Our Perspective

How we see Oceana PARC

Liberation is a gift you give to yourself when you move into a community like Oceana PARC. Across Greater Vancouver, PARC Retirement Living's residences attract seniors with great attitudes who encourage each other to live their best lives. Oceana PARC helps boost their reputation for superior senior living.

Still very new, this community offers a lively community marked by very giving, generous community members. The location itself is world class, a few blocks from the shoreline, with clear views of Semiahmoo Bay. We love the bold colour palette of the interior, with lots of deep blues most noticeably, matching the name and ethos of the community.

Staff here is very efficient, service-oriented, and accommodating. They help keep things lively in the community, through many activities and outings. You’ll feel safe and rejuvenated daily, thanks to the lifestyle created by the setting, the amenities, and the welcoming community of both staff and residents.

Who are you as a community?

Conveniently located in the heart of White Rock’s shopping, cultural and recreation centre, Oceana PARC is just steps away from everything you need. Our award winning senior living community offers West Coast design and lush green spaces. A perfect fit for our modern suites with mountain and ocean views, and two stories of amenity spaces that allow ample room for games, music, and art – plus plenty of cozy fireside lounges. With complimentary transportation, it’s easy to access to the White Rock Pier or promenade.

What do you do differently or uniquely well?

The PARC Active Living™ program helps our residents stay healthy and self-reliant longer. It’s easy, fun, inspiring and soulful – enriching the body and the mind through four pillars of wellness: physical fitness, social pursuits, emotional health and nutritious meals.

Meredith Laci, family member

"My mother moved in November [2022] and the 3 months have been amazing for her and our whole family. The suites are very well set up, the view and balcony open her world up. The staff is so efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Lots of social activities! The food options are wholesome, delicious and a wide variety. Security minded but never overbearing, we know that mom is safe but family and friends can visit daily. I couldn’t think of a better place and experience for us to ha..."

Patrick “Paddy” Moore, senior

"I was just a visitor here but made to feel very welcome. Thanks to Sue Bolton, Activity Advisor and her enthusiastic staff. A friendly and very relaxing atmosphere. I can see why so many people call it home. "

Monique, family member

"We moved my 87 year old mom into Independent Living at PARC Retirement Living. We were worried and she was scared...... Now, we are a month in and I have difficulty getting a hold of her. Why? Because she has relished PARC Retirement Living Oceana. Kirk Lively and the rest of the team at Oceana have welcomed her and made her feel at home.

COVID-19 Information

The pandemic has been a tough time for seniors and their loved ones across Canada. But through it all, Oceana PARC (along with all PARC communities) has stayed ahead of the curve, keeping our residents safe and healthy, and our communities COVID-19-free.

This is partly thanks to our well-trained team, who quickly and proactively implemented provincial government health-and-safety protocols. But independent retirement communities like PARC are also uniquely positioned to keep residents safe during a pandemic, with multiple layers of defense already in place, from onsite wellness nurses to established sanitization and emergency protocols. As well, we offer chef-prepared meals, weekly suite housekeeping, and private transportation – lifelines when busy grocery stores and public spaces pose risks to seniors.

To protect our residents from COVID-19, we've implemented extra sanitization, physical distancing, mandatory face masks for employees, free resources for residents to shop, and socialize online and family meet-up centres with plexiglass barriers and virus-prevention filtration systems. Oceana PARC is as committed as ever to creating safe, independent, respectful, and healthy communities for our residents.
