How we see Chelsea Park
Among Vancouver retirement homes, Chelsea Park is a uniquely homey, comfortable environment offering striking value for anyone 55 and older. It’s a boutique-style retirement community, less formal than some other retirement residences, but with much of the vibrancy you’ll find in more expensive communities. With respect to the activities and amenities, you’ll find everything you need to make days complete.
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.

Chelsea Park is the solution for active seniors seeking more support with daily living while maintaining their independence. Chelsea Park provides seniors with a home that will grant them independence, safe social surroundings, nourishment, and assistance with their daily living needs. Even though they will have their own personal living accommodations, staff and a home environment will be just outside their door ensuring that their physical and mental well-being is maintained. Residents will interact with others at meal and activity times ensuring that there will be opportunities to forge new friendships.
As well as the many benefits living at Chelsea Park provides, we also celebrate many other events such as:
No matter who we work with, our primary goal is to provide everyone with safe, clean, affordable housing at reasonable rates.

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.
