Meet Chef Robert Mills
Director of Hospitality
I’m Chef Robert Mills, Director of Hospitality at Wellings, and it’s my absolute pleasure to connect with you.
The food we prepare must be the kind we’d come home for. It’s not just about great taste; it’s about bringing people together over food, fun, and family. I love creating meals inspired by our member’s requests, childhood favourites, and even a few unexpected surprises. But the joy of cooking doesn’t stop at our community kitchens – I want to inspire you, too. At Wellings, your kitchen is your culinary playground where you can cook and bake whenever inspiration strikes.
We work to provide variety, quality, and the magic of fresh produce from local farmers. Every dish we serve, from the simple grilled cheese to the extravagant stuffed lamb leg—my personal favourite, is crafted with love and pride. We understand that food is more than just a meal; it’s an opportunity for our members to come together in celebration.
I look forward to making a difference in your culinary experiences here at Wellings, and I can’t wait to welcome you to our table.
Meet Kathie Donovan
Wellings Happiness Expert
I’m Kathie Donovan, the “Happiness Expert”, for Wellings. For a large part of my life, you could say I was an ‘Unhappiness Expert’. I’ve been an avid student of human behaviour most of my life, in an attempt to figure out how to bust out of my own misery. The key for me was learning about the power of my thoughts and the fact that they’re the only thing I have control over. I’ve been on a mission to help others unlock the same power in their own lives ever since.
Over forty years later, I am a proud advocate for ageless living, a voracious study of the world’s preeminent experts, and do my part to encourage fresh conversations around aging, supporting the understanding that each of us has something valuable to offer the world at every chapter and every age.
At Wellings we discuss the profound impact of community and the comforting sense of belonging that comes when we discover others who share our interests and values.
Meet Kevin Pidgeon
President & COO Nautical Lands Group
Dive into a captivating conversation with Kevin Pidgeon, the President and COO of Nautical Lands Group, as he unveils the philosophy behind the Wellings communities.
At its core, Wellings’ success stems from extensive focus groups with seniors living with us and seniors living throughout Ontario and Alberta, ensuring that every decision is in tune with the community’s needs. Kevin emphasizes that while buildings form the physical infrastructure, the real essence of a community is its people. The Wellings model celebrates independence, allowing members to lead a lifestyle defined by choice rather than routine. From the initial retirement homes to the various Wellings iterations, each development showcases a commitment to evolution based on continuous feedback, redefining housing for the 55+ community in Canada.
