Reviews of Orchard Gardens Seniors Community

Gain exclusive insight into life at Orchard Gardens Seniors Community. Comfort Life’s reviews give you exclusive insider information.

Our perspective

Orchard Gardens offers Kelowna and Okanagan Valley seniors a comfortable, affordable senior living solution in a home created with them in mind. As part of VRS Communities Society, this location also focuses on an enriched lifestyle that gives seniors and families real value for their money. Residents here share that they enjoy the company of both staff and other seniors with whom they find many things in common.

It’s a fun environment at Orchard Gardens. There are movie nights, a very active games room, and plenty of social activities on the schedule. Dining here is also notably elegant. It’s a setting where people grow friendships and support each other.

With walking paths nearby, backing onto Davie Park, and situated close to churches, shopping, and other services, residents have a comfortable setting in which to thrive. This community has always been lauded (under its previous name, Fenbrae Manor) for its independent living, great food, and positive atmosphere. VRS builds on that with its dedication to responsiveness and compassionate care.

Suites here are spacious, brightly lit, and cozy. These are nice when you want to relax or even have an in-home visit with friends. Those living here have brought their own furnishings and personal accents, and after brief adjustment, Orchard Gardens becomes a happy home for them. (You can also choose to bring pets.) And of course, people don’t spend a lot of time in their suites, thanks to the many new friends they make here.

Sue B. , family member

My Dad is really happy there. All of the staff are helpful, kind and accommodating. The residents are very friendly and welcoming. He enjoys the delicious meals and the activities.

Leslie Smith, family member

What a wonderful community and home we've found for our Dad! The staff have been so caring and accommodating and as per my Dad, the food has been excellent. His apartment is quiet and perfectly sized and the grounds are just beautiful. But what takes a place and makes it a home is the warmth and good feeling you get when you come in. You feel that at Orchard Gardens. It feels alive with happy staff and happy residents mingling and socializing. We can't begin to describe the positive effect it's had on our Dad and how much younger and happier he seems. Our biggest regret is not moving him here sooner.

Helen, resident

I have lived [here] for 2.5 years. I love my suite; it is comfortable, quiet and secure. I also enjoy the large library and Beauty Salon. The management and staff are of a top caliber and put their hearts into their work.

Christianna Weekes, senior

The atmosphere of Fernbrae is different from every old folks home I’ve been to. Everyone there, residents and staff, are very welcoming and they all seem to care deeply about one another. From what I’ve seen, the staff goes above and beyond to put effort into helping with any problems the residents have. :D

Diana, resident

Orchard Gardens is a very special place to reside. Our meals are lovely and are served in an elegant dining room. Orchard has so many choices for entertainment that I never tire for things to do. I love the beautiful grounds full of different variety of colorful flowers. There is fun to be had at Orchard Gardens and above all kindness and understanding for those that live in our community.

Irene, resident

My suite is large and spacious; the meals are creative and colorful. The outdoor-walking grounds are beautifully sculptured. For me, there is nothing missing at Orchard Gardens.
