Assisted living in Ottawa

Welcome to peace of mind at Amica The Glebe, where support is always available whenever you need it. Residents who require regular assistance with daily living are best served in private, accessible assisted living suites on a dedicated floor, which are tastefully designed to enable your mobility and independence. Your comfort, care and safety are ensured around the clock by licensed nurses and professional care aides.

Certified wellness staff
While other senior living operators may base their staffing on annual budgets, Amica residences are staffed specifically to meet the actual care needs of our residents. This means that as our residents require more support, we are able to provide it by increasing our teams. It’s as simple as that.

All care needs are overseen by a Director of Wellness – a Registered Nurse selected for their education, experience, clinical background, and expertise working with seniors. A Wellness Coordinator helps organize care services for every resident. Residents and family members alike appreciate knowing that a Registered Nurse is on duty around the clock and that the same friendly, certified aides will be providing your loved ones with assistance every day.

What to expect when you require assistance with daily living
We follow your lead to provide the exceptional service you’d expect from Canada’s leader in premium senior living, including freshly prepared daily meals, housekeeping and maintenance, cleaning and laundry and scheduled transportation. The residence concierge and emergency response pendants offer residents and families a safe and secure environment. Be reassured that you’ll be supported according to your individual preferences, whether you’d like help bathing, getting dressed, managing health issues or moving in and out of your wheelchair or walker. Enjoy a dedicated lounge and dining room plus recreational activities specially designed to support your physical, emotional, social and intellectual well-being. Plus, you’ll benefit from our exclusive Personalized Wellness Plan aimed at helping you get the most from the activities, amenities and services at our senior residence in Ottawa.
