The Orchard is a seniors’ residential facility (65+) in Cadboro Bay, BC intended for people capable of living active, independent lives. No meals, housekeeping or services are provided. Living in the Orchard is similar to living in a condominium, except that the suite is leased by St. George's Housing Society (SGHS) to the Resident.
The Orchard, built in 1993, has 20 suites that are occupied on the basis of a life-lease Occupancy Agreement with SGHS. All suites are one bedroom plus a den. There are two floor plans. 18 suites are 833 square feet and the remaining 2 suites are 911 square feet.
There is an abundance of common space in The Orchard. This includes two large lounges, a full kitchen and dining area (which Residents may use to entertain family or friends when numbers are too large to fit into the suite), a small guest bedroom, a workshop/hobby area, and landscaped grounds. Garden plots are available for Resident use.
