The Glenshiel, operated by a non-profit society, is a convenient residence for independent seniors 55+. The Glenshiel takes the safety, health and well-being of all our residents, volunteers and staff very seriously, especially during this time of the COVID 19 Pandemic. We are vigilantly monitoring the ongoing situation and listening closely to the provincial and local health officials and the BC Centre for Disease Control. Currently our facility is restrcted to essential staff and services only. You can follow us on Facebook for updates, and get more information about our COVID 19 safety plan here.
We acknowledge with respect the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on whose traditional territory The Glenshiel Housing Society stands, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day.
Our central location makes it easy to get where you are going. There is a bus stop across the road and it's an easy walk to neighbourhood stores, churches, community centres and local parks.
The Glenshiel offers a full package of services and amenities. Three home cooked meals with a choice of entrees are served daily, as are early morning, afternoon and evening tea and coffee. Tray service is available during times of short-term illness. We provide daily housekeeping service. Laundry facilities, local telephone and cablevision are included in one very affordable monthly fee. Parking is available at a reasonable monthly rate.
We offer a varied and interesting activity program for residents. Options include card games, movies, painting classes, exercise programs and entertainment. Excursions are available for those who like to range farther afield, and local seniors centres are within walking distance.
