About Lilac Terrace
Seniors Supportive Housing has become very popular in small towns across British Columbia. The truth is that seniors are healthier and happier when they maintain their independence. For many, staying in the family home may no longer be safe or manageable. That is when a complex such as Lilac Terrace can provide the extra support seniors may need.
At Lilac Terrace there are 42 apartments, and just like any other apartment building residents are free to come and go as they please. It's independent living.
The 3-storey building is equipped with two elevators and was upgraded with a sprinkler system in 2009. The building was expanded in 2015 to include more apartments and two community rooms, a new resident lounge and an expansion to the commercial kitchen.
Residents have access to many support programs and services should they need them. Residents may be as involved as they wish. While we encourage everyone to take advantage of the programs and activities offered, we respect each person's individuality. The ammenity room is where the seniors gather to have morning coffee or a game of cards in the afternoon. There is a pool table, treadmill and shuffleboard table for their use.
Lilac Terrace is located 3 blocks from post office, shopping and pharmacy; 1 block from the library. The Sparwood community bus stops right outside our door.
Rental rates are based on monthly income. BC Housing provides subsidy for low and moderate income seniors. The Seniors Supportive Housing Program includes meals, housekeeping and linen service as well as the emergency response call button. Rates are 50% of monthly income.
