July 28, 2010 – The only retirement home in British Columbia with its own private sandy beach on the shores of Kootenay Lake is opening August 1, 2010. Lakeshore Retirement Homes is a privately-owned seniors independent living facility located on more than two acres on Bealby Point Road just minutes from downtown Nelson.
The facility offers 11 private bedrooms, each with its own 3-piece bathroom, and two modern gathering rooms – a dining area with expansive views of the lake and an entertainment area featuring a billiards table, piano, television, fireplace and stereo. Outside, the property features mature trees, a quaint chapel, well-groomed lawns, benches, resident songbirds, a stream and an exquisite sandy beach.
Lakeshore’s owners and staff emphasize the area’s ideals of enjoying an active lifestyle in a safe, natural environment. They provide three healthy meals a day, cleaning and laundry services every week, as well as a selection of recreational pursuits. “Our Activities Coordinator will plan weekly events and activities according to the physical and social needs and requests of each of our residents,” says owner and manager Lisa Trainor. “Our beautiful grounds are a perfect environment to inspire healthy, active living.”
A few of the activities that will be offered at Lakeshore include scenic walks and hikes, swimming, horseshoes and bocce ball, card playing and tournaments, bingo, fitness and stretching programs, yoga, gardening and computer training.
“When my family and I made the decision to share our unique property on Kootenay Lake with seniors in the Nelson community, I immediately knew I wanted to provide a facility with a home-like atmosphere that inspires,” Lisa says. “Lakeside Retirement Homes is the type of place I want my own mother and father to live in – one I’d feel great about every time I visited them.”
The facility’s relatively small size allows Lisa and her staff to be more attentive to clients’ needs while ensuring they continue to enjoy their independence. “Our core values are wellness, respect and personal fulfillment,” she says. “We also place a high priority on security and have ensured the entire facility has an automatic fire protection sprinkler system as well as audible and visual alarms and emergency call systems in every room.”
