Governor's Walk Retirement Residence - Ottawa, ON has yet not published prices.
Consumers Choice Award 2018 and in past years. was a former monastery/friary in the 1950's but certainly has been upgraded since then. Has 64 residences with parks nearby where they regularly go for picnics also next to the governor generals park. Can easily see the parliament buildings. Located in the Edinburgh community bordering on Vanier. Very quiet neighbourhood with easy access to parkland and waterways . Red Seal chef food looks very good. Large patio deck with lots of space for celebrations, lots of outings and music, community service. NEGATIVE: Since this residence is older many of the rooms have older furnishings. (Cabinets, refrigerators, faucets) slowly they are modifying their rooms but are not opposed to the resident to upgrade themselves. No pool on site.
Very nice facility. Bright spacious studio suites, a lovely dining room, friendly staff, an excellent program of activities for the residents -- I was impressed. The only drawback is that it is a good 45 minutes from where I live; I think that will make it difficult for me to just 'pop' over to see her. I am still thinking about that aspect.
Wonderful atmosphere and very friendly residents. Ground level accommodations not in Mom's favour, but will schedule a trial.
