COVID-19 Information

Chelsea Park has been COVID-free since the start-up of the pandemic in early 2020 thanks to our dedicated staff and very cooperative residents and their loving families.
Everyone at Chelsea Park has been doubled vaccinated. We do have visitor restrictions/rules about entering the building if you are sick or have been in contact with anyone who has been sick, and a COVID assessment check list asking about travel and symptoms for all visitors and staff. Visitors are required to wear masks when entering the building and in all common areas and all residents and staff are continuing to wear masks in all of our common areas. Our activities have started up again and everyone has returned to the dining room which makes us all happy.
Our Staff are diligently cleaning and sanitizing all common areas and touch surfaces many times a day. We receive information weekly and sometimes daily from the Ministry of Health and BC Seniors Living Association as to how to proceed and we are following the guidelines and regulations set in place by the Provincial Ministry of Health for Long Term Care and Assisted Living Residences.
We also provide updates and reminders for our residents to keep everyone on track in remaining safe and contributing to the solution.

Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review


Set foot in Chelsea Park, and the first thing you hear will likely be laughter. It’s a special place where residents are comfortable and genuine with each other. The emphasis here is on coziness. You’ll find home-cooked meals and afternoon tea parties are an important part of life. For such an affordable community, the list of activities is extensive. There are outings, live entertainment, Bingo, tennis and golf, gardening clubs, card games, exercise classes... and the list goes on.

Just outside the community you’ll also find some wonderful features. Expansive Trout Lake park is right across the street, with a variety of walking trails and even a beach. There’s a community center there, and down the street on Commercial Drive/Victoria Drive there’re a variety of shops. You can live a full life here, and we might argue that Chelsea Park offers some of the best value we’ve seen in a retirement home.

        At Chelsea Park everyone belongs.  When you are in a warm, intimate environment with people who care about one another, you take in the full experience we have here at Chelsea Park. Our boutique residence has a homelike ambience where we serve home cooked up-scale comfort food and our staff are driven by the goal to provide safe, affordable, and comfortable housing.  They abide by these principles by making sure there is enough time to listen and chat, by organizing events and arranging additional support services when needed, and by offering 24-hr emergency response, along with many other safety features.  Our commitment to these values earned us the BC Seniors Living Association Seal of Approval in 2011 and we've continued achieving these standards through the past 10 years.  We believe the community connection is important in keeping our seniors interested and engaged. Our vision is to create opportunities for serenity and socialization. We value and support each individual's dignity and privacy and we value the benefits that a commitment to continuous improvement brings to the service we provide.  People who want to enjoy the benefits of a total community will not find a better setting.
