The best thing about Granville Gardens is the care you'll find here. Having regular, chef-prepared meals offered daily is just the start of the life enhancement you'll take part in here. The group activities – including games, exercise, outings and in-house entertainment make life as sociable as you want it. There's round the clock watchful security provided by professional staff. Staff has been characterized by one family member as "a wonderful, caring group who [has] patiently held our hands" through the decision process.



Spacious retirement home in Kerrisdale

This is another exceptional senior care community from Verve, a company that brings more than 40 years' experience to every property they offer. Granville Gardens exhibits Verve's penchant for creating a variety of welcoming spaces throughout the community. We particularly love the main foyer, which is spacious and immediately presents different settings where you can take a quiet moment by yourself and look forward to times in the future when you will sit with friends to enjoy a chat. There's a capacious dining room with tables spread generously around the room, featuring daffodil-coloured carpeting. Seniors' rooms are bright, spacious and comfortable.

What people love about life at Granville Gardens is the many different spaces available to pamper yourself in different ways. There are spaces where you can indulge in art, another room where you can do chair yoga or work on a jigsaw puzzle (by yourself or with a partner), quiet spots to have a chat or read by yourself, a movie theatre where you can watch the latest TV offering … You can really create a complete life, a new life, within the walls of Granville Gardens. Of course, outside there's so much more to do, including neighbourhood strolls with the walking club, shopping, restaurants and lovely Kerrisdale parkland.

The great thing about this new life, of course, is that you don't have to do your own cooking or housecleaning, and there are always people standing by to offer your assistance or care … whatever you need. For those who have worked hard for themselves all their lives, it can be hard to accept a helping hand, but once you get used to it (and admit that maybe you deserve it), there is nothing like the life you will find at Granville Gardens.

It's a beautiful and spotless [brand new] home ... [we're] very comforted with the fact that mom will have the best care possible.

Granville Gardens welcomed my sister into this home like she was royalty.  She was treated with the most loving and caring treatment by all staff.  [She] was very sick, and everyone went above and beyond to ensure she was comfortable.  I cannot rave enough about how much [they] accommodated our family and the kindness that they showed to all of us.  My sister's memories of Granville Gardens and our family are, that the people that work [here] are very special, and they truly care for the res

Like royalty

Granville Gardens welcomed my sister into this home like she was royalty.  She was treated with the most loving and caring treatment by all staff.  [She] was very sick, and everyone went above and beyond to ensure she was comfortable.  I cannot rave enough about how much [they] accommodated our family and the kindness that they showed to all of us.  My sister's memories of Granville Gardens and our family are, that the people that work [here] are very special, and they truly care for the residents.  I met many of the residents, and they are all friendly and happy [here]. Thank you Granville Gardens for making the last few months of my sisters life special.

My mom has lived here for 2 1/2 years. She has faced many adjustments, her husband of 70 years passed away, COVID lockdown, and living alone for the first time in her life. Granville Gardens made her feel important and loved. The staff go above [and beyond] to make her feel loved and valued. Eating with her friends is her highlight of the day. She joins activities and has made new friends. Change is never easy, imagine doing it at 100. [Granville Gardens] makes the transition a positive one. [Ja

My mom has been living at Granville Gardens for just over a year. It is a perfect new home for her. The staff are wonderful and they have done a fantastic job over the course of the pandemic. We wondered if she would cope here with her dementia, but my mom has thrived here. She has made new friends and has embraced the activities here. She has been more active in the last year than she was in previous few years prior to moving in. In her words: "I love it here!". [Dec 2020]
