Silver Kettle Village, Grand Fork’s newest retirement community, has welcomed its first residents this month.
The village provides independent and assisted living housing, hospitality, personal support services, and is designed for seniors who want a safe, rewarding and independent lifestyle without the responsibilities of home maintenance.
“From the village, it’s a short stroll to the local supermarket and a quick drive to the Boundary Hospital,” said Landon Elliott, marketing director for Golden Life Management. “Grand Forks offers something for everyone: enjoy quiet walks down the beautiful tree-lined streets, browse through the local art galleries, view historic heritage homes, or take a day to sunbathe at one of the many parks along the river.”
The independent living suites consist of studio one- and two-bedroom suites and have bright spacious kitchens, full bathrooms, and plenty of walk-in storage.
Elliot noted there is a monthly activity calendar that will be available to residents, featuring activities occurring at the village, birthday and anniversary celebrations, events, and various recreational opportunities, such as live music, movie nights, and morning exercises.
There are also public events such as the recent Veteran’s Celebration Luncheon, where over 100 residents participated in live music and food, as well as regular bus outings to neighbouring communities for day trips.
“When you get right down to it, life is about you – not your house, or the housekeeping, or the errands,” said Elliot. “You have other things you’d rather do, so leave the details to us. It’s that easy. We’ll make your life as carefree as it can be.”
Elliot pointed out dinner is included in rent and the village dining rooms are filled with friendly faces, warm conversation, sounds of laughter, and fantastic food.
“There are delicious, fresh, and healthy foods, friendly wait staff, and enjoyable company every night,” he said. “As an added bonus, residents don’t have to do the dishes afterwards.”
There are only limited suites left and they are going quickly. For more information, contact the village at 250-489-0667.
