Tapestry at Wesbrook Village garnered international attention by placing among the top three communities in the 2020 “Spirit Award” competition sponsored by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA). Available to all North American communities, this program is designed to recognize the importance of seniors living an active and healthy lifestyle in a community environment.
Tapestry was selected for this honour by showcasing its commitment to wellness, and creating an active and vibrant community for its residents. “At Tapestry, we’re focused on wellness every day of the year,” says Natalie Toews Wallace, Wellness Supervisor. “Events like Spirit Week give us the opportunity to ramp-up our efforts to strengthen participation and encourage interest in new activities.”
Tapestry at Wesbrook Village has been recognized on multiple occasions for its commitment to wellness and active aging. Tapestry earned the ICAA NuStep Beacon Award in 2019 and 2020 for embracing wellness and ensuring that all programming is aligned to the 7 Dimensions of Wellness.

A healthy breakfast is the foundation for a great day. Residents stop by the smoothie bar to enjoy their daily smoothie!
Fuelled up and ready to go, residents embrace new heights as they enjoy Greenheart TreeWalk through the UBC Botanical Gardens. Featuring a 310-meter-long walkway through a sea of firs and cedars, residents agree the bird’s eye view of 20 metres above ground is one of the best ways to take in nature!
Every afternoon of Active Aging Week kicks- off with our “one-song dance party”. There is always an enthusiastic group of residents and employees that joins in, whether it’s bopping along to an old Motown classic or grooving to a new top-40 song, everyone always brings their best moves.
After dancing up a storm it is time to stretch and relax. Tapestry kinesiologist Jenn guides residents through a 10-minute chair stretch. When living an active lifestyle it’s important to slow down and care for the muscles that make it all possible.
Eager to embrace environmental wellness, residents and employees help to clean-up one of their favourite areas. Not only is it a great way to get out for a purposeful walk, but it also allows us to care for our environment and the community.
