Location, inviting setting welcomes seniors home in North Delta

Columbus Lodge offers affordable, boutique-style seniors’ housing

In addition to a comfortable, well-appointed home, Columbus Lodge residents enjoy a premier location just a few minutes’ walk from the Kennedy Seniors Centre, shopping and other activities.

While it’s often said that location is everything in real estate, that’s even more true for seniors looking for the ideal residence where they can feel at home and with friends.

In North Delta, many find the perfect combination at Columbus Lodge.

“It’s really what I would call our flagship residence,” says Mike Garisto, with the Columbus Charities Association, which provides affordable seniors’ housing in four Lower Mainland residences.

Located next to Immaculate Conception Parish at 8850 118A St., Lodge residents also enjoy the benefits of a premier location just a few minutes’ walk from the Kennedy Seniors Centre, shopping and other activities, Garisto notes.

“We are a non-profit so our goal is to keep things as affordable as possible,” Garisto says, noting monthly rents, including three meals daily, begin at $1,590. “Our residents and their families appreciate the value they receive, and the friendly atmosphere.”

Here’s a look inside:

  • The residences – Designed as a comfortable, 31-unit boutique-style residence, Columbus Lodge boasts of seven one-bedroom suites and the rest spacious studios, each with a private bathroom and shower and wired for private telephone and cable hookup. Residents also enjoy the flexibility of a mini-fridge and microwave in their suites to enjoy coffee or snacks.

  • Welcoming community – Stepping inside, visitors immediately notice the welcoming setting, including a lounge with fireplace and piano, large multimedia room, dining room and day-long coffee and snacks service. On-site amenities include a hair-salon with service at cost, and free laundry facilities. Expecting guests? Overnight visitors are welcome with meals provided at a nominal cost!
  • Delicious, healthy food – With Chef John heading up the kitchen, Columbus Lodge residents enjoy exceptional food and dietitian-designed menus that can be customized for individual health needs. Even better, three meals a day are included, so no need to worry about additional costs!
  • Interesting activities and out-trips – Like to stay busy? Enjoy regular exercise and recreation programs organized by the activities coordinator. And while the Lodge’s location makes it easy for residents to take in the many activities at Kennedy Seniors’ Centre and other neighbourhood destinations, they can also enjoy regular bus trips to events and opportunities farther afield.
  • Safety and accessibility – Residents also enjoy the peace of mind and greater sense of personal security that comes with living as part of a community with a resident caretaker/manager on-site, Garisto notes. The residence is also wheelchair- and walker-accessible and includes an elevator.

Sponsored by the Knights of Columbus councils of Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, Columbus Charities Association provides affordable seniors’ housing. A registered charity, CCA aims to provide conveniently located, affordable, multi-cultural and home-like seniors’ housing, allowing all residents to live with respect and dignity in a supportive setting.
