Site Highlights

Located in beautiful Chilliwack, The Waverly is one of Retirement Concepts original properties. In 2004, we added 66 suites (Independent Living and Assisted Living) to our existing 53 residential care rooms, providing a true Campus of Care, where seniors are able to ‘age in place’. This is an ideal situation for couples, enabling them to stay together in the same building as their care needs change over the years.

Independent Living

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 their Waverly community.

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

Assisted Living

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). 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.

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.
