Our Perspective

How we see Wedgwood House

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.

Wedgwood House is another comfortable, cozy community by Nova Pacific. Being that it’s well-established, many community members have been here for some time and obviously enjoy each others’ company. Walk through on a typical day and you’ll see seniors joining together in Zumba classes or playing board games. When local seniors move here, they find many others with things in common.

This community also has a very pleasant location. On one side, it backs onto private property and greenspace just off the Cowichan River Valley. On the other, there’s proximity to downtown Duncan and the convenience of local shopping. The outdoor patio, backing onto the treed lot, is a fine way to take in one of the delicious chef-prepared meals served here. Many suites also look over that greenspace.
