Mulberry PARC

7230 Acorn Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia, V5E 4N9

This is a superb retirement community in the heart of Burnaby for independent seniors who want to feel rejuvenated and revitalized. PARC is the maker of numerous excellent retirement communities throughout the Greater Vancouver area, and Mulberry is a fine example of their work in a prime suburban location.

Interior amenities include a fireplace lounge, library and billiards room, along with a spa. There's an elegantly appointed main floor dining room, serving chef-prepared meals and desserts. You'll love the spacious patio on the outdoor terrace, ideal for summer visits with family, to play chess with the giant chess set, or to just sit out and bask in the sunshine. Suites are decorated in very tasteful colours and styles, with spectacular views of the city; included are spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers and other modern features ideal for seniors.

Legacy Senior Living

611 West 41st Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Z 0C7

A beautiful, bright, completely contemporary boutique-style retirement residence in the heart of the Oakridge area. This residence is focused on removing the boredom of mundane tasks and living alone. Vancouver and area seniors will find revival here, in the company of some very vibrant peers, in a surprising five-star residence.

This community features independent senior living, where housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation are a thing of the past. It extends to assisted living, guided by the community's Wellness Navigator, a Registered Nurse. Extra fees cover assistance with every manner of activity of daily living, from bathing and dressing, and other care.

OPAL by Element

438 West King Edward Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, V5Y2J4

This brand new building, opening in 2019, promises to incorporate all of the best elements of senior living. Amenities and services include chef-prepared meals, an onsite spa and beauty salon, an interior pub, rooftop patios, and an ongoing list of other features. The design includes 30,000 square feet of very unique innovations indoor and outdoor, like a rock salt wall for yoga exercises and tai chi, a full-service wellness spa for daily rejuvenation, and an interior IT centre. Versatile care staff and facilities will provide a complete continuum of care, from independent living to memory care and long term care. Construction begins in 2017, slated for completion in 2019.

Dining and culinary features promise to be a front and centre attraction. OPAL will offer an in-house program where residents can engage in cooking classes taught by the executive chef onsite. There will also be a communal table for dining with larger groups of friends, as well as private dining and living rooms. The variety of authentic cuisine will range from ethnic dishes like aburi sashimi and sushi, to a menu of locally supplied farm-to table foods. In addition to the promise of great food, there are wine tastings, a water bar with fruit and herb infusions, and a High Tea Service.

Thornebridge Gardens

649 8th Avenue, New Westminster, British Columbia, V3M 2R2

Thornebridge Gardens in downtown New Westminster is the place to go for seniors who want to continue all the best things in life while leaving behind cooking, taking out the garbage, cutting the grass and other pesky household tasks you'd rather do without. Thornebridge's independent living lifestyle encourages renewal through a lifestyle focusing on the things you want to do.

In the décor throughout this community there's an emphasis on coziness. The dining room features four chairs per table, creating intimate conversations over dinner. This coziness and closeness is also seen in the Social House Pub and the fireplace lounge. That coziness translates well for the activities going on here, too, which – depending on the time of day – may include people taking an art class, small groups in Bible study or people chatting over a cold beer in the pub. On the exterior, there's a wonderfully sunny patio populated with bright flowers in the summer. Seniors also keep their own private gardens on their balcony or in the courtyard.
