What is Community Living?
They say it takes a village to raise a child and we say it takes a community to age successfully. The Cherish at Central Park community is a group of people who are there for us when we need love, support and encouragement – especially now, when social interactions are restricted.
Safety is one of the basic building blocks of Community Living and something we take seriously, always. In addition to our annual “flu season” protocols – because every flu is a bad flu for seniors – we have taken extraordinary measures to ensure everyone stays safe through the pandemic. While it has changed a lot of what we do at Cherish, we are all working together to keep spirits up, engage in safe social activities and keep life as normal as possible. Our New Year’s Eve entertainer (from behind plexi-glass) was impressed by the extravagant meal and safe festivities. Residents enjoyed perfectly cooked prime rib with a full lobster tail, champagne, party hats and noise makers – and it was LOUD when we rang in the New Year at 7pm!
Cherish at Central Park is an inter-generational community with people aged 55 to 105. Everyone is provided with the opportunity to do what they can and participate, as little or as much as they like. Cherish is there to help people help themselves, to protect and nurture their independence with kindness and caring. Resident volunteers connect with and support each other.
The Cherish Way turns forgotten souls into confident contributors overcoming the three plagues of aging; loneliness, helplessness and boredom.
While we were happy to host a mobile dental clinic, this service at Cherish has been temporarily suspended. Call Danielle directly at 250-884-9333 to book your appointment!
Blood Pressure Clinic
Our blood pressure clinic has been temporarily closed to the public.
What is the Cherish Way?
The Cherish Way, founded in 2005, is all about you. The Cherish Way is original and unique to Cherish. It started with the input of over 400 seniors that were not satisfied with traditional seniors housing. They wanted, and we believe they deserve, better!
How do we make our residents feel? Their top 5 words: connected, loved, safe, happy and optimistic. Pets are welcome too!
The Cherish Way continues to grow and evolve with the input of the people that live with us today! Age-in-place with Open Hearts Companions and Island Health onsite for your future needs.
Cherish has won numerous awards, being one of the first BC Senior Living Association Gold Seal buildings in Victoria and called “highly innovative”, a “Blue Ocean” company and the “future of senior living”. If you want to be part of something “better” come by to learn more. We would love to show you around!
We believe our homes contribute to our Resident’s overall well being – mind, body and spirit.
Start each day with a positive experience enjoying freshly ground coffee and home made baked goods still warm from the oven with friends. Forget about the work and gloomy reminders of things that “have to” be done; the gutters, the windows, the paint, the deck, oh and yes, the yard too! Why be a slave to your house?
If you are ready to have your home serve you, and not the other way around, then consider Cherish. Our Community of friendly caring people is a good place, a place where people choose to live. It’s the real way to be independent. Our age-in-place community supports your independence today and considers your needs for tomorrow.
Call or come by to see what Community Living is all about. It was designed with you in mind.
My best to you,
Micky Fleming, CPA, CGA
President and CEO
