What People Say About Us
Bright, clean, spacious, decoratively homey and friendly…this was my first impression as a visitor to Evergreen Retirement Community six years ago. It is also my lasting impression of my Evergreen home that offers so much, both practical and appealing: a spacious, lovely dining room looking out onto a patio and attractive garden; the “Windows Bar”, Café, hairdresser and salon, pool and library. There are exercise, game, craft and computer rooms and a “Fireside Lounge” – also a theatre which is used for church services as well. Especially popular with visiting family and friends is the “Fifties Diner” and bowling alley. Besides provision for underground parking, the Evergreen van transports residents to weekly medical and dental appointments, including shopping to malls in the area and the Evergreen bus is used for special outings. Weekly sing alongs and visiting musical entertainers provide fun and bring joy to the day; and the in-house chef prepares not only nutritious, but also flavouful daily meals with variety and pleasing presentation. A reassurance to know, too, there are 24 hour PSWs and a once per week visiting doctor, as well as safety measures in each apartment and for each resident. So you can comfortably enjoy as much social interaction or quiet relaxation in the attractive apartment of your choice. Six years later, I have now built good memories and treasured relationships with both staff and residents.
Knowing that my mom and all of the residence in Evergreen are so well taken care of reassured me that they are in the best Retirement home.
Your consistency in care and services and the way you all interact with the residence is so amazing and so appreciated.
Thank you for your awesome care for my mom, my in-laws and for all the residence in Evergreen.
In my book you are # 1.
My family and I feel deeply blessed to have been able to relocate my father to Evergreen. Throughout the process the management team went far above and beyond at every turn to help us. This was especially appreciated given Covid 19. They were patient, kind and empathetic, offering guidance and help the likes of which we had never experienced elsewhere. My father regularly tells me that he cannot get over his good fortune moving to Evergreen and comments always on how kind all of the staff are and how lovely the other residents are.
It is without hesitation that I would recommend Evergreen to anyone considering moving into an Independent Living residence.
May 2021 - We’ve known about Evergreen for years. We had a house in the neighborhood where it was being built, and prior to its opening, local homeowners were invited in for a personal tour. We had no one among our friends or family who lived in a retirement community, so we didn’t know what to expect. The facility was simply stunning! Most surprising was the range of attractive and varied spaces for all sorts of activities from the quiet (a library) to the athletic (a bowling alley and a swimming pool) to the social (a central gathering place and a pub). We toured a variety of accommodations - condominiums, independent apartments, and assisted living units.
Although that was more than ten years ago, we never forgot. When my Mom turned 90 a couple of years ago and was considering a move from her own apartment to a more supportive environment, we immediately thought of Evergreen. We had another tour and were thrilled to find that its early promise was more than fulfilled.
This time there was a new element, though – the people. We had a chance to meet the folks who work there and see the ones who live there, too. There is no mistaking the warmth, friendliness, and trust that is shared between the residents and staff as they move through the public spaces. And everywhere you look there are attractive little touches - from seasonal floral arrangements to special decorations, signs, and messages.
Mom moved in two years ago and we thank the stars that she was already settled in her new home before the pandemic started. She couldn’t be in a safer, more nurturing space. Despite the many restrictions, Evergreen always finds a way to keep the residents healthy, cheerful and engaged. Staff delivered mini wine and cheese trays to resident’s rooms some afternoons, and even hired a band to perform outside one sunny day so people could listen from their windows and balconies.
Mom’s needs continue to evolve, and Evergreen’s support keeps pace. For example, she used to enjoy doing her own laundry in the machines down the hall, but now prefers to have Evergreen take care of this for her. All of the staff are simply terrific, and we especially appreciate our day-to-day collaboration with Brigitta and with Sharlette.
Today, the residents of Evergreen remain safe and healthy. Now that we are retired and getting on a bit ourselves, we sometimes begin a sentence with “When we move to Evergreen…”
Our heartfelt thanks to all the wonderful, caring people at Evergreen!
Evergreen is a welcoming and supportive community. My friend has been living there for just under a year and is constantly amazed by how friendly all the staff have been and remarks how everyone knows who she is and calls her by name. They have even gotten to know her cat! 😊
The staff have gone out of their way to ensure that my friend is comfortable and have initiated some more difficult conversations with consideration and support. They have worked to keep her living as independently as possible and the staff are open to suggestions. The team has worked diligently throughout Covid to maintain a safe and protected environment for their residents, staff and visitors/family members. The email updates have been a source of assurance.
