in the case of a medical emergency.
Our team includes on-site healthcare staff who are present 24/7. We’re proud to offer the services of a resident doctor and foot care nurse, both of whom make regular trips to the building, as well as visiting laboratory services for residents whose health must be carefully monitored. With our outstanding access to medical support and our proximity to the Queensway Carleton and Ottawa Civic hospitals, you can rest assured knowing that assistance is available around the clock.
Our dining area offers a charming environment for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and gives you the option of choosing what to eat and where. When the weather cooperates, you can take your meals on the outdoor patio, basking in the sun and enjoying food al fresco. Otherwise, you’re always welcome inside the elegant dining room.
You’ll be treated to a selection of home-style meals made from scratch by our talented in-house chef, who uses only the finest and freshest ingredients. The menu is prepared to be both nutritious and delicious, including options for those who have special dietary needs.
We also offer a private dining room that residents can reserve for family and friends, to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions.
At Carlingwood Retirement Community, you’re always free to come and go as you please, taking part in outside community activities in the neighbourhood and throughout the city. It’s also our pleasure to provide you with a wide range of planned group outings, should you wish to participate. Our full-time activities director is dedicated to organizing regular trips to shopping centres and grocery stores, to which you will travel in our accessible bus, as well as special outings such as picnics, sightseeing tours, boat trips and theatre visits.
For days when you want to stay put and enjoy the comforts of home, we offer plenty of in-house activities, including crafts, screenings in the movie theatre and gatherings in the main lounge, as well as bridge and other card games. Our superior facilities include an indoor saltwater pool that you can use as you see fit—for a leisurely swim or an invigorating aquafit class. As well, Carlingwood Retirement Community features a state-of-the-art greenhouse, where you can enjoy nature and sunlight in a warm, cozy environment, even during the winter.
We aim to provide everything you need for your safety, comfort and enjoyment, so you can choose the experience you want on any given day.
