Cherish Community Living


Independent Living One and Two Bedroom Rental Suites, One left with in-suite laundry!

Come enjoy the ease of all-inclusive living in the best location in the City. 

Our rental accommodation package covers all of the bases, giving you the time to make new friends, go for a stroll with the grandkids down to the fishing pier or just laze around in the courtyard. Someone else looks after the cooking and the cleaning, the maintenance and the management. We take care of the work.

Good nutrition is important, especially as we age. As we get older our bodies no longer retain vitamins and minerals as they did when we were younger, making it much more important to have good healthy food for every meal. Our Red Seal chefs are proud to offer savory home made meals for lunch and dinner daily. No packages, powders or preservatives. Just good home made meals. See us for a sample menu.  

Your montly rental fee includes weekly housekeeping with fresh linens and bedmaking, leaving you time to take an art class or, hmmm, what would you like to do? We'd like to know. Speaking of things to do, there are so many choices that it might be hard to fit everything into your schedule. One of everyone's favourites is Happy Hour on the patio in the summer or in the Jazz Bistro when its nice to be inside. The guided exercise classes are very popular too. Not to worry about keeping it all straight as the monthly Leisure Calender will let you plan your days. 

The workshop will be set up for silver smithing and wood working. Do you like gardening? The raised garden beds in the courtyard are for you then. Our bus will make scheduled trips for appointments weekly. Sometimes it will be taking finely dressed ladies and gentlemen to the Chemainus Theatre. Or maybe the guys would like to go to the Air Museum in Sidney, just let us know.

Licensed subsidized home care providers are available for you as your needs change in the privacy of your own suite (your cost). Your care is personal and arranged directly between you and the Island Health Authority. 

Our suites are unfurnished with well designed space for your belongings. Our one bedroom suites range from 520 square feet to 600 square feet, with the largest having a second balcony off the bedroom. Our two bedroom suites offer a "California" floor plan with two generously sized bathrooms. Each suite has a Tea Kitchen with an apartment sized fridge with separate freezer, individually controlled heat, balcony or patio, and in-suite storage including a linen closet, entry coat closet and storage room. We don't call the storage room a den as some others do because it is small, averaging about 25 square feet. But necessity is the mother of invention, and these in-suite "storage" rooms have been used as sewing rooms, wine making rooms, offices and a play room for the great grandkids. Who knew? That's up to you.

Oh, and we are pet friendly (some restrictions apply). They are part of the family too!
