Earlier this summer, Tapestry was thrilled to open its Presentation Centre for our newest active aging community, Tapestry at Victoria Harbour. Located steps from Beacon Hill Park and downtown, Tapestry at Victoria Harbour offers residents unlimited opportunities to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle and improve their physical, mental and social well-being.
Tapestry has had strong interest in our new community on beautiful Vancouver Island as individuals consider the opportunity to become part of a vibrant and connected community for independent adults.
Like other Tapestry communities in Vancouver and Toronto, Tapestry at Victoria Harbour will offer a unique community experience given our focus on wellness. Tapestry embeds wellness into its culture creating a holistic experience aligned to the 7 Dimensions of Wellness that allows individuals to remain independent and live a longer life while fulfilling their goals and purpose.
Tapestry’s focus on wellness is science-based. Research confirms that a holistic approach to wellness is particularly important in terms of improving life satisfaction, decreasing social isolation, and maintaining or improving cognitive and physical health. Harvard and Yale researchers have confirmed that those with a more positive outlook on aging live an average of 7.5 years longer than those with more negative views.
With the COVID-19 pandemic an ongoing societal reality, some wonder whether a move to an independent living community like Tapestry makes sense. “The time has never been better,” says Mark Andrew, Senior Vice President, challenging the question of timing. “During the evolving pandemic, Tapestry residents have continued to enjoy programs and services to maintain their wellness. They have been able to avoid the daily stresses of cooking, cleaning and grocery shopping. Most importantly, they have benefitted from community connection and vibrancy, avoiding the social isolation that has negatively impacted people of all ages.”
“At Tapestry, our residents have continued to live their lives, pursue their passions and follow their wellness roadmap. While the journey has looked different given the reality of our new normal, the path has been clear and focused,” adds Mark.
Barry Wills also believes the time to consider Tapestry is now. A long-time Victoria resident, Barry brings more than 20 years of senior management experience and a passion for service
excellence to his new role as General Manager.
“I’m beyond excited to be leading the opening of Tapestry’s newest community,” says Barry, who embodies Tapestry’s focus on wellness as a cross-fit instructor, volunteer firefighter and minor hockey coach. “It’s a pleasure to work alongside the sales team, meet many of our interested prospective community members and discuss why Tapestry is the perfect choice for their next home.”
