The Vineyards Residence is a state-of-the-art five storey, 134-suite residence, offering specialized, enhanced assisted living and memory care services to the Okanagan region.
The residence is designed so that it is broken up into distinct cottages, or neighbourhoods, each with only 16 or 17 suites. Activity/common areas are located at the centre of every neighbourhood, so that dining and activities are only ever a few doors away. This also creates a "small home environment" that allows for relationships with a smaller number of neighbours and caregivers, to support structure and familiarity.
