What Bria Resident's Say: Desley's Story

Freedom, safety, choice — just three of the reasons Desley Cook loves life at The Wexford in Tsawwassen.

I’m Desley Cook, and I’m 86 years, 87 in July. And I live at The Wexford, and I’m very happy with being here. It’s like a home away from home. 

The girls downstairs are all wonderful; they take good care of us. They always have open arms for us and make us feel wanted. The chef is really nice, and he serves us. If we don’t like what we get, we can ask for something different. 

We have wonderful entertainment here. We have sing-alongs, and we dance, and we do all these crazy things old people aren’t supposed to do, but we do. I just appreciate it all.

You can be busy all day, or you can go to your room and close it and be private. And that’s another thing I like, you don’t feel obligated to be out and doing things, and that’s nice.

I think it’s the freedom and yet you feel secure. You know that going to bed at night, you’re secure. If you don’t feel well, we have buttons all over the place, and you can press them; they can get you an ambulance or whatever you need. And they know what they’re doing. That’s what I like.

We have all the securities we need here. When I go to bed at night I feel safe, I just turn my lights off and that’ sit. I feel safe at all times. And that’s of great importance to an older person.
