Good News: Hallmark Acquired By Baptist Housing

We are pleased to announce that Baptist Housing has entered an agreement with Hallmark Retirement Communities to acquire its two retirement residences located in Abbotsford, effective July 31, 2017. 


Hallmark on the Park and Hallmark on the Lake are family-owned and operated Independent and Assisted Living residences.  Hallmark, like Baptist Housing, has an amazing team with whom we share similar values.  We are committed to a smooth transition so as to continue the legacy Stan and Grace Hindmarsh and their family began 18 years ago when they opened the first Hallmark retirement community. 


We are thankful for the great team at Hallmark which will continue to serve Residents with excellence.  We look forward to welcoming the two Hallmark communities into the Baptist Housing family.

Happy 100th!

Sue was pretty proud to turn 100, but asked us to only invite a hundred of her closest friends.  




Great day for a walk in our backyard, the award-winning Fishtrap Creek Park. 


Whose Bike Is That?

We've ordered two of these game-changing bikes, which could be a walker/scooter replacement for many folks.  It'll be an interesting experiment, as it appears to be a healthier option: you're using your legs, and sitting up straight.  You're also at everyone else's eye level, so you're involved in the conversation.  Sounds intriguing?

Knit Together: Hallmark Seniors and Guatemala

Our knitting club produces more blankets than you'd believe, and we deliver them to folks in Guatemala.  This time, our video followed a blanket from the hands of the knitting club, down to Guatemala, into the hands of Lorenza. Come see!


Childhood and Nature

What did you like to do for fun?

Our relationship with nature is disappearing. That is what we found out when we talked to 3 generations and asked them one simple question: What did you like to do for fun as a kid?

Hello Spring!

We love it when a warm March gives us a head start on tulips in our flower beds. Hello spring!
