Retirement residence brings community, belonging to seniors

At Chelsea Park, everyone belongs. With a mandate as simple as that, it is no wonder the independent senior retirement residence is one of the most sought after in the city.

“We are a warm and welcoming community,” said Karen Dupont, the manager at Chelsea Park. “People who want to enjoy the total community will not find a better setting.” Nestled in a quaint residential neighbourhood, seniors of Chelsea Park are perfectly situated to stroll through John Hendry Park, walk around Trout Lake, or meander down the block to the retail shops lining Commercial Drive.

Though, with organized activities filling calendars, home cooked meals and “sit and fit” exercise classes, seniors might be hard pressed to leave the comforts of their home. Whether it is Monday afternoon tea with Dianne the resident hostess, live entertainment with dinner, or bingo night, Chelsea Park seniors have every chance to live their lives to the fullest. Residents also have the choice of Nintendo Wii bowling, play tennis or golf indoors without leaving their home, and join in the exciting new Bocce games on the patio.  Gardening and card clubs, the games room, and QiGong relaxation exercises and the knitting social also ensure residents do not have to give up their hobbies and cherished pastimes.

“Our organized activities are a great opportunity for our residents to get to know one another,” Dupont added, “everyone here, from the residents to the staff, get along so well that we really do think of ourselves as family.”

Chelsea Park proudly earned the BC Seniors Living Association Seal of Approval in 2011. “Standards matter to us and the seal of approval ensures that safety and comfort are always prioritized,” Dupont explained. Offering comfort, security, and affordability without compromise, Chelsea Park can truly make seniors enjoy one of the best phases of life.
