Van Mall Makes Aging Fun!

Since 1989, Van Mall Senior Living has built an excellent reputation as a provider of quality retirement living in the Vancouver area.

You can feel the energy and hear the laughter when you walk through the front door. All around are the sights and sounds of excitement and joy as residents are genuinely thriving. As a Leisure Care community, Van Mall has cornered the local market on active retirement, which they refer to as “Five-Star Fun.”

“We work hard to make sure Leisure Care retirement communities break the conventional stereotype of senior living,” says Manager Bill Hess. “We’re not running a hospital or skilled nursing facility. Age isn’t a disease. Our employees don’t wear scrubs and speak in hushed tones. Instead, we’re excited, passionate, playful, and engaging.”

Van Mall operates with the philosophy that to truly enjoy life residents must engage in a lifestyle of wellness. In other settings, wellness may mean a clinical approach of diagnosis and treatment. At Van Mall, they approach wellness as a collection of opportunities for residents to live a healthier, happier life through the choices they make – whether it’s a bucket list request such as a Blazer’s game, whitewater rafting or indoor skydiving, to requesting help with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).

Van Mall offers a range of senior living services. They are unique in their ability to assist residents when they need it. If an independent resident needs assistance with ADLs, the resident does not need to move to an assisted wing. The Van Mall caregivers will come to them, helping them where they are.

Another important factor that has helped build their solid reputation for the past 29 years is the quality and longevity of Van Mall employees. Not only are they knowledgeable and fun, Van Mall employees stick around. In fact, 13 of Van Mall’s employees total 157 years of customer service in senior living.

“Here at Van Mall we want our employees to laugh, have fun, and truly enjoy their work,” said Hess. We believe that a respectful, enjoyable environment attracts and retains the best kind of employees. Though the member s of our staff specialize in different areas, we are unified by a deep-seated desire to make our community the best it can be.”
