Meet Angie – A Tapestry Resident

Angie Chan was one of the first people to move in.

In early 2021, when the seniors’ community Tapestry at Victoria Harbour first opened its doors, Angie Chan was one of the first people to move in – and she’s never looked back.

But Angie’s journey to find a new home in Victoria wasn’t easy. She remained skeptical after visiting many other seniors’ communities and even had to contemplate a cross-country move from her longtime home of Toronto. Finding the Ontario winters too harsh for both her and her dog Charlie, Angie dreamed of the idyllic Victoria climate. Her search was over when a good friend told her about Tapestry’s unique approach. And as it turns out, Angie found her match, an active and engaged community where she could remain independent.

“I attended Tapestry’s seminars on downsizing, and they answered my questions and helped me through the process. It was all worth the effort,” said Angie. Once settled in, she found a community of like-minded, fun people where she could be choose to partake in many activities. Angie has since created a close-knit group of friends and enjoys playing euchre and having dinner parties, where they each take turns hosting.

Angie also loves the many activities Tapestry offers including yoga, dance and exercise classes. A daily schedule of events and programming keeps her and fellow residents engaged and socially connected while enjoying beautiful amenity spaces such as a fireside lounge and the rooftop terrace that overlooks the Inner Harbour. Tapestry also offers a full in-house restaurant. “The daily specials are excellent, or I can order whatever I like. And the chef always explains how the food is made,” said Angie. At Tapestry, every aspect of the community is designed with the residents’ health and wellness in mind.

“I’ve picked up a lot of advice from people around me. Just do what you want to do. Don’t let anything hold you back. Think outside of the box – and then move outside of that box. I’ve never been happier.”
