Concert’s Tapestry brand of retirement communities are known for doing some things differently, and in the process, for redefining notions of what retirement can be. Recently, the Tapestry at Wesbrook Village community has been exploring connections with the academic world through the establishment of a Master Class Lecture Series which features graduate students and established researchers presenting their work. These events are particularly fitting given the community’s location on the campus of the University of British Columbia. The first session in the series was a tremendous success having filled the room to the point of there only being standing room available.
The next lecture in the series will be on Monday, August 10 at 2:30pm where Dr. Matthew Farrer will be presenting his research on Parkinson’s. Building on his PhD in human genetics from Imperial College London, Dr. Farrer has become a world-renowned academic researcher who focuses on Parkinson’s disease. Specifically, he has made several influential discoveries in neurogenetics, and is critically acclaimed for his work on the genetics of Parkinson’s. He has spoken all over the world about his research, and his next stop will be Tapestry! This lecture is open to the public, but those interested are asked to please RSVP to 604.225.5000.
In Concert’s Tapestry model for seniors living, the goal is to enhance residents’ lifestyle by offering choice, top-notch service and most importantly, fun. Seniors live as independently as they choose in their own fully-equipped apartment home with an exhaustive list of amenities as well as a community of people right outside their door.
