The Comfort Life report:
The Wexford

Our Perspective


Seniors find comfort in the surroundings and joy in the company of both staff and fellow seniors when they move into The Wexford. The warmth of the community makes this a beautiful place to live, notwithstanding the fact that it is indeed a beautifully landscaped, well-appointed retirement community. The always-sunny Tsawwassen weather combined with the quiet, peaceful exterior and interior of The Wexford make community living ideal here.

Driving up to The Wexford, you’ll be impressed by its combination brick and oak exterior. Walk in and you feel like you’re setting foot into a self-enclosed resort community where everyone is your age. There’s a friendly greeting at the door, and the main floor is posh throughout. The dining room and fitness rooms are two bright, main floor meeting places.

Those features make this a beautiful building but the striking thing about The Wexford is the allegiance and praise of seniors and their family. That comes from the thoroughness of service, the attention to detail here, and a thousand little extra touches. Even the housekeeping at The Wexford gets singled out by family members as “fantastic.” People here are treated like family.

Suites are just another special aspect of The Wexford, each very spacious, with a private patio and wide windows and a spacious open-concept kitchen. Residents take comfort in multi-tiered security that includes a 24 hour concierge, emergency call system, on top of the safety of the building and the location.

Reviews of The Wexford

Clara Penner, resident
"Lots of fun and lots of a delicious food. "

Susan Danyluk, family member
"My mother lived at The Wexford for a year before moving to full care late October 2019. Her time at The Wexford was an outstanding experience. The staff were caring, knowledgeable and always attentive. She enjoyed a bright, spacious 2 bed apartment that felt like a real home, something very important to mom after living 40 plus years in her previous home. While mom was initially concerned that it would be difficult to adjust, the Wexford management team made her feel exceptionally welcomed and p..."

Elisabeth, family member
"We can’t say enough about all the good people here … The social director is a phenomenal woman who gets them engaged in things they wouldn't normally partake in. She can get [my dad] to go dancing, he’s gone bowling … [He takes part in] the fitness group that’s here ...   For me, the advantage of having my dad in place like the Wexford is that I know that he’s in a safe community, he’s well fed, meals are like a cruise ship … Even though I’m not there [all the time] I always k..."

Testimonials and Stories

  • What Bria Resident's Say: Desley's Story

    I’m Desley Cook, and I’m 86 years, 87 in July. And I live at The Wexford, and I’m very happy with being here. It’s like a home away from home. 

    The girls downstairs are all wonderful; they take good care of us. They always have open arms for us and make us feel wanted. The chef is really nice, and he serves us. If we don’t like what we get, we can ask for something different. 

    We have wonderful entertainment here. We have sing-alongs, and we dance, and we do all these crazy things old people aren’t supposed to do, but we do. I just appreciate it all.

    You can be busy all day, or you can go to your room and close it and be private. And that’s another thing I like, you don’t feel obligated to be out and doing things, and that’s nice.

    I think it’s the freedom and yet you feel secure. You know that going to bed at night, you’re secure. If you don’t feel well, we have buttons all over the place, and you can press them; they can get you an ambulance or whatever you need. And they know what they’re doing. That’s what I like.

    We have all the securities we need here. When I go to bed at night I feel safe, I just turn my lights off and that’ sit. I feel safe at all times. And that’s of great importance to an older person.

Jane Bryce

Hi, my name is Jane, and I've been the General Manager at The Wexford since March 2020, and have been part of the Bria Communities family for almost nine years. 

You'll love life at The Wexford. With only 65 suites, we are a small, close-knit community that cares for each other and has a ton of fun. Our recreation team is second to none when it comes to planning parties, events and entertainment. And you'll have the opportunity to enjoy all Tsawwassen as you run errands in our courtesy shuttle or take day trips on our Bria Bus.

Our red seal chef and his team are making amazing, fresh food in our kitchens every day, with lots of healthy choices and tasty desserts for those with a sweet tooth. You won't want to miss our special occasion brunches, and you'll want to invite your family to join you for the best brunch in town!
