Comfort Life Review

stories

This brightly lit, homey Richmond retirement community offers a welcoming environment that gives new energy to the seniors who make this their new home. This is a Verve community, with that company's distinct take on combining exceptional environments with detailed care, in a vision that's intent on helping people live every moment to its fullest – no matter what your age.

You'll find pleasant spaces spread throughout this community. Established for nearly 20 years, this community is suited to offer a unique combination of modernity and coziness. The exterior is well-gardened and lush with greenery. Inside, every corner is well lit, with clean lines found in every interior. There's an outdoor patio enhanced by wood-grain furniture. Suites are brightly lit with walk-in closets and select suites featuring a balcony. You're blessed with beautiful views of the local mountains, and nearby there's plenty of parkland, shopping and much more to enjoy.

Life here is enriched by educational activities ranging from BrainGym to in-house workshops. Seniors gain renewed vitality through a variety of fitness programs, including osteofit, walking activities, tai chi and more. There's personal renewal in the form of birthday celebrations or in daily gatherings in the Gilmore Arms and other parts of the community where you meet new friends and deepen social relationships. In the end, a renewed appreciation for life is what you'll find most of at Gilmore Gardens.

Independent Living (definition)
Cost from $3,450

Here at Gilmore Gardens although we are an independent living community, we do understand people have times when they need extra support and we know changes occur. For this, we have several great options and services in place! We have a full-time Health and Wellness Manager who is a licensed nurse and offers weekly health and wellness sessions, consultations regularly, etc, We also have additional housekeeping and medical reminder options, office services, handyman services etc. For extra medical or care-aide support, residents can arrange for their own private care as needed. A 24 hour monitoring system as well as an emergency response staff member on-site at all times, helps residents to feel safe, secure, and supported. All this, with a wonderful family-like environment and caring staff, makes Gilmore Gardens the great place it is for those who choose to live here!
