The holidays are a joyful, yet sensitive time for many of our residents. In later life, the holiday season is a mix of emotions. We have lost so many dear friends, family, and loved ones, but we still celebrate the present by connecting and sharing kind words with each other – all while reflecting on joyful memories in our minds.

At VRS Seniors Communities, we appreciate this delicate balance of emotions; and it is a particular joy to see our residents, who have developed so many new friendships within our communities know that they are not alone. Not only do they have each other, but they also have our supportive team to enjoy seasonal activities with!

Here are some quotes from the residents at Lakeside Gardens in Nanaimo:

“The staff here at Lakeside are wonderful! I told my family that I am staying here for Christmas. They weren’t happy with me, but I said they can come visit me here.” – Betty

“When I walked in the front doors at Lakeside Gardens, I liked it right away. It had a warm and inviting feeling. Last year, when I moved in, there were Covid restrictions in place and we socialized very little, but the staff were great then and still are now. This year, Lakeside is decorated amazingly! And all the activities planned make things brighter and happier for everyone. Since moving here, I feel relaxed – I am no longer stressed!” – Sheila

“I don’t have to worry about Christmas shopping, baking, and all the preparation I did as a housewife – although I did love doing all that. Now I can sit back and enjoy it here at Lakeside. I have more friends than I did before!“ – Inge

“I am comfortable staying here for Christmas; it’s a chosen family! I enjoy the music we have during the holiday season and the staff are excellent.“ – Eileen
