Settle into Fall


Autumn is the perfect time for change. With the leaves falling and the first chill in the air, fall is a season that brings new beginnings to mind. It is a great time to start new adventures and make positive changes in our lives. It’s time to leave those lazy days of summer behind us and get back into the swing of things.

This Fall, things are swinging at Magnolia Gardens. Our Friday Afternoon Concert Series features live entertainment by The Acchords, best known for their outstanding performances at Accordionfest in Chemainus on Vancouver Island… and accordion music isn’t just oom-pa-pa anymore… it’s very lively with lots of variation. We have a wonderful variety of entertainers who come to our building for our residents and their friends and families to enjoy.

Making the move to a seniors’ residence can be a difficult decision. Change can be scary at any age, but this is a positive change. This is a move ‘to live again’. A lot of our residents had been socially isolated, lonely and not eating properly. The move to Magnolia Gardens has taken care of those concerns.

“I had been living in a mobile home on my daughter’s property. I didn’t want to be alone so much, so I made the move to Magnolia Gardens when it opened in September, 2001,” says Margaret. “I have been very happy with the decision to make the move — I wouldn’t think of living anywhere else!”

“I was tired of my own company. Sure, I had friends and family who I still saw, but everyone has such busy lives,” says Marcia. “I decided to take my life into my own hands; I visited Magnolia Gardens, checked everything out, met some of the residents and felt quite at home. I’ve lived here since 2006 and I must say, I think it was one of my better decisions. I look forward to every day.”

You’ll like living here! Magnolia Gardens is a community for seniors who want to stay active, live independently, and have fun with their friends and families every day.

Remember Duke Ellington’s advice: “It Don’t Mean A Thing (If It Ain’t Got That Swing)”. If you want to get some swing back in your life at a Bria community, ‘Schedule a Tour’ with Jane Bryce, Area Marketing Manager for Langley and see what you’ve been missing out on.
