Family Values At The Root Of Royal Crescent Gardens!

Covid19- March 29th, update

Optima Living continues to be vigilant about protecting the wellness and health of our residents and care partners.  We are adhering to all protocols established by the Provincial health officers in Alberta and B.C.

The team at Optima Living is grateful for the support and leadership of our site leaders and care partners who are tirelessly working every day to take care of the residents.  We continue to take an abundance of infection control measures at all sites to stop the spread of Covid19.

Thank you to the families of our residents who have shown an outpouring of support.  Be encouraged by this short video developed by some of our families in honor of the team that is taking care of their loved one at our independent living community at Chilliwack Lifestyles in BC.

Optima Living is  offering physical distancing socialization opportunities to continue to connect with others while isolating.

Why choose Royal Crescent Gardens Assisted Living

Though the city of Maple Ridge has grown over the years, match­ing the pace of devel­opment in all of Greater Vancouver, in many ways it still retains the quaint, small-town at­mosphere that many of the residents who make their home at Royal Crescent Gardens recall from decades ago.

As a small, assisted living home, Royal Crescent Gardens itself mirrors that atmosphere and the 46 residents and the team members supporting them have become so much more than occupants of a retirement setting
