Our talented culinary teams thrive on creating a daily array of menu choices that are full of flavour and variety. The Executive Chef at Cedar Springs PARC comes from the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. You'll see his passion for food and hospitality shine through in the delicious food he prepares everyday. Menu options don’t come down in a cookie-cutter approach from head office. At each residence, the Executive Chef and their culinary teams plan, prep and create their menu options to fit the tastes of their unique communities. Menus are designed around whole grains, fresh produce (some grown onsite in our own gardens), the right amount of protein and plenty of nutrients. In addition to regular well-balanced foods, we’re pleased to offer PARC SMART portion-controlled entrees which are low in sodium, saturated fat and concentrated sugars.

    Testimonial from Cathyexpand

    A testimonial from Cathy, daughter of Cedar Springs PARC resident:

    I don’t think there is anything that you have missed... I love the fact that dogs and kids are welcome there. I can’t tell you what a relief it is for our family to have my mother in a residence that so clearly cares about the comfort, safety and enjoyment of everyone.”


    Preventing senior fallsexpand

    One moment you’re reaching for that teapot on the upper shelf of your kitchen. The next, you’re on the floor writhing in pain, chastising yourself for having not been more careful.

    It’s oh too common. One-third of people aged 65 years and over typically fall once or more in any calendar year, and nearly one-half of people in long-term care facilities were admitted because they had a fall.

    Break your hip, and it can be even worse. Half of those who do, never regain their pre-fall level of functioning. The good news? There is plenty you can do to help prevent falls from happening.

    Naturally, you can’t entirely eliminate the risk of falling (short of sitting in your chair all day and not going anywhere). Yet there are precautions you can take.

    So, what contributes to a fall?

    It’s all about balance. Having a lack of stability or the inability to recover your balance is the most common reason for falls.

    There are a number of factors that contribute to a lack of balance:

    • Chronic illnesses like strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, arthritis and heart disease can cause instability
    • Taking multiple medications or inappropriate use of meds increases the risk of falling
    • Age-related sensory changes like poor eyesight or hearing, muscle weakness or poor gait
    • An over-indulgence in alcoholic beverages
    • Slippery floors, throw rugs and loose carpeting
    • Walking surfaces cluttered with objects like cords, pet dishes or newspapers
    • Carrying heavy or awkward bags or purses

    What can you do?

    The three most beneficial actions you can take are: exercise, exercise and exercise. Whether it’s Tai Chi, chair yoga, resistance training in the gym or Nordic walking, it’s important to keep your muscles on the move. You’ll retain strength and balance to help prevent a weakening of the muscles that can lead to a fall. The other benefit is that if you DO fall, stronger muscles will help you cushion the fall and help protect the bones against possible breaks.

    •  If you’re on medications, ensure you keep regular appointments with PARC’s Wellness Nurse to review them, especially if dosages change or your condition changes.
    •  If you indulge in alcoholic beverages, ensure you are sitting down at the time, and ask for help if you need it to stand up, and even get to your room. Staff are always available to assist.
    •  Take stock of your suite. Are there loose items lying around you could trip over, or unstable surfaces? Try and clear any potential hazards.
    •  Try to minimize what you need to carry around. Extra bags and big purses can easily throw one off balance.
    •  If you have an assistive walking device, use it. Always.
    •  Don’t be shy in asking for help reaching for difficult-to-reach items.
    •  Eat regularly. PARC cuisine offers you all the nutritional benefits your body needs. By eating well and eating regularly, you will help prevent your joints, muscles and bones from weakening.

    Through PARC Retirement Living’s Independent Living+ program, we have a full complement of resources and services to help promote your health through active aging. We offer exercise classes, a gym, wellness nurse, chauffeur service, PARC SMART nutritional options and more. By actively utilizing these resources, you’ll be doing your best to prevent muscle deterioration, helping to prevent falls.


    Real Life Resident Stories - Henryexpand

    “Enjoying the view from the top”

    As a lifelong skier and mountaineering enthusiast who has volunteered as a safety patrol officer in Whistler for the past 26 years, Henry can’t say enough about the location of Cedar Springs PARC. “We have mountain trails on our doorstep, beaches and waterways for paddling. This is a huge advantage to other seniors’ residences. It makes this place unique.”

    Henry is an avid hiker and regularly heads to the Baden-Powell and other nearby mountain trails; he also kayaks in nearby Deep Cove and swims at Cates Park. And to fuel all that exercise he turns to Cedar Springs’ Chef Josef. “I don’t see how it could be any better…it astounds me”, says Henry of the culinary creations. Henry often pre-orders a tray to dine outside and enjoy the tranquility of the Cedar Springs patio. “You get the same meals as served in the dining room, with the benefit of enjoying the outdoors…if someone joins me, great, and if not, that is fine too.”

    Henry can’t say enough about the staff at Cedar Springs, “they’re outstanding; such nice people.” But one of the best parts, for him, is his suite’s panoramic vista of the North Shore mountains. “My wife and I lived near UBC for 41 years, and we had an outstanding view of the mountains, city and ocean. But the one I have now…it’s pretty hard to beat!”

    That’s how it is at Cedar Springs PARC: It’s so easy to embrace your interests or start something brand new. And with PARC’s focus on maintaining a healthy body and mind through our Independent Living+ program, it’s easy to see how life’s just better here.


    Real Life Resident Stories - Marlene & Richardexpand

    “It’s home here.”

    Richard and Marlene both came to Cedar Springs PARC after almost six decades of marriage to their respective late spouses. Marlene had been looking for a walking partner when she noticed new resident Richard heading out each day. Over the next year they discovered their many shared interests – including fitness, travel and languages.

    In June 2016, the pair were married at a nearby church with their friends and family in attendance. The ceremony was followed by a reception, catered by Chef Josef, that they hosted for the residents at Cedar Springs PARC. “They’re all our friends now”, says Marlene.

    Maintaining their health is important to both. “Richard gets up at 5:30am to exercise, I participate in the PARC FIT program and we both have tried Chi Gong, Zumba and Yoga.” Chimes in Richard, “there are just so many opportunities to be active here.”

    Between fitness, the Cedar Springs French conversation group (started by Richard) and the sing-along group, the couple like to relax by enjoying the sweeping ocean and mountain views from the two-bedroom unit they recently moved into, and planning their honeymoon to Prague later this year.

    That’s how it is at Cedar Springs PARC:  residents get involved. They stay active.  And pursue passions. They eat healthier and laugh more. And with PARC’s focus on maintaining a healthy body and mind through our Independent Living+ program, it’s easy to see how life’s just better here.

    Cedar Springs PARC is still very new, providing very modern, spacious suites and an impressive array of amenities. You will find a spa, a hairdresser, wellness centre, golf and a movie theatre, along with simpler pleasures like card games with friends, hiking trails and gardening. For all that, the care provided, from the emergency call system, to wheelchair accessibility throughout, to the nursing staff onsite make this an ideally safe home for seniors who are still very independent; staff here clearly demonstrate deep caring in everything they do.

    Suites feature spectacular views of the nearby natural areas. Inside, there are delicious meals all prepared for you; you'll also find fitness facilities and very active hobby rooms. Nearby is all the shopping you need, and slightly further afield there are a variety of spectacular natural areas. Maplewood Flats is an ideal day outing with family, as is Roche Point Park. Mount Seymour Park is both a skiing destination and a natural wonder.
