These Retirement Communities Are Unlike Anything You’ve Seen

Whether you want British Columbia or Ontario to be your home base, you’ll find a wellness-focused senior living community with health, community and joy at its core.

When it comes to creating retirement communities for independent adults, Tapestry does things a little differently. With two properties in Vancouver and one in Etobicoke, Ont., (plus a brand-new Victoria, BC location that’s now selling and leasing), Tapestry excels at creating vibrant, connected communities that foster active living, fulfilling relationships and overall wellness for a healthier, happier life.

Here’s how Tapestry at Wesbrook Village, Tapestry at Arbutus Walk (both in Vancouver) and Tapestry at Village Gate West (in Etobicoke) do it better.

1. Tapestry’s retirement communities are award-winning.

The ICAA NuStep Beacon Award recognizes the top 25 “Best in Wellness” senior living communities in North America. In 2021, all three properties made the list for at least the second year in a row. (Tapestry at Wesbrook Village was honoured for a third year!) This notable award goes to communities that make wellness their mission and also benefit everyone who lives and works there.

2. Everything they do is anchored by the Seven Dimensions of Wellness.

“Everything about Tapestry is focused on creating a wellness-inspired environment,” says Mark Andrew, Senior Vice President, Tapestry. “From our thoughtfully designed community and our unique wellness programs and services to our nutritious and delicious menu options, we offer residents the flexibility and independence to direct their own interests and determine how they want to live and engage.”

The Seven Dimensions of Wellness are emotional, physical, intellectual, social, spiritual, vocational and environmental. And at Tapestry’s properties, each element is carefully considered. Some wellness highlights include:

  • Gorgeous suites that are pet-friendly.
  • Amenities that range from an expansive gym (with fitness classes), theatre and demonstration kitchen to a media room and library.
  • Community events that foster connection, from wine tastings and educational seminars to Wii bowling tournaments.
  • Opportunities to work with local environmental groups and philanthropic organizations to better the wider community.

3. Their culinary offerings are inspired.

No matter which community you choose, you’ll find a full-service restaurant and a pub with professional chefs to create nutritious meals with fresh local and sustainable ingredients. The balanced approach to meal preparation ensures that you’re getting the high-quality proteins and plant-based nutrients your body craves. And if you prefer to cook for yourself, that’s an option, too! All suites feature a full, modern kitchen where you can prepare your favourite dishes for yourself and your loved ones.
