Our Perspective

How we see The Vineyards Residence

The Vineyards is a thoroughly modern addition to retirement living options in Kelowna. Striking features of this community include expert care available, and the sense of spaciousness and newness that pervades this development. For Kelowna-area residents facing a need for some additional help with daily care, or families dealing with the progressive effects of dementia, The Vineyards promises exemplary care and community.

Step inside the main doors of the Vineyards, and you’re greeted by a soaring atrium. To us, it serves as a symbol of the aspirations behind this community. Space and modernity are hallmarks of this location. The kitchen alone feels like that of a major hotel. Hallways are roomy, providing optimal accessibility. Throughout the building, windows are sweepingly wide. Upper floors offer vistas of the nearby mountains that include views of Okanagan Lake. The Atrium Cafe will be a lovely meeting place, and residents can also enjoy local wines and craft beer in the Bluff Pub. Suites are replete with the latest accessibility and technology features. A byproduct of these features is that it’ll be very inviting for friends and family to visit.

All of those are nice to have, but what will really make this great is the vibrant living people will find here once they move in. That vibrancy will be anchored in a varied activity schedule, excellent staff, and the relationships that develop between people. One thing we’re impressed by is The Vineyards hiring of the cream of the crop in culinary and care staff.

What do you do differently or uniquely well?

At The Vineyards Residence, we embrace a multigenerational approach welcoming post-secondary, high school, and elementary students to engage with our residents.
Grade 2 and 3 local elementary students visit weekly to practice their reading with seniors and to teach/partake in an art activity.

High school students earn volunteer hours supporting residents in a variety of ways such as portering, assisting with activities, and spending quality one-on-one time.
Post-secondary students are living, volunteering and working in the residence.
The Vineyards Residence is a practicum site for various colleges and universities training healthcare professionals through co-operative education.

What supports do you offer residents as they adjust to life there?

A welcome gift awaits new residents when they move into The Vineyards Residence. Members of the Leadership Team eagerly look forward to meeting with residents to personally welcome them and the Resident Handbook covers many frequently asked questions. A friendly current resident may welcome newcomers to join them for meals or activities as they establish themselves in their new home. Meals preferences are reviewed with the Chef and all assisted living residents are encouraged to attend the monthly Assisted Living Resident Council meetings to hear the latest news and contribute to the lifestyle at The Vineyards Residence.

What might residents find surprising about your community?

Residents and their families are delighted with the multi-generational interactions.

The Vineyards Residence offers a phased-in approach to care where residents can age in place. A resident may require assisted living initially and can transition, as needed, by increasing care support to full memory care or long-term care.

The recreation calendar offers opportunities beyond bingo and movie nights. You can also find events such as “Painting and Pinot”, brain games using the Tovertafel Table, and organized outings to the places like the Aviation Museum, the Symphony and cheering on the UBCO Men’s Basketball Team!

What five facts about your community should people know?

• The Vineyards Residence offers Assisted Living, Memory Care and Enhanced Care.
• Pets are welcome and our Pet Therapy Program is popular with therapy dogs visiting almost every day. Recently, Memory Care Residents enjoyed hatching & nurturing chicks.
• Be sure to say hello to our post-secondary students who live in the building, volunteer with residents, and are also part-time employees.
• Service packages are customized to what you need.
• Tours are available weekdays and Saturdays. Call our Community Relations Manager at 236-361-0962 to arrange your personal tour today!

Reviews of The Vineyards Residence

What residents and their loved ones say about The Vineyards Residence in reviews.

Marc Stickle, family member

"We moved my father into the Vineyards 2 months ago when he was in the end stages of his 7 year battle with Prostate Cancer. He was requiring 24/7 care and TLC and was starting to deal with memory loss and confusion. Jenelle made the intake process seamless and the team on the third floor were amazing. Many of the staff are quite young and we weren't sure how it would go, but there is a kind and compassionate group of workers on that floor that loved on Dad and cared for him as well or better tha..."

Dementia & Memory Care (definition)
Cost from $8,900

We believe in the social model, which offers personalized care in a warm and friendly environment. The residence is designed in individual “neighbourhoods”, each with only 16 or 17 suites. Activity and common areas are located at the centre of every neighbourhood, so that dining and activities are only ever a few steps away. This also creates a welcoming sense reminiscent of a cozy home that allows for relationships with a smaller number of neighbours and caregivers, to support structure and familiarity. Using best practice dementia care and programming to assist residents as they age in place, this approach creates an environment in which all residents can flourish, in spite of mental or physical restrictions. A focus on what a resident can do as opposed to what they cannot, that will not only serve to simply maintain health, but improve overall wellbeing, helping to navigate the journey of physical or cognitive disabilities in the happiest, healthiest, most dignified manner possible.
