What People Say About Us
I spent 14 months, with friends, checking out retirement or assisted living homes in the Metro Vancouver area since I planned to sell my condo and wanted to give up my car, which I used only for shopping and other errands. When I discovered Thornebridge gardens, all my concerns were met. A thoroughly beautiful park-like residence, it is within a ten minute walk to every business/medical/shopping center establishment one could wish for, and a bus on the corner for longer journeys. The meals are varied and a delight, including those in the Bistro, and the quality entertainment keeps one occupied from morning to night. Staff are thoroughly professional and friendly as are the residents. I wish I had come here when it first opened.
