Amica at Westboro Park’s location in Westboro Village is perfect for a person who likes to walk, shop, and be part of one of the more historic and interesting neighbourhoods in Ottawa - all just 15 minutes west of the downtown core and a few minutes from the Ottawa River. Residents are able to walk to local stores, banks, and coffee shops in one direction, take a stroll through the historic Maplelawn Gardens on the other, or stroll along the Ottawa River Parkway. On Saturdays, from late May until late October, there is also a Farmer’s Market set up right across the street. Overall a great location to help keep our residents active and independent.


Our modern suites are available as studios, alcoves, 1-bedrooms, 1 bedrooms + den, and 2-bedrooms, with a variety of layouts and sizes offered in each style. All are equipped with a kitchenette including a microwave and small fridge, a 3 piece bathroom with an oversized walk-in shower complete with safety bars and individual suite controlled heating and air conditioning. The décor is classic, neutral tones which include carpet and window coverings. Suites come with either a generous sized balcony to sit and enjoy the outdoors, or a Juliette balcony.  Either way there are floor to ceiling sliding doors that allow for lots of fresh air and sunshine.

Naturally, our highest concern is for your safety and security.  All suites are equipped with state-of-the-art heat and smoke detectors, and our trained medical staff, security staff and emergency call systems are always in place.

Excellent staff -Good for independent living

The staff are wonderful, personable and helpful without being cloying or condescending. The facilities are very nice as well, including the library and gym and dining area. The pub which doubles as a coffee shop is a nice gathering place. My parents had to move because Amica does not support those needing extra care but the time they spent there was positive.

These reviews are the subjective opinion of the reviewers and not of
