Services & Amenities
Good health is the state in which you are at your best, when your physical, mental and social well-being are well looked after. Our philosophy is based on individuals being able to “age in place.” As your needs change, you can change the services you use, without having to move out of your home. You are supported in maintaining your independence for as long as possible. Customized services are available on an a la carte basis, so that you only use the service you need, and you only pay for the services you use.
Just because you're aging doesn't mean you should stop living an active and vibrant lifestyle. Your dreams, passions and hobbies are as unique as you are. Courtyard Gardens is a place where you can continue to be yourself and keep growing as an individual. Being socially connected will enhance your ability to stay healthy in spirit, body, and mind. We have all sorts of activities to keep you engaged and happy.
When you call Courtyard Gardens home it’s not just because it's where you wake up every morning, but because you're surrounded by peace of mind and warmth from people who genuinely care about your well-being. We believe that you should feel safe and reassured when living here. All our staff are trained in specific safety and security procedures which means that your safety isn't treated like a job—it's woven into everything we do.
An important feature of living in a community like Courtyard Gardens is that your suite doesn’t have to be the only place where you spend your day. For your convenience we have all kinds of spaces and places outside your suite that you can access. These shared areas are for all to enjoy.
For most of us, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Everyone is welcomed with open arms and good food, and keeping in mind the tastes and preferences of both guests and family members alike is a pleasure. We agree that fussing over loved ones is a joyful part of creating a memorable meal, be it formal or informal. At Courtyard Gardens our chefs take care of everything so you can enjoy your time with friends and family. We're at your service to make sure your dining experience is a great one each and every meal.

Our apartments vary in size and location, but each has been designed specifically for mature residents. Special attention has been paid to details such as private baths and showers to ensure plenty of room for mobility. A kitchenette allows you to prepare snacks on your own. We offer round the clock staffing and emergency response.
We believe food is more than sustenance. Good food should be enjoyed with friends, made with fresh local ingredients, prepared from scratch by an experienced culinary team, and served by friendly and courteous dining staff who know your personal tastes.

What People Say About Us
I love volunteering at Courtyard Gardens because it gives me the opportunity to continue what I love doing in helping to offer support to the residents through socializing, listening and spending time with them. Volunteering creates meaningful connections that enhances both volunteers' and residents' quality of life. Courtyard is a very warm and caring facility that makes me feel very much part of the team.
When our parents moved into Courtyard Gardens about 8 months ago, my sister and I hoped that it would provide a safer and easier residence for our parents, particularly our mom who had had a couple of falls and could use some additional assistance. Not only has the move provided the physical supports we’d hoped, but it has exceeded our expectations in terms of the benefits to their lifestyle. They’ve made new friends, engaged much more socially, enjoyed the entertainment options and participated in the holiday celebrations. They are still excited by the ever-changing menu and weekly activities and we are thrilled to know they are enjoying where they are (safely) living. Thank you to all the staff of Courtyard Gardens who go above and beyond to create such a great place for people to live and thrive.
We just want to take the time to tell you how grateful we are for Courtyard Gardens and the staff and services there. Our parents moved to their suite in February at a time when my mom’s health was very precarious and my dad didn’t want to move. Initially it was scary and somewhat challenging, but now we know it was well worth it! These 5 months have passed very quickly and now my parents are doing so well we can’t believe it! The socializing and activities and the community overall have literally improved their health and happiness levels so much it brings a great peace of mind for us family members. The best part is that our parents are experiencing an unexpected new lease on life - happier, healthier and more engaged living! We love coming to happy hour and meals with them as the community is very welcoming. Thank you so much to all the staff and management for the personalized care, kindness, and services you provide! You make a difference in the world.
Thank you so very much for all your assistance and compassion given to my family. Everyone at Courtyard Gardens made us feel very welcome while mom made her new home. Ana & the rest of the staff thoroughly supported us, stepping up even further us as mom's health declined. Providing palliative care fulfilled mom's wish to pass away at home. I had viewed about a dozen facilities in the lower mainland - Courtyard Gardens surpasses them all! The building is always so clean & bright, the activities are abundant and the staff is outstanding! I'm proud to refer all my friends and family to your wonderful organization! Thank you for helping us through a most difficult time! Forever in our hearts!
