Our Perspective

How we see The Concorde Retirement Residence - Verve Senior Living

One of the most notable aspects of this community is the combination of professionalism and personal warmth exhibited by staff. You might see an example of that the moment you walk in the door, where you're likely to see staff working closely with seniors or simply engaged in friendly conversation. The company behind this community, Verve Senior Living, is committed to rethinking senior care, as exemplified in this attention to honouring the uniqueness of each senior in their care.

This gives Penticton, BC residents an elite quality retirement destination. People seeking supportive services get assistance, with dignity. But you also get so much more than care. Every community is shaped by individual involvement and personal attitudes. By optimizing every individual's personal wellness and happiness, the Concorde creates a uniquely happy community. Staff is focused on offering vibrant social outlets and creating fulfilling days for residents in their care.

While there are social outlets, life at the Concorde is, as one family member puts it, "perfect" as is. Fine dining here uses locally sourced food in meals crafted expertly. Then this is presented to you in a spacious, comfortable setting where you can sit with friends. You can also gather in the café. There's even a hair salon where ladies can get their hair done weekly if they want. It's top-shelf senior living.

"Excellent Assisted Living Home. Our fourth year completed. Management and staff are the best! Confirmed by many awards!"

"It is very comforting that our Mom could spend two good years of her life living at The Concorde. She loved the caring staff, friendly residents, well-maintained facility, and the many enjoyable activities (especially those which involved music). And, as her family, The Concorde welcomed us to participate with Mom in activities and meals (BTW ... great food!). The Concorde is truly a "home"."

“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.
