Vernon retirement home holding open house

Orchard Valley will open doors to the public on Saturday, Sept. 21

Orchard Valley Retirement Residence in Vernon will hold an open house on Saturday.

From 1-4 p.m., people are invited to take personal tours the residence and enjoy some refreshments and prizes.

“It’s a great time to move in, especially with winter approaching. It’s important to stay social and active as we age, and Orchard Valley offers every opportunity to connect with others in a fun, supportive environment,” retirement residence general manager Dan Grant said.

Bachelor, single- and two-bedroom suites are available.

“The moment I first walked into Orchard Valley with my mother, we were pleasantly greeted and amazed at the homey feeling we got,” said Anthony, the son of a current resident.

“The warm ambience, daily activities provided, combined with the smiles on the faces of the residents we spoke with and staff made our experience one we will remember and share with others.”

Amenities at Orchard Valley include meals and dining rooms, a wellness gym and spa, frequent excursions, transportation and 24/7 emergency response. The suits are also pet-friendly.

Those who can’t attend the open house are invited to bring a friend for a lunch prepared by the resident culinary team at a later date.

For more information about the open house, contact Grant at or Jennifer Strachan at Call 250-309-7573.
