About the Job.
The Vineyards Residence is a state-of-the-art five-story, 134-suite residence, offering specialized, enhanced assisted living and memory care services to the Okanagan region.
The residence is designed so that it is broken up into distinct cottages, or neighbourhoods, each with only 16 or 17 suites. Activity/common areas are located at the center of every neighborhood so that dining and activities are only ever a few doors away. This also creates a “small home environment” that allows for relationships with a smaller number of neighbors and caregivers, to support structure and familiarity.
In addition to all the typical amenities and common areas, the building includes very large suites, in-suite laundry, Surgically Clean Air (to limit the spread of airborne infections), memory boxes, a 5-story glass atrium, an in-house restaurant known as The Bluff Pub, The Vista Lounge and Dining Room, a gym, therapy rooms, a large bus for outings, balconies with expansive views, and a café- all of which are accessible to all residents.
