You could win one year of free living at one of BC's best boutique retirement communities

Win one year of free living

Retirement marks the start of an exciting new chapter for those who are ready and willing to embrace life’s next adventures. During these golden years, seniors have the opportunity to ‘begin again’ and live their lives to the fullest, however that may look like to them.

For some, that means engaging in long-held interests, discovering brand new hobbies and forming valuable friendships. And it’s these very concepts that independent living retirement communities are all about providing for their residents.

Independent living communities are designed for seniors who are fully independent but would like to live in a social environment with avenues for connection and engagement during their retirement years.

Summerland Seniors Village is one example of one of those dynamic living communities.

Located in the quaint town of Summerland, between Penticton and Kelowna, the boutique retirement community offers both independent and assisted living options for residents as well as complex care. Summerland Seniors Village offers its community members plenty of freedom and choice through fulfilling experiences that tap into their passions for knowledge, creativity, fun and camaraderie.

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

Summerland Seniors Village offers an endless amount of enriching daily programs and activities. Its residents can experience their shared special interests together, including baking, walking, movies, card games, gardening and a weekly happy hour.

These are just some of the ways community members can live their lives to the fullest in one of the most beautiful destinations in Canada. It’s no wonder residents of Summerland Seniors Village proudly call this lively living community their home.

“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.
