Turning Passion into Contribution
at Optima Living

Welcome to the first of our new Team Member Spotlight series!

This month, we focus on David Burns of The Hamlets at Penticton.

David works in maintenance, but he’s an artist at heart. His hidden talents were discovered when he was asked to paint the walls of The Hamlets in the summer of 2019.

He was initially asked to paint the walls a light blue to look like the sky, while the Director of Care would look for local artists to volunteer to do the murals. When they didn’t find anyone, David volunteered.

Remembrance Day

Optima Living honoured Remembrance Day with a presentation and speeches from residents sharing their memories and personal experiences.

Lest we forget.


We celebrated Diwali at Wisteria Place with a Happy Hour, great food, and traditional Indian clothing!

What's happening at Optima Living

Wisteria Place is constantly working on learning new skills, including creating new types of art! Recently they made dream catchers, rain makers, and created new paintings.
The Hamlets at Penticton received special permission to visit Alice the Dinosaur who stands at 22 feet high and 50 feet long, and weighs 12,000 pounds! One of their care team also dressed up as a dinosaur to help load the bus. It was a very fun day!
