What to expect from Berwick Retirement Communities

When you choose a Berwick Retirement Community, expect an unparalleled standard of living. With their focus on local ownership, they pride themselves on personalized service. Residents know that their voices are heard because Berwick has cultivated a culture of better listening.  Team members are all personally invested in the community. They truly care about creating a culture of compassion, comfort and caring.

Their philosophy is that, in order to provide the best senior care possible, it’s vital for senior living experts to really get to know each resident individually and tailor services to their needs. This involvement and dedication is seen at every level in the company, allowing Berwick Retirement Communities to make meaningful differences in the lives of BC seniors.

Personal involvement of the owners, in each Berwick community

The first Berwick Retirement Community, Berwick House in Victoria, opened its doors in 1989, under the watchful leadership of Gordon and Chris Denford. The father and son are actively involved in both the business operation and day to day activities of all communities, to this day. Move into a Berwick Retirement Community, and you’ll soon meet them, and perhaps even share a meal. 

At Berwick, there’s a focus on relationship-building 

As people advance in years, their circle of friends tends to get smaller. When you move into a Berwick Retirement Community, you’ll discover a friendly, engaging and accommodating atmosphere that helps you forge new friendships effortlessly, enhancing life with a revitalized social life and encouraging personal growth and fulfillment. Staff and residents all participate in this. The spirit of inclusion extends to every aspect of care.

Berwick's founders and their guiding principles

Berwick Retirement Communities’ senior management team is helmed by owners Gordon and Chris Denford, who have been working together for over 30 years to carry out their vision of always offering seniors “the best possible quality of life, in the nicest possible surroundings”.

Gordon has been building homes in Western Canada for over 60 years. In the mid 1980’s, he wanted to create a residence specifically designed for seniors, but exceeding the standards of the day. This included:

With the success of Berwick House in 1989, he continued to set the bar higher with five additional resort-style retirement communities, each individually unique and built specifically for their location.

Christopher works with Berwick’s architectural team in the design of each retirement community. He has over 30 years of residential development experience, extensive knowledge of seniors’ housing requirements and a keen eye for aesthetic details. This combination of skills enables him to assist in the design and development of award-winning independent living residences that, as he says, “he would be happy to live in himself”.
