Berwick Royal Oak Managers and staff contributed gift baskets towards our Christmas Silent Auction which supports the Victoria Hospice Society. This year with only 59 items we raised $2,333. We also had one resident that sponsored $250 to purchase additional baskets to be included in the Auction.
Many thanks to our residents, family, friends and staff for bidding on all of these items.
“Active retirement living is a growing trend in Canada and it has come to Campbell River.”
“There are 18 tenants already moved into the newest addition to the downtown core.”
“There is a real sense of ongoing independence here. Some places talk about it, but it’s really happening here. My parents have choices, they can live their own lives, but have the help that they want.”
“Berwick is home for my mother. It’s everything that she could possibly want. It has everything she wants and stuff that she didn’t even know she wanted.”
“Our difference is all around treating residents with respect, really getting to know them individually and tailoring to their needs.”
“The big thing here is the staff. The waiters and waitresses – they are so good with elderly people. They are so patient. The staff are so marvelous. It’s not like you are institutional, they are so warm with you. You’re not a number sitting at a table at all. It’s just not like that here.”
“This staff here is just fabulous. Fabulous. If there is a heaven on the planet, then I’m sitting in it. I tell people that are visiting or touring here, ‘If you join us, you’ll never regret it.’”
“All of a sudden, here, we have this great big family.”
“One thing that I have appreciated with Berwick as a family member is how open and approachable they are; how much they listen to feedback, and are willing to listen to feedback. Listening to individual needs and sitting down with us, and talking about our parents, and what their individual needs are.”
