How we see Magnolia Gardens
This community offers diligent support from the top down. Seniors here are effusive about the care and attention they receive, and the added joy they feel from the beauty of the landscape, design, and construction. Magnolia Gardens is a great place to live.
Tour the outside of this community and you’ll be impressed by the spectacular exterior's lush gardens and tranquil courtyard. That will give you a sense of the peace you'll feel if you move into this community. You see, you can create a clean, bright, cheerful environment, but to really make people cheerful takes more.
What we've heard from people who live here is that it’s a beautiful place to live, and they’re not just talking about the decor. Some people have been here for seven years or longer, which speaks volumes, we think. In a walk-through of the community, you can see all levels of staff interacting with residents. You’ll hear anecdotes from both seniors and family members about staff taking time to accommodate unusual requests and taking personal time to make residents’ lives better.
How Magnolia Gardens sees itself
We're a tranquil oasis in the heart of Langley City, offering all-inclusive independent senior living and a licensed long-term Care Centre. Our apartments are bright and spacious, and our lifestyle is vibrant and carefree. Our Executive Chef caters to you with three delicious meals a day with a variety of freshly made options. Meet your wellness and health goals with the help of our recreation team. Enjoy a vibrant social life with live entertainment, bus trips, games and more.
When we opened in 2001, we were one of Langley's very first retirement living communities. Because of this, we have a very strong reputation—everyone knows Magnolia Gardens, and everyone knows someone who has lived in Magnolia Gardens. Our staff team is widely respected and beloved. We're known as a warm, welcoming and caring community. We are honoured to be a pillar in the community of Langley.
Moving to a new community can be challenging, and we have an intentional process to help residents adapt to their new home. Meeting the Managers face to face is a key aspect of this process. Also, new residents are connected with a resident ambassador who visits with them, helps them get to know the lay of the land, and introduces them to new people. Connecting with staff and residents help make the transition to your new home easier.
Often new residents are surprised at how quickly they become part of the Magnolia Gardens family. Our staff work hard to get to know residents even on their first day so they can greet them by name. From the beginning, you feel like you're part of a larger community. Our service is personal, and we pay special attention to you as an individual—you are known, seen and loved in this community.

I very much enjoy living at Magnolia Gardens. Apart from not having to worry about cooking, cleaning and having bed linens changed and laundered - as well as towels - I like the opportunities to participate - or not! - in a variety of activities, both in-house and in the community. Based on my exper...
Mom was born and raised in Vancouver and spent the majority of her entire life in Vancouver, so coming to Langley was a big change for her. Losing her partner, the uncertainty, being along, it was very worrisome and troubling for her. My wife and I, after doing our due diligence and looking into seniors’ communities, we chose Magnolia Gardens for my mother.
Upon bringing her out here, she was extremely nervous, and I must say, the entire staff, they’ve all been absolutely fabulous at making mom feel so comfortable and welcome. She didn’t know anybody; however, they were quick to introduce her to other members of the community; she has most certainly has picked up some very good and new friends.
So the transition to Magnolia Gardens has been so good for her. It’s been comfortable, she feels safe, she absolutely loves her suite, she raves about the meals. And she talks about Michael, the head chef, who not only makes her smile and gives her a good laugh on occasion but also is very accommodating of her choices and her diet.
After a couple of years of mom being out here, she wouldn’t want to be anywhere else; she’s extremely happy, she’s comfortable, she feels safer than she ever has in her entire life, according to her. And as well she has met some wonderful friends that surely will be lifelong friendships created here. And they have a ball. And she now calls it her forever home as she is so happy and feels so fortunate to be here.
