Hear what these seniors have to say about resort-style living in a Berwick Retirement Community

The freedom to come and go, the security of knowing care is nearby

Maggie was living up-Island when Berwick Retirement Communities started construction on a new resort-style retirement community in her neighbourhood. She toured the gorgeous facility but wasn’t quite ready to make the move — Maggie has a passion for gardening, and didn’t want to leave her property behind.

Soon after her opinion changed — the Berwick garden club had grown deep roots, and Maggie was ready to leave behind her property’s repairs, taxes and other chores. At Berwick she has the freedom to come and go, and the opportunity to grow new friendships alongside thriving tomato plants!

Ed and Janet had a similar feeling when they moved in. They didn’t even know Berwick was an option until their doctor mentioned it, and now they love their new freedom.

“Some people think it’s expensive to live at Berwick, but when you look at all the costs combined, there’s really not much difference. We don’t have to pay for groceries, cable, insurance or taxes,” Ed says. “The best thing about living here is not having to do all the work of keeping up a home. We get to relax and come and go as we please, and activities are available if we want.”

Now’s your chance to embrace the lifestyle in a new Berwick community

In the spring of 2022, Berwick Parksville will be welcoming residents to a new standard of living they can call home. Every Berwick is inspired by the community it’s in, and Berwick Parksville is no different. The resort-style community includes a rooftop patio and lounge, expansive outdoor spaces for scenic leisure walks, gardening, pickleball, lawn bowling and even a separate art pavilion.

“The finishing and decor in every Berwick is carefully thought out for years in advance — some provided by local artists and some that offer rich history. Berwick Parksville is inspired by contemporary west coast design and Parksville’s crisp white sand beaches,” says Corinna Ludovici, Community Relations Manager at Berwick Parksville. “Each suite is spacious, with large windows and balconies welcoming in lots of natural light and fresh air. Extra safety features in place allow for peace of mind. Some suites will capture incredible ocean or mountain views, and you can have Fido right beside you as we are pet friendly too!”

Red Seal chefs ensure a delicious dining experience every day, whether you choose a casual grab-and-go, formal dining or Berwick Parksville’s authentic pub. Relax with the convenience of weekly housekeeping and enhanced living services. Enjoy the flexibility to join in on programs and events or find that quiet corner in the library.
