Our Perspective

How we see Courtyard Gardens - Verve Senior Living

Customized care that meets the needs of community members is a hallmark of life at Courtyard Gardens. One of the unique features of this community is the private pay suites, where you have the option to purchase personalized services customized to your needs. There are a variety of suite sizes that allow for this option, ranging in size from one to two bedrooms. In addition, suites available in the assisted living residence are subsidized under the auspices of the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority (VCH).

Just a few blocks south of the Fraser River in Richmond is an oasis of pleasant living called Courtyard Gardens. In this community, seniors find renewal thanks to the great food and care provided by staff. This community provides a variety of options that will feel customized for your needs. There are options in the assisted living level and in residential care; you can also select whatever care you require and pay only for the assistance you need.

Visit in the summer and you'll be very impressed by the outdoor patio. Courtyard Gardens lives up to its name with pleasant floral arrangements spread around the exterior. But, as Canadians, we know that you are going to have to spend time indoors during the year, too. Inside, there are resident art classes, movie nights, exercise programs and more. Take care of yourself better than you ever have before thanks to the in-house spa and beauty salon, and there are also scheduled outings for sopping and fun shared activities like golfing. The only thing that there is little of, here, is house cleaning, cooking and putting away dishes.

Testimonials and Stories

  • Keeping everyone safe

    At Verve Senior Living, our focus is to provide services and supports that enable seniors to optimize their health, well-being, and independence. During the pandemic we looked to our experienced internal Leadership teams and Health and Wellness Leaders who work closely with our provincial health authorities to provide the best possible roadmap for navigating a worldwide pandemic. Our Infection, Prevention and Control policies and plans, which included visitor screening, masking, social distancing, hand hygiene and thorough enhanced disinfection of our sites allowed us to combat Covid. These plans aligned to provide the utmost in safety and security for our Residents physically, and continues to be an important security measure for attaining their optimal mental health in knowing their safety is at the forefront of all we do.

    Our Residents remained in their suites for short periods of time — this was key in keeping the virus out of our Retirement Residences. Health care support continued to be provided on a one-on-one basis and our Life Enrichment team members worked to engage residents in a way that kept them active and socially engaged. All meals, snacks, treats, entertainment, and even happy hour beverages were brought to their suites, which were widely welcomed and appreciated by everyone! By following the safety guidelines and visits with loved ones, walks in the hallways or outside proved beneficial in enhancing both physical and mental exercise.

    Mandatory Covid-19 vaccination for all residents and team members in our homes has been instrumental in decreasing the severity of outbreaks. Continuing to keep everyone safe is first and foremost in all that we do at Verve! To find out more on how Residents at Verve felt about living through these times, view it in their words below.
