Why Embassy West Senior Living?

Worry-Free Living with a Focus on Quality of Life

Embassy West Senior Living is a leading Ottawa retirement home for seniors who need advanced assisted living or Dementia care.  We offer our residents and their families a worry-free lifestyle by combining the comforts of home with quality care.  Our extensive range of clinical supports help our residents avoid unnecessary trips to the hospital and allow us to continue caring for our seniors as their care needs increase. The Embassy West Wellness Centre is located onsite and is available 24/7 to all of our residents.   The Wellness Centre features a full time medical team of doctors, nurses, and pharmacists that can coordinate all of our residents needs and provide hospital-grade services including bloodwork, labs, prescriptions, and EKGs. We strive to be the Ottawa's best retirement home and best Dementia care providers. 


"I've been involved with Embassy West for almost a decade as a clinical and family consultant, a staff educator, and as the advisory board chair.  Embassy West was one of the first retirement residences to focus on activities programming and maximizing quality of life for seniors with Dementia. At all levels of management from the owner to the manager to the front-line staff they are skilled, committed, and dedicated to providing the best care. "- Dr. Bill Dalziel, Geriatric Medicine Specialist M.D.
