Maple Ridge Seniors Village (MRSV) is a complete community with varying levels of accommodation and assistance, from Independent Living to Assisted Living to Residential Care. Conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood of Maple Ridge it is close to shops, a library, community center and other amenities. With the different levels of accommodation and assistance, MRSV is able to offer seniors the possibility to ‘age in place’. This is ideal for couples, enabling them to stay together in the same building as their care needs change over the years. Located near Vancouver, BC, it’s the perfect place for seniors of all ages to receive the level of care they need, with the level of independence they desire!
Independent and Assisted Living (IL/AL)
Independent living (IL) is intended for self-sufficient people who are capable of directing their own lives. These tenants choose to be free of all the home management chores and prefer the convenience of services and security in a social atmosphere. Tenants direct their own lives, come and go as they please and participate in activities of their choosing within the MRSV community. Services provided include a menu of optional fee-for-services from a base rate which include meals, housekeeping, and recreational opportunities.
Assisted living (AL) is the combination of housing, hospitality services and one or two personal assistance services, such as regular assistance with activities of daily living or medication services (referred to in Community Care and Assisted Living Act the as prescribed services). AL is ideal for tenants who wish to maintain their independence, knowing assistance is available when they need it. AL tenants need to be self-directing their care and mobile as defined by using a walker and/or wheelchair as long as they are able to transfer to a bed or chair. This option is ideal for couples as well as singles.
