Chapel Heights is the first of its kind in the heart of Niagara offer- ing retirement living for today and onsite care for tomorrow. Wellness and specialized support programs for our independent seniors as well as assist- ed living and enhanced care is being offered for residents along with optimum amenities, under one roof and all on 4.7 acres of unparalleled grounds for senior living and opening this summer.
While recent times have been difficult, our seniors can take com- fort in knowing that it’s still a great time to be in Canada. We enjoy the highest life expectancy in the world and we may enjoy vibrant lives at eighty and well into our nineties. Despite this, living alone later in life, is difficult.
Moreover, periods of ill health or medical events, may threaten recovery and longevity and may lead to life changes made by choice or by circumstance.
So researching and planning your future is wise. Then, we can simply make decisions by choice or by cir- cumstance. This is why Chapel Heights may be your answer. We are a resort inspired choice if a vibrant senior community lifestyle is hoped for and a solution by circumstance if care is needed.
Chapel Heights is coming to Niagara Falls in large part due to the experience and leadership behind Pi- oneer Elder Care of St. Catharines, a commit- ted leader for dementia care. Mary Ellen Spear, one of the principals of both companies, said,
“too often she hears heartbreaking stories of couples having to separate because one spouse is experiencing declining health and has to move to a residence with care, while the other spouse is too well to qualify for residency. At Chapel Heights, cou- ples can stay together with the help of support staff, personalized care, nursing twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, and regular visits with our Doctors”. Another example of why we will be so popular by choice and by circumstance.
Speaking of couples, love is in the air. We have heard in many of our inquiry calls from seniors who share they have enjoyed the very best love story of their lives and those who hope that maybe they could enjoy a second chance at love. Well, we too believe in love, and if love blossoms among our residents, we can also host the wedding or the renewal of vows right here in our own historic Chapel.
So, when considering senior living, especially in these current times, look to the experience of the Chapel Heights’ team because comfort and care, safety and se- curity comes to mind first. However, let’s not forget about hospitality and lifestyle opportuni- ties. This is often true for widows and widow- ers or those caring for a loved one. Yes, having the peace of mind that excellence in care assures, but it’s not what makes us who we are, it’s our way of life.
Children of senior residents will tell you they are thrilled when they call their parents and they are never in their suites. For res- idents, there are far more exciting things to think about like the next bridge game, a billiard tourney, swimming in the indoor salt water pool, listening and dancing to live en- tertainment, gardening, or watching a movie with friends in the the- atre. Most importantly for residents, is a sense of autonomy over when to seek out a conversa- tion, and when to take advantage of solitude on their own terms. That should be the ba- sis of deciding where to live at any age, through the lens of possibility. It serves everyone to consider any transition in that light and we are here to highlight the possibilities at Chapel Heights. Finding a residence should not be about finding a place to stay, but finding a place to live, a place to continue living a life with meaning and dignity. We believe everyone deserves no less.
Chapel Heights is en- joying inquiries from prospective residents and their families from all across Niagara, the Golden Horseshoe and large city centres. Giv- en that the hometown of Chapel Heights is Niagara Falls, the most popular leisure destina- tion in Canada, it goes without saying that our residents’ lifestyle will be amazing. Residents’ interests, hobbies, pur- suits and passions will be woven into all of our offerings.
