Victoria, British Columbia
       

  • This newly opened community brings Tapestry’s brand of world class senior care to Victoria in a beautiful new setting, in the harbourfront area, just blocks away from verdant Beacon Hill Park. While the location itself is good cause to consider a lifestyle change, life here promises to be fulfilling in a much deeper sense. Not only are you close to natural beauty along with bountiful urban convenience, you’ll also find great support by staff.

Nanaimo, British Columbia
 

  • The heartfelt vision behind Origin communities—rooted in the respect that owner Neil Prashad had for his grandparents and parents growing up—is manifest in the generous amenities, gracious staff, and pleasant setting of Origin at Longwood. It’s an admirable instance of senior living at its very finest. Everything you need, and so much you might never have imagined possible is found here.
  • I have more than enough friends and more than enough things to do. It’s been a total life change f

  • Cherish at Central Park has developed an impressive community. It's a great choice for seniors looking for the very latest, best and brightest in senior living, in a world-class retirement destination, with a burgeoning community of peers and good friends. This state-of-the-art retirement village comes from seasoned professionals at Cherish who have helmed other very renowned retirement communities in Langford and Victoria.
  • I am really impressed. It's obvious people love living at Cherish.

Victoria, British Columbia
       

  • The Camelot is ideal for people who want something more intimate in a retirement residence, offering a cozily private community of peers. Among Victoria retirement homes, this is a unique, boutique-style community. You can come and go as you please, with a ready set of companions and friends living in the same building. Set in a quiet residential neighbourhood, people who are more introspective or artsy may find this to be a comfortable way to settle into retirement living.
  • Fabulous location, comfortable apartments, delicious dinners, and lovely staff. Two thumbs up!

Duncan, British Columbia
       

  • Wedgwood House is ideal for Duncan seniors who want to leave behind housework and lawn maintenance for retirement, but prefer to keep some familiarity and intimacy in their lives. It’s a close-knit community where people look out for each other, in a location that combines privacy with convenience.

Campbell River,, British Columbia
     

  • Winner of multiple building and design awards, Berwick Campbell River has one of the most breathtaking locations we’ve ever seen, overlooking the Strait of Georgia. It’s a special place that, to our minds, immediately leaps onto a short list of the very best retirement communities in all of Canada. For seniors anywhere in the country who’ve been exposed to the beauty of BC and want to retire in “the most beautiful place on earth,” this place is worth taking a closer look at.
  • Excellent for people to retire. Everybody, staff and employees, are very friendly and all the reside

Comox, British Columbia
     

  • Berwick offers spectacular locations across Vancouver Island, and Comox Valley is one more example. As with Parksville and other interior coastal locations, the climate here, coupled with the beauty of the area make this a very desirable place to live. Within that context, Berwick Comox Valley is itself a retirement destination, with superior features and amenities, a lively schedule of activities, and the tight-knit community that's found a home here.
  • Both my parents were fortunate to get in to Berwick. The facilities are so nice and the staff made t

Qualicum Beach, British Columbia
     

  • Setting is such a big part of how you feel every day. For many seniors, this is the reason they choose to remain in their own home, but a move to a place like Berwick Qualicum Beach, as attested by people who live there, could be an improvement on every level. It’s a simply wonderful place, built with the needs of today’s seniors in mind.
  • Attention to detail. Fantastic staff. Such a beautiful building with amazing food everyday.

Nanaimo, British Columbia
   

  • Berwick Retirement creates some of the most beautiful communities in BC, many at some of the most attractive waterfront locations in the province. There’s something to be said for the revitalization value of living in a location like Berwick on the Lake. It really does “impress on every level” and we’re hard-pressed to isolate factors to highlight, but the location, care, and dining here are certainly a few.
  • Would highly recommend Berwick on the Lake for respite care on the Brio Intermediate Care unit. Berw

Victoria, British Columbia
   

  • Berwick House in the Gordon Head area of Victoria is an award-winning, established community that brought the company’s original vision to fruition. Management has a reputation for hard work, dedication, and empathy. With new renovations launched (as of January 2022) this community will offer a renewed approach to senior living as we move forward into a new era post-pandemic.
  • My Mum lived in her suite for 10 years ... I highly [recommend them] at Shelbourne. All of the staff

South Kamloops, British Columbia
     

  • Berwick is the name behind some of BC’s most spectacular retirement home locations, and Berwick on the Park is no exception. Located on a hilltop overlooking Kamloops and the Thompson River, the beauty of the location alone is striking, but it’s really just the starting point for a community that impresses on every level. Seniors find a place to thrive here, surrounded by like-minded peers in a setting that caters to their every need.
