Senior Retirement Housing in Vernon BC

senior retirement home

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.

Senior Living Amenities we Have to Offer

Our staff is dedicated to providing a supportive and caring environment where friendships both old and new can thrive and grow.

The air conditioned, unfurnished studio suites and one-bedroom couple suites come with a smoke detector, fire suppression system, 24 hour emergency call system, cable vision, and a two piece bathroom.

    Hi Jerry,
    We are sorry but the Marksmen will not be able to sing for your Rotary group on Dec 19th.
    After discussing it at our practice yesterday, we tried to contact you but you were not at work then or today so I hope this email will get to you. It turns out that our group has too many commitments at this time of year.
    The group (Chilly Creek)that entertained in Restholm yesterday may be available and if they are would be a good choice for your luncheon.

  9. Hello,
    I am a LPN and looking to work with seniors. I am wondering if you have any positions available. I have also worked in a day program atmosphere as well. Thanks!

  10. Hello Brittney,

    As an independent supportive living residence we do not have nurses or care-aides on our staff. However, as a number of our residents do need some assistance, Interior Health provides us a full-time care-aide and nurses do check-in our residents when needed. I wish you all the best in your search.

  11. Hi Jerry,
    I was wondering if you currently have any job openings to which I could pass along a resume.

  12. Hi Julie,

    as I keep them on file.

    Best of luck with your search,

    Jerry Tellier

  13. I would like to apply for the cleaning position that you have currently advertised in the Morning Star. I have past experience in cleaning multi unit buildings and have also worked with seniors so I feel that I am a good fit. Is there a contact link where I can send you my resume or would you prefer that I drop it off?

  14. My wife and i are in our eighties and would like to try living in a retirement home for say two months to see if we would like it before selling our home and committing our selves permanently . Do you have a suite that can be rented out say for two months . It would be like a holiday for the two of us Thanks . ED Parent

  15. Hi Ed,
    Thank-you for contacting us through our website.

    I have told many people in your same situation, as I did my father a few years ago, don’t sell your house until after you’ve moved in and are convinced that you’ve made the right decision!
    I do recommend that you commit for 3 months, that way you are truly giving yourself a 2 month commitment and if you do decide to leave, you are giving us the proper one month notice.

    I’ve also sent you an email.


    Jerry Tellier

  16. Hi Joyce,
