St. Andrew’s Residence is so much more than just a Retirement Residence!

St. Andrew’s Residence
Our Home

At. St. Andrew’s Residence, our mission is to enrich the lives of seniors across Chatham-Kent.

As a non-profit organization with strong roots in our community for over 50 years, we pride ourselves on the reputation we have created when it comes to providing a home that offers all the care and services our residents require to keep their independence and enjoy retirement living to the fullest.

St. Andrew’s Residence is located in the heart of Chatham, with shopping, banking, local museums, theatres and churches only a short distance away. If you prefer to stay close to home, our beautifully landscaped courtyard offers a secure place to relax, enjoy a walk or entertain friends.

Our Community Programs

St. Andrew’s Residence provides much more than exceptional retirement care; as an organization committed to seniors, we have and will continue to work closely with our community partners to bridge the gaps in seniors’ care through programs such as Meals on Wheels and our Seniors Day Out Program.

With the support of the Chatham Community Foundation and the 

Government of Canada, we recently purchased a new Meals on Wheels vehicle so we can reliably continue to provide services across much of Chatham-Kent. Since the onset of COVID-19, we observed close to a 40% increase in usage, bringing our yearly deliveries to 35,000 meals. We are grateful for the support of our funding partners and are proud to be caring for the community which cares for us.

We are excited to announce that we are reimagining how we offer our Seniors Day Out Program in a new form which accommodates the needs of seniors living across the various communities of Chatham-Kent. Incorporating older adults across Chatham-Kent , from Wheatley to Dresden, Ridgetown to Wallaceburg, and all the wonderful places in between that we call home, we aim to provide equable access to social activities and personal care services in a safe and comfortable environment.

Together We Are Stronger

Moving towards a state of normalcy with COVID-19, we continue to embrace opportunities for expanded residential and community programs to enrich the lives of seniors. Currently, we offer more than 150 monthly programs for our resident’s enjoyment. True to our mission, we continue to welcome new volunteers, from driving for Meals on Wheels or assisting with the Seniors Day Out programs, to helping in various capacities at the Residence, to participating on our Board or supporting the St. Andrew’s Residence Foundation.
