COVID-19 Information

Maya Angelou once said, “Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.” It feels like it is a rather apt reminder as we continue to navigate the pandemic. While we remember to wash our hands, protect ourselves, and respect others, there are also ways in which we can focus on bringing hope and laughter to our community. Let us live with hope and zest for life even while enduring the challenges set before us. We must continue to stay focused on best practises, express gratitude to the caregivers and frontline workers, and above all continue to live in hope and look for ways to “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”

Alberta remains under a state of public health emergency. New Public Health restrictions came into effect starting September 16th to reduce the spread and protect our health care system. Businesses participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program will require patrons or clients to be vaccinated or to show a recent negative test result. Recently, British Columbia announced that it will mandate that all healthcare workers be vaccinated for COVID-19 by October 31st, 2021. British Columbia also announced a Vaccination Passport System, and starting October 12th, all visitors to long-term care and assisted-living facilities will need to show proof they have received at least one dose.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


A very fitting sense of home pervades everything about this community. Here, there’s definitely no feeling like being in a ‘facility.’ Chilliwack Lifestyles is run by Optima Living, a company founded on principles focused on respecting elders and traditional values. The cosiness and warmth is complemented by a palpable respect between staff and residents, carried over into the way residents communicate with each other.

Many of the rooms here inspire calmness and comfort. Dining is an intimate, relaxed affair, with tables sized for family-style gatherings. If you like people, you’ll like dining here. Other intimate settings include the library/reading room, and a games room. The woodgrain floors and furniture throughout will also recall you to a simpler era.

General Manager's Message
Wilma Wahl

I was born and raised in the Fraser Valley. Chilliwack has been my home for the past 25 years. I love the mountains, the farmlands and the rivers that run through our community.

I have been working with seniors for the past 18 years. The first few years I enjoyed cooking and serving the residents. It gave me such joy to work with the seniors and to provide for them on a daily basis that I wanted to do more for them.

Over time I grew into the management position. I enjoy all aspects of the job, from helping families find the right home for their loved one, to helping residents get settled into their new home, and making our residents feel safe and know that our staff have their best interest at heart. I strive to find staff that will go the extra mile for our seniors and to help our residents know and feel that this is home!

I do what I do because it’s the small things we do that make all the difference for our seniors. To see the love and share with them the joy that we give to each other really makes me feel like a job well done! This is what family is all about and we want to welcome our seniors home.
