Wilma Wahl
I was born and raised in the Fraser Valley. Chilliwack has been my home for the past 25 years. I love the mountains, the farm lands and the rivers that run through our community.
I have been working with seniors for the past 18 years. The first few years I enjoyed cooking and serving the residents. It gave me such joy to work with the seniors and to provide for them on a daily basis that I wanted to do more for them.
Over time I grew into the position of managing the facility and over see both properties in Chilliwack. I enjoy all aspects of the job, from helping families find the right home for their loved one to helping them get settled into their new home and making them feel safe and know that our staff have their best interest at heart. I strive to find staff that will go the extra mile for our seniors and that we can all feel good at the end of each day to make our residents know and feel that this is home!
I do what I do because it’s the small things we do that make all the difference for our Seniors. To see the love and share with them the joy that we give to each other really makes me feel like a job well done! This is what family is all about and we want to welcome our Seniors home.

Why choose Independent Living

Norman Manor is designed for self-sufficient, well, active and autonomous seniors who want to live in a great community but need just little extra care.  At Norman Manor, independent living means all the freedom and flexibility of living on your own with no day-to-day responsibilities, like grocery shopping, cooking, housecleaning, so you can keep up an active social life with family and friends, pursue your hobbies, explore new interests and friendships, and engage in a wide range of activities if you wish to. How you spend your time is completely up to you!
