Description

Pender Harbour Seniors Housing Society will be building LILY LAKE PLACE on their site at Lily Lake Village. Lily Lake Place will have a total of ten (10) appropriately-designed senior-sized apartments. The upper floor will consist of common-use areas, an all-weather patio, and garden space. Preliminary floor plans have been drawn and cost estimates are now being prepared after which individual unit prices will be determined on a non-profit model.
All apartments will be sold on a “Life Lease” 'first come, first served' basis. We propose to copy the successful system used by the Maple Ridge Legion. Each occupant “buys” the right to use the unit as long as they wish.
When they no longer can or wish to stay, the society will buy back the lease for the price originally paid for it – and will re-sell the use of the unit to a waiting applicant. At any time, with 90 days notice, for any reason, the purchaser may apply for a full refund.


Company description
Lily Lake Place will be the finest affordable seniors housing available on the coast with first-class amenities and materials used throughout. All exterior walls and party walls will be constructed with Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF), which makes a concrete building that is fireproof, soundproof, and extremely well-insulated, resulting in very low heating costs. For over 25 years there has been much concern and discussion about the the lack of Seniors Housing in Pender Harbour. In an effort to address and resolve this situation the Area A Seniors Housing Project was formed in 1990 as a registered non-profit society. Serviced land was donated by Ryan Campbell in his Lily Lake subdivision and the society decided to proceed with the Abbeyfield concept of senior's housing.
Abbeyfield consists of rented bachelor suites clustered around a central kitchen with a live-in attendant. Much effort and fundraising was put into having such a project established but it was not successful in attracting enough clients. This was due mainly to the fact that most seniors want at least one separate bedroom in their final home. The name of our society was officially changed to Pender Harbour Seniors Housing Society as a result the 2012 AGM and since then the Board has been in conversation with the Pender Harbour Legion about the possibility of building condominiums for seniors on Legion property.
With that in mind a professional Needs Assessment has been completed that indicates we should build 30 condominiums for seniors in Pender! That is now being followed up with a survey of seniors asking specific details about what they would desire in their condominium home. While in a state of change, please be assured that all funds that have been accumulated through the many Community dances, bake sales and donations remain secure.
