Registered under the Assisted Living Registrar, Redwood Residence is home to 14 residents.
Redwood Residences – Summerland, has been created by dedicated and caring individuals whose focus is to extend and enhance the quality of life of seniors who require both a safe environment and assistance with their Activities of Daily Living, yet do not wish to give up their independence or choice. At Redwood, our primary motivation has always been to assist in improving their Quality Of Life (QOL). Many of our residents show a high level of improvement in their physical and psychological health following their admission to the residence.
It is our opinion that the best way to comprehend the quality of housing and care being received is to look at the residents. Our tenants are not only happy, secure, and comfortable, but have also shown significant improvements in their health, well-being and quality of life. Our atmosphere is pleasant, and has been described by many, including those who are residents, as a cheerful family home. Our commitment is to provide a caring, supportive, safe, home-like environment allowing residents to achieve their optimal level of functional ability.
Our residents show considerable improvements in all aspects of their lives after moving into Redwood. We feel we have increased both their quality of life as well as their length of remaining life. For this reason, as well as the fact that relocation is a stressful disruption in a senior’s life many spouses request that the family member stay as long as they can at our residences. We have attempted to honor these requests that satisfies the family, resident, community and the health care system.
We attribute these improvements primarily to Staff skills, the engaging relationships they establish with the residents and families, our nutritious meals prepared by a ‘Red Seal Chef’ and overall the pleasant and calming environment at the residence (Please see the affidavits attached from families at our other residence in Quesnel, BC).
We operate our residences with passion and individualized style. We have worked hard to create the Residence in its present state, and it is our intention to continue to provide more of what we feel is the very best in comfort and care our residences has to offer.
