The Heritage is a place where you can continue to be you, and continue to grow as an individual by being socially connected and challenged in spirit, body, and mind.
The Heritage is a place you can call home; not 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.
If your home had everything you needed at your fingertips, combined with an engaging social calendar, you'd never want to leave. That's how we approach our communities, and The Heritage is without exception. Fulfilling your spirit, body, and mind means challenging yourself and bettering yourself. So, try aquafit in our heated saltwater pool, or a game of golf on our outdoor putting green and when you're done, relax with friends by our fireplace with live entertainment, or a massage in our spa.
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.

What People Say About Us
At The Heritage, we appreciate and value the relationships that enhance the lives of our residents and
the community in which we live.
The charity, Sing For Your Life is an organization that we support and that in turn supports our residents,
too. Their core program is called Silver Song Group. It’s 90-minutes, weekly, of participatory-singing and
music-making with proven wellness benefits.
We provide meeting space for Silver Song Group and our residents and community members participate
together. The program is designed to: enhance breathing, stimulate fine and grand motor skills and aid
memory through reminisce activities. It’s also lots of fun!
The Heritage is pleased to collaborate with Sing For Your Life to make this wonderful program available
in West Kelowna. We also partner with the charity to help them with essential fundraising. Why not pop
in and enjoy Silver Song Group at The Heritage; it’s held on Wednesdays 10-11:30am from September to
May. It’s free to attend and no registration is required.
The Heritage held a raffle for The Therapeutic Lake Cruise Society. Here our happy winners received their prize, a beautiful handmade quilt. The Cruise society is a non-profit organization that our residence have had the pleasure of enjoying many times throughout the summer. Wheelchair access makes this a worry- free pleasurable experience for all.
