Senior Living Residence in Gloucester, Ottawa

2645 Innes Road, Ottawa, ON K1B 3J7 View Map

Amica at Bearbrook is located in Ottawa, Ontario, in Blackburn Hamlet, a community with the vibe of a village from an earlier time, surrounded by extraordinary  green spaces, including more than 250 kilometres of hiking trails, and where walking to the pharmacy or the grocery store is a true pleasure. Our retirement home, a haven where comfort is an expectation, embraces the spirit of this community.

Accommodations

Amica at Bearbrook is an outstanding example of how to live well in retirement: Imagine making your away to our Luxura Spa on a Tuesday morning, just minutes from your suite, or deciding that a chilled glass of white wine would be just the thing after a shopping excursion and heading to the Private Ascott Pub - an elevator ride away.

Our accommodations are apartment-style suites, available in either studio or 1-bedroom designs. You will find that all of our suites are decorated using a neutral palette that complements any furniture arrangement – from rustic to modern to eclectic – and that our kitchenettes feature the very best in appliances. Our closets have built-organizers and our bathrooms, walk-in showers.

Your safety is our paramount concern, all suites have strategically placed smoke detectors and the reliable 24-hour SARA Emergency Response System is in place.

Recent Site Visit to Amica at Bearbrook

In search of a retirement home for an uncle, I recently toured Amica at Bearbrook. Unfortunately, the facility does not offer the care level that my uncle currently requires. That said, I was very impressed with the welcoming and warm atmosphere of the home. All the staff I met during my tour were wonderful - very caring and compassionate. They treat the residents like family, and the many residents that I witnessed going about their daily activities appeared very happy.
