Welcome home: Elim Village’s Garrison Crossing offers a unique approach to retirement living

If you are seeking to downsize, or just want to enjoy life to its fullest potential, Elim Village’s Garrison Crossing community combines the best of Independent Living with the comfort and security of a warm, caring place to call home.

One of a kind: The Hawthorn at Elim Village Garrison Crossing

Available for occupancy in January 2022, this new seven-storey, 93-unit building, “The Hawthorn,” is waiting to welcome you. This is unique for Chilliwack, an “Independent Plus” building that offers amenities such as various dining options, spa services and activity spaces where residents can gather together. Light housekeeping and a choice of chef-prepared meals means you have more free time for what really matters in life — your wellbeing, family and friends.

Time for what matters

Here, you can truly retire while the caring, warm and friendly staff look after the daily chores, allowing you to focus on long-forgotten hobbies or try new ones. Elim Village Garrison Crossing is how retirement living should be! Enjoy a game of horseshoes, stroll the grounds, or get out and about to nearby Garrison Village.

From this beautifully-manicured, park-like campus, Garrison Village and its many shops and services are just a short stroll away. The nearby Cheam Leisure Centre offers a wide variety of programs and activities including a swimming pool with a hot tub, sauna and lazy river, as well as a weight room and squash courts.

Also a short distance from your new home, the Chilliwack Rotary Trail winds its way along the mountain-fed Vedder River, offering stunning seasonal scenery easily enjoyed from the beautifully maintained and level pathway. Ducks, geese, eagles and herons often show themselves along with a variety of flora. Plentiful benches along your stroll provide a place to rest or to simply soak in the sun.

Spirit of community

While it’s important to stay active physically, it’s equally important to nurture the mind. Enjoy the spirit of community with like-minded neighbours in a faith-based atmosphere. Elegantly appointed common areas encourage conversation and the reading lounge provides a quiet place to comfortably relax and enjoy a good book. Chat with family and old friends and make new ones.

Floor plans include one- and two-bedroom units, and each suite has its own balcony to with many offering stunning unobstructed alpine views to take in the refreshing mountain air.
