Win full year of free living at Summerland Seniors Village

Win year of free living

Moving into an independent living community is the start of something wonderful.

Instead of feeling alone and isolated, seniors moving into a new community with plenty of new faces creates memories, inspires new interests and hobbies, and makes many lasting friendships.

Doing it one of the most beautiful parts of Canada makes it an even more fulfilling experience.

Summerland Seniors Village is a dynamic living community that offers both independent and assisted living options for residents, and now you have an opportunity to live there for a full year for free.

That’s right. Retirement Concepts, which owns and operates Summerland Seniors Village, is rewarding one lucky winner with one year of free living at one of its 18 seniors’ housing facilities across B.C.

The grand prize includes accommodation fees for a private one-bedroom unit, plus coverage for meals, hydro and parking. The prize is valued at approximately $70,000 total.

Summerland Seniors Village is located in the heart of the Okanagan Valley, which means beautiful weather and nearby warm beaches are part of the package.

There is plenty of fun to be had indoors and on site as well. Summerland Seniors Village offers a large number of enriching daily programs and activities. Its residents can experience their shared special interests together, including baking, walking club, movies, card games, gardening, bridge and a weekly happy hour.

“When a new resident moves in, the comment we always hear is: I wish I had moved in sooner,” West Coast Seniors Housing Management marketing and sales director Rob Akimow says. “We see folks who previously may have been feeling isolated or lonely build new friendships in their new community. It’s really quite heartwarming.”

When new friendships are made, more activities are experienced together. And when more activities are experienced together, a cultivated sense of community is created.

Staff members are always there for anything residents require, and they take feedback to make life even better. The meals are delicious, and special diets are accommodated.

“It’s very clean, and the staff is very friendly,” says Bea Duquette, a current resident of Summerland Seniors Village. “The chef is amazing, and I would recommend this community to anybody.”

In addition to Summerland Seniors Village, West Coast Seniors Housing Management manages the day-to-day operations of Retirement Concepts’ retirement communities throughout the B.C. Interior, including:
• Kamloops Seniors Village
• Williams Lake Seniors Village
