Discovering Dwelling – My Expertise Becoming a member of a VRS Seniors Neighborhood in Kelowna – Kelowna Capital Information
By Anita Courtney, a resident of Orchard Gardens Seniors Community in Kelowna
My name is Anita Courtney and I have lived in the Orchard Gardens Seniors Community in Kelowna for a little over 2 years. I was both humble and excited to be able to speak publicly about my decision to join this fellowship.
Before I got to Orchard Gardens, I suffered a stroke that made it impossible for me to carry out the chores of daily living. Like many seniors, I was very reluctant to trade my independent life for a life that I would now live in a “home” for the elderly. With a healthy persuasiveness from my children, I am grateful to have found my place in a community that is a home, but has become my home in the truest sense of the word!
I grew up in Kelowna and have devoted more than 30 years of my life to a career in nursing. It was the most rewarding experience I could ever hope for. After working in nursing, I can fully appreciate the many moving parts of the senior housing industry and the need to build and maintain a community like Orchard Gardens.
The Orchard Gardens Seniors Community in Kelowna is a home in the true sense of the word!
My absolute favorite part of life here is the safety component, especially in these pandemic times. In Orchard Gardens, despite Covid, residents enjoy a communal lifestyle that allows them to forget from time to time the pandemic that is currently ravaging all around us. The management and staff are approachable and always put our needs and safety at the forefront of their agenda – this is our home and they really offer the services that make us feel special.
After two wonderful years at Orchard Gardens, I have made many meaningful human connections and can only say, “Don’t wait too long!” To those of you who stand by the fence and are afraid of moving to a senior citizen’s apartment, “Don’t wait too long!” Talk to the friendly ones Come to Orchard Gardens and discover the difference a supportive community like ours makes while you enjoy the life you deserve.
We look forward to meeting you!
