“My parents were lucky enough to reside at this location for over 2 years. The staff went over and above to ensure that their care and well being was looked after. I cannot express our gratitude to everyone there. A wonderful home for your parent or parents. ”  – Wendy Hayes

"Our mother has been a resident at James St Retirement Residence for the past 4 years. She is extremely happy and healthy living there and has been very well taken care of during these challenging times. The residence is clean, well maintained and cheerful. I can not say enough good things about the staff and the management. They go above and beyond to make the residence an active and welcoming place to live and visit. As a family, we could not be happier to know that our mom is living in such a lovely place.” -  Susan Wilson

“I would like to thank management and all the staff at James Street Chartwell for their dedication to creating a wonderful environment for my Mom, who moved into Chartwell two years ago. Even now, during COVID, they work tirelessly to ensure my mom is healthy , happy and safe.” – Allyson Kinsley

My Mother spent the last almost two years of her life at James Street. Her room was pleasant and she was happy there. The food was also very good and on occasion great (I've eaten there). All of the staff I met were pleasant, friendly and helpful. My Sister and I live far away. if we had a concern about her whereabouts, we would call the residence to see if she had signed out or if someone needed to check on her, which they did without complaint. When (not if) power outages occur, the staff walks food up even to the second and third floor to ensure the residents are fed. If a resident is not capable of going to the dining room for meals, tray service is available for a small additional cost. In the last six months of her life, her health deteriorated rapidly. James Street is not a nursing home, but the staff there went above and beyond to do what they could to take care of her. (There weren't any openings at nearby nursing homes). I regret that I did not have the opportunity to see staff members as we left for the last time to say Thank You  - John Bendixsen

"The simple act of caring is heroic." - Edward Albert
