COVID-19 Information

erve’s COVID-19 Response
Verve Senior Living has been helping seniors stay active and live an independent lifestyle for over 43 years. Our approach to the COVID-19 pandemic has been defined by these values, with the safety and security of our residents of paramount importance to us. 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. Visit one of our 32 retirement residence and see what living with Verve is all about.

“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. ”

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. To learn more about Verve’s COVID-19 safety protocols, please contact a Verve residence near you.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


At Comfort Life, we’ve been excited about the Village ever since it was first announced in 2017. In Canada, it’s the best innovation yet, in design for memory care. The Village is built from the ground up with the needs of Alzheimer’s and dementia sufferers top of mind. We love how this both implements and adds to innovations in memory care.

Prominent effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia are memory loss, disorientation and elopement, so the best environment for sufferers is one that mitigates these issues safely and effectively, yet non-intrusively. We see this ideally manifest in the Village in Langley, a setting that’s familiar and friendly, while smartly incorporating needed safety features. These include a fence around the perimeter and a blu-tooth-enabled security system that lets community staff know the whereabouts of any resident in real time, at any time. An important aspect of design for memory care is de-institutionalization and de-clinicalization of the care environment, inherent in the village layout that includes a general store, doctor’s office, hair salon, workshop, and more.

People live in colourful cottages here, attended by staff who are also suitably expert in their training and approach. The Village’s staff to resident ratio of 1:1 exceeds standards and is unheard of elsewhere in the industry. On top of all the above, it’s set in a quiet neighbourhood in one of the most beautiful cities in the country. We’ve certainly never seen anything like it before.
