Royal Crescent Gardens Assisted Living

Family Values At The Root Of Royal Crescent Gardens!

Though the city of Maple Ridge has grown over the years, match­ing the pace of devel­opment in all of Greater Vancouver, in many ways it still retains the quaint, small town at­mosphere that many of the residents who make their home at Royal Crescent Gardens recall from decades ago.

As a small, assisted living home, Royal Crescent Gardens itself mirrors that atmosphere and the 46 residents and the team members supporting them have become so much more than occupants of a retirement setting.  Read More

 

We focus on providing comprehensive provision of care which contributes to the quality of life of our residents.
