New name. New ownership. Newly renovated.

Formerly Fernbrae Manor, Orchard Gardens Seniors Community offers quality services, active living and a variety of amenities for Kelowna’s seniors. Now owned and operated by VRS Communities, we’re doing things a little differently, and we’re keeping you safe. Supporting our residents through the pandemic has been our priority and focus - with everything you need to both live comfortably and safe under one roof. Choose from a studio or one-bedroom suite with independent living monthly packages.

Rest assured, our staff have been trained with the highest standard of Covid-19 protocols and prioritize the safety and health of residents above all else.

“I have lived at Fernbrae Manor for 2.5 years. I love my suite; it is comfortable, quiet and secure. I also enjoy the large library and Beauty Salon. The management and staff are of a top caliber and put their hearts into their work.”

“I came to Canada as a “War Bride” just before the end of WW II. Orchard Gardens is a very special place to reside. Our meals are lovely and are served in an elegant dining room. Orchard has so many choices for entertainment that I never tire for things to do. I love the beautiful grounds full of different variety of colorful flowers. There is fun to be had at Orchard Gardens and above all kindness and understanding for those that live in our community.”
