Pacific Carlton retirement community in White Rock, BC, is a place that fosters connection and friendships. With ample common areas, including an atrium, garden courtyard, games and activity rooms, and a cozy library. Our staff collaborates with residents to co-plan a social and recreational calendar that has something for everyone. Pacific Carlton is proud to host an abundance of social, cultural, and recreational activities. Here are some of the fabulous events individuals living in our VRS retirement home get to enjoy.

Exercise, Fitness, and Wellness Programs

Pacific Carlton retirement living, part of VRS senior communities, offers an exercise, fitness, or wellness class every day for residents to participate in. Staying active is essential to maintaining strength and mobility. By offering a variety of fun activities that suit a range of capabilities, every resident at Pacific Carlton is able to enjoy being active in their retirement home. Activities include carpet bowling, a putting green, Tai Chi, yoga, fitness classes (a favourite is “Having a Ball Fitness”), events with pharmacists for educational opportunities, and wellness workshops, including our current series, “Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain.”

Daily Social or Recreational Activities

This senior’s home is never short of things to do! Each day there are social or recreational activities for residents to get involved in. From movie nights to crafters club and painting, there is something for everyone. Residents tend to love gathering around bingo, bridge, and cards, forming a tight community that has a lot of fun together!

Special Events

At Pacific Carlton, we believe our residents should feel special and celebrated! We love planning intentional events that are filled with fun. In July, we had a wonderful Luau with a live band – our senior residents love to dance! We also hosted a butterfly release memorial service in the Garden to remember those who have passed. Our in-house, award-winning chef is from South Africa, so in honour of Nelson Mandela Day, our residents have gotten to enjoy authentic South African food. We also make it a priority every month to celebrate residents’ birthdays. 

Happy Hours

Who doesn’t love a good happy hour? At Pacific Carlton senior living in White Rock, BC, we believe in making happy hours a little extra happy with fabulous themes, activities, and live music! In July, we had a South African happy hour, a Superheroes of Pacific Carlton happy hour with live music, and a Cheap Beers and Tattoos happy hour! These events are fabulous for seniors to socialize, relax, have fun, and make new friends!

Special Outings

While our community is stunning and has everything our senior residents could ever need, we love to go on special bus outings. In July, residents at Pacific Carlton retirement home did a bus outing to Granville Island, went and watched the Canda Cup Softball Championship, and enjoyed a picnic at Derby Reach!

Pacific Carlton’s carefully curated calendar, created in collaboration between residents and staff, is designed to enrich our residents’ lives. By creating fun ways to stay active, social, and creative, our residents feel fulfilled and happy living at Pacific Carlton for their retirement.
