You could win one year of FREE living at one of B.C’s best boutique retirement communities

“When a new resident moves in, the comment we always hear is ‘I wish I had moved in sooner.’”
Independent living for West Coast seniors at Terraces on Seventh

Retirement marks the start of an exciting new chapter for those who are ready and willing to embrace life’s next adventures. During these golden years, seniors have the opportunity to ‘begin again’ and live their lives to the fullest, however that may look like to them.

For some, that means engaging in long-held interests, discovering brand new hobbies, and forming valuable friendships. And it’s these very concepts that independent living retirement communities are all about providing for their residents. 

Independent living communities are designed for seniors who are fully independent, but would like to live in a social environment with avenues for connection and engagement during their retirement years. 

Terraces on Seventh in Vancouver’s South Granville and Fairview area is one example of one of those dynamic living communities. 

Located in the heart of Granville Street, the boutique retirement community offers both independent living options for residents. In addition to the stunning views of the surrounding ocean and mountains and vast array of shops and services in the neighbourhood, Terraces offers their community members plenty of freedom and choice through fulfilling experiences that tap into their passions for knowledge, creativity, fun, and camaraderie. 

“When a new resident moves in, the comment we always hear is ‘I wish I had moved in sooner,’” shares Rob Akimow, Director of Sales and Marketing of West Coast Seniors Housing Management. “We see folks who previously may have been feeling isolated or lonely build new friendships in their new community — it’s really quite heartwarming.”

Terraces on Seventh offers an endless amount of enriching daily programs and activities. Their residents can experience their shared special interests together, including yoga, tai chi, musical theatre performances, knitting, baking, board games, discussion groups, and much more. 

As well, their residents are known to take an active role in cultivating a shared sense of community.

Mrs. Joy Gaze, a seasoned community theatre performer, has helped to establish and organize a variety of creative programs, such as talent nights and a charitable knitting group called In Stitches.

Long-time Vancouver resident Muriel Morris is also enjoying the sense of community at Terraces, where there is no shortage of opportunities to keep her and other fellow residents occupied. 

“I always have a book going and staying active is very important to me,” shares Muriel.

Andrée Lajoie, another resident at Terraces, sums up the retirement living experience perfectly: “There’s so much to do here and such a great group of residents and staff. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!”

It’s no wonder that residents Terraces on Seventh proudly call this lively living community their home.
