COVID-19 Information

Verve’s COVID-19 Response
Verve Senior Living has been helping seniors stay active and live an independent lifestyle for over 43 years. Our approach to the COVID-19 pandemic has been defined by these values, with the safety and security of our residents of paramount importance to us. Verve continues to be a vibrant, fun, engaging, and safe place to live, thanks to our incredibly creative and caring team members who go the extra mile in all that they do. Visit one of our 32 retirement residence and see what living with Verve is all about.

“My family and I feel deeply blessed to have been able to relocate my father to Verve Senior Living. Throughout the process the management team went far above and beyond at every turn to help us. This was especially appreciated given Covid 19. They were patient, kind and empathetic, offering guidance and help the likes of which we had never experienced elsewhere. ”

SAFE & SECURE
Our COVID-19 Safety Protocols
At all times we must follow the guidelines set forth by the local provincial health authority. In many cases we implement safety initiatives before the governments mandates them. While we pride ourselves on doing everything we can to keep our residences safe, it does alter the way we connect with the outside community. Despite COVID’s interruption to our regularly scheduled lives, Verve continues to be a vibrant, fun, engaging, and safe place to live thanks to our incredibly creative and caring team members who go the extra mile in all that they do. To learn more about Verve’s COVID-19 safety protocols, please contact a Verve residence near you.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

This is another exceptional senior care community from Verve Senior Living, a company that brings more than 40 years' experience to every property they offer. Granville Gardens exhibits their penchant for creating a variety of welcoming spaces throughout the community. We particularly love the main foyer, which is spacious and immediately presents different settings where you can take a quiet moment by yourself and look forward to times in the future when you will sit with friends to enjoy a chat. There's a capacious dining room with tables spread generously around the room, featuring daffodil-coloured carpeting. Seniors' rooms are bright, spacious and comfortable.

What people love about life at Granville Gardens is the many different spaces available to pamper yourself in different ways. There are spaces where you can indulge in art, another room where you can do chair yoga or work on a jigsaw puzzle (by yourself or with a partner), quiet spots to have a chat or read by yourself, a movie theatre where you can watch the latest TV offering … You can really create a complete life, a new life, within the walls of Granville Gardens. Of course, outside there's so much more to do, including neighbourhood strolls with the walking club, shopping, restaurants and lovely Kerrisdale parkland.

The great thing about this new life, of course, is that you don't have to do your own cooking or housecleaning, and there are always people standing by to offer your assistance or care … whatever you need. For those who have worked hard for themselves all their lives, it can be hard to accept a helping hand, but once you get used to it (and admit that maybe you deserve it), there is nothing like the life you will find at Granville Gardens.
