quick tour

Not enough information to rate some of the questions: staff, food and care etc.
The location is ideal and central to local shops along Granville and 12th.
The suite is very basic and cooking is not allowed.

Thank you for your feedback .
We would welcome you and your family to come and enjoy our home cooked meals and feel the genuine warmth of our staff and see all the very best of our facility.
Chalmers is a long established non for profit assisted living facility and strives to be the most cost effective community in a very expensive city for seniors.
