Vernon Restholm Association was incorporated as a Non-Profit Society in August of 1961. In April 1964, it opened in Vernon, BC as a “retirement home for senior living” in Vernon, BC.
Through the foresight and determination of its President, Mr. Guy Bagnall and six prominent citizens with a strong interest in community affairs.
“Restholm” was built to provide housing for low-income seniors who had lost spouses or one of the spouses was too ill to look after the other.
Our senior living home allows for companionship, common sharing of interests and provisions of everyday living needs without worry and regardless of income.
What is Independent Supportive Senior Housing?
We are proud of the fact that Vernon Restholm was the first senior “independent supportive living” residence in Vernon.
We have offered affordable senior retirement housing and a caring environment for literally thousands of elderly people and they have shared laughter, meals, stories, a sense of comradeship and a feeling that this truly is their home.
Although there are many senior housing residences being built of late, very few are affordable for the average income senior citizen.
Financially, we are not privately owned and not government subsidized. Our revenue is obtained solely through room rental, community fundraising and service club donations.
To ensure there will always be accommodations for seniors, regardless of income, the Board of Directors and Management continue to maintain and upgrade our senior housing residence.
