Barbara never felt ready to move into a seniors’ community. But after a serious fall, she realized it was time to make a change and move into a place where she could remain independent, and benefit from services to keep her safe, healthy, active and engaged.
“You have to realize that getting older is going to happen,” says Barbara, who has lived at Tapestry since 2019. “Things are going to change and you have to realize that you may need assistance.”
Barbara’s family is delighted she chose Tapestry as her new home. It offers a wellness-inspired environment where residents can live healthy, engaged, purposeful, and socially-connected lives. The community offers endless programs and activities, and staff is always looking for new ways to inspire residents to remain active to support their independence.
Norm, who moved into Village Gate West in 2019, was one of the first to embrace urban poling when it was introduced to residents. In his first year of using urban poles on neighbourhood walks, Norm tracked more than 300 km, inspiring everyone around him to take an active step forward. Norm's wellness journey is an inspiring story.
Tapestry’s exciting level of wellness activity is what inspired fellow residents Pat and Murray to move into Village Gate West. “We loved the fact that Tapestry was a smaller community that had lots of activity going on,” says Pat. “We also really liked the ‘feel’ of Village Gate West.” They exemplify how to live life to the fullest at Tapestry.
Tapestry’s community “feeling” is often what attracts new residents, who appreciate the warm and comfortable ambience, along with the exceptional amenities and services that may not at first glance appear available. Tapestry employees do not wear uniforms that imply an institutional setting. They’re encouraged to contribute to the vibrancy and spirit that define the unique community feeling inside Tapestry at Village Gate West.
An important component of the community’s wellness offerings that may not be readily noticed is the assisted living services delivered by personal support workers. Tapestry provides assisted living services in the privacy and discretion of a resident’s suite to fully respect their dignity and independence. Services are fully customizable to residents’ needs as they evolve and include such offerings as shower assistance, grooming and hygiene support, medication administration, and blood pressure and weight monitoring.
For ease and convenience, residents can purchase assisted living packages or choose services a la carte if and when needed. Whatever the choice, the convenience and dependability of Tapestry’s compassionate assisted living services provides confidence and peace of mind to residents and family members.
“After several years at Tapestry, my wife required additional support,” says Carlos, a resident of Village Gate West since 2019. “The daily assistance provided by Tapestry employees was excellent. They helped us to continue to live independently together for many years.”
If you have been thinking about seniors’ living, the best advice Tapestry offers is not to wait to make a move. Get inspired by Village Gate West residents, Pat and Murray, who were clear they wanted to decide on their next move for themselves and select a community that was just “right for them”.
