Property Highlights

More Information

Summerland Seniors Village is a campus of care, located in Summerland, next to the Medical Centre. This Okanagan-style seniors’ community offers  Residential Care Rooms, Assisted Living Suites and Independent Living suites. Set on a bluff with magnificent views of Lake Okanagan, community members enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. With the different levels of care, Summerland Seniors Village is able to offer residents the ability to ‘age in place’. This is also ideal for couples, enabling them to stay together in the same facility as their care needs change over the years.

Independent Living

Independent living is intended for functionally independent people who are capable of directing their own lives. These residents choose to be free of the home management duties and prefer the convenience of service in a social atmosphere that provides services and security. Residents direct their own lives, come and go as they please and participate in activities of their choosing within their community.

Services provided include a menu of optional fee-for-services from a base rate which includes meals, housekeeping, and recreational opportunities. 

Assisted Living

Assisted living 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 the Community Care and Assisted Living Act as prescribed services). Assisted living is intended for people who are able to make the range of decisions that allow them to live safely in a supportive, semi-independent environment.

In British Columbia, assisted living is regulated by the Community Care and Assisted Living Act and monitored by the provincial Assisted Living Registrar who:

  • administers the registration of all assisted living residences in British Columbia, whether they are publicly subsidized or private-pay.
  • establishes and administers health and safety standards, policies and procedures.
  • ensures timely and effective investigation of complaints about the health and safety of assisted living residents.
  • has authority to inspect residences if there is a concern about the health or safety of a resident.
  • refers issues that are not within the registrar’s jurisdiction to the appropriate authorities.
  • Coordinates investigation of complaints with the health authority Patient Care Quality Office.

Suites

  • Independent/Assisted Living suites are studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom suites – many with spectacular views.
  • All suites are well appointed and pleasingly decorated.
