Independent Living - Rose Bank Gardens

Description: Strata VIS 4078 - Rose Bank Gardens - 1485 Garnet Road, Victoria BC V8P 5T5 | 250-472-0677

Rosebank Gardens is a 55+ condominium in the McKenzie-Shelbourne area. The complex has 41 apartments on three floors containing a roughly equal mix of one and two bedrooms units. Rosebank owners purchase, along with their individual unit, a share of the building and facilities. Note that as a Rosebank Gardens property owner one continues to possess equity. Because Rosebank Gardens is a condominium its resident/owners make decisions about services provided, costs, and management. Contrast this to many seniors housing facilities in Victoria where residents pay a high monthly rent, have no equity, and are obliged to accept whatever quality and range of services are on offer.

The key services that Rosebank Gardens’ residents provide themselves, through their strata and service fees, include:

A delicious chef cooked supper prepared on-site from scratch in Rosebank Gardens’ kitchen, served to your table in the beautiful dining/activity lounge
24 hour security and concierge
Weekly suite cleaning
Weekly bed linen laundering with as-needed bed changing/making
Generous common areas include the comfortable and spacious dining/activity lounge, library, and lobby
Available guest suite
A coin-free laundry room on each of the three floors
Price’s Medical Alert system in every suite

Additional Information: Rosebank Gardens is NOT a ‘retirement home’. Rosebank Gardens is owned and operated by its residents through a not-for-profit corporation. Rosebank Gardens’ residents did not move here because they need ‘care’ and supervision. Rather, they have chosen Rosebank Gardens because it supports their independent lifestyle.
