A Mug Story

Sharon our Shannon Oaks Administrator in Vancouver, recently shared a story about her son-in-law Dean. He was on a job site as a welding inspector at a local oil refinery when he headed for coffee. He went to grab one of the many mugs and noticed the Shannon Oaks mug. Now that is the one that needed to be used!

He soon shared a photo with Sharon and made her smile. At Baptist Housing it's about having fun. We celebrate the small moments and we want to hear more. What's your mug story?

We also provide a special Vanity Fair interview of our very own Centenarians. They share heartfelt memories and good advice for the New Year. The impact of our Team and Residents is truly bringing smiles and joy to the community at large.

Centenarian Club

At Baptist Housing Centenarians hold a special place in our heart. They inspire us to value each other and treat every day as a gift. We had the opportunity to interview Centenarians across several Baptist Housing residences. Our in-house Celebrities have shared their heroes and childhood memories. They may also have given us clues to a long life... 

Meet some of the Centenarians we have had the pleasure of getting to know:
