COVID-19 Information

Maya Angelou once said, “Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.” It feels like it is a rather apt reminder as we continue to navigate the pandemic. While we remember to wash our hands, protect ourselves, and respect others, there are also ways in which we can focus on bringing hope and laughter to our community. Let us live with hope and zest for life even while enduring the challenges set before us. We must continue to stay focused on best practises, express gratitude to the caregivers and frontline workers, and above all continue to live in hope and look for ways to “be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud.”

Alberta remains under a state of public health emergency. New Public Health restrictions came into effect starting September 16th to reduce the spread and protect our health care system. Businesses participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program will require patrons or clients to be vaccinated or to show a recent negative test result. Recently, British Columbia announced that it will mandate that all healthcare workers be vaccinated for COVID-19 by October 31st, 2021. British Columbia also announced a Vaccination Passport System, and starting October 12th, all visitors to long-term care and assisted-living facilities will need to show proof they have received at least one dose.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


The interior design and layout of this community focuses on comfort. Cozy settings throughout the home include a library/reading room, a piano lounge, and a pleasant outdoor courtyard. It’s strikingly rife with amenities, in fact, also including a dining hall, with a pool table, and a hair salon. Suites here are very comfy-looking.

The best thing about life here is the care available in an intimate community including both staff and fellow seniors. Norman Manor is an affordable community compared to other options. The combination of amenities and comfort will appeal to frugal-minded, friendship-oriented seniors from Abbotsford, Chilliwack and the surrounding area.

General Manager's Message
Nicki Leroux

I am the second youngest of six girls and I was born and raised in a small farm town in Campbellville, Ontario. After attending Niagara College I completed my student work practicum at Fairmont Banff Springs in Banff, Alberta. I was fortunate enough to spend twenty years living and working in the Great Canadian Rockies. I have many years of experience in luxury hospitality and restaurant management over my career and have always been committed to building strong relationships with those I work with and the individuals that we serve. I absolutely love serving others and am always looking for ways to improve every day. I am so excited to join the team at Norman Manor!
