Oasis Village Grand Opening took place June 17 and Chilliwack saw some pretty big stars hit town for it. The Village consists of two unique programs that merge sustainable and automated home design within a unique lifestyle community living option for seniors in a sustainable agricultural setting and is a brand new concept for Chilliwack.


Debbie Walker, President of Translucent Publicity and The Oasis, said special guests in the film and television industry were at the invitation only Launch Party held in Chilliwack Thursday June 17, 2010.


Dell is an all-round entertainer who recently underwent a liver transplant last November. He will be competing in the upcoming Canadian Transplant Games in Quebec at the end of July as well as in the NKF US Transplant Games at the end of July to early August.


Dell will be sharing the spotlight, with actor Frank Cassini, whose CTV/CBS hit series, "The Bridge", has just announced it's second season. In addition the original first season has just been installed for a second airing on CTV simultaneously with CBS premieres starting July 10th. Check your local listings for further details.


Debbie Walker has created a vision for an alternative lifestyle for active seniors. Her vision incorporates the needs and wants for an improved quality of life for 55+ by developing an "active living" environment, while standard community models simply promote "assisted living".

In developing a good working understanding of the housing options for seniors, Ms. Walker identified that active living and a supportive environment provide for an improved attitude and happiness for the aging individual.

The result is a Pilot Project called "The OASIS Village", which will be built by Debbie Walker and meets these quality of life issues while delivering sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions. The OASIS Village helps launch two unique programs that merge sustainable and automated home design within a unique lifestyle community living option for seniors in a sustainable agricultural setting.

The OASIS Village is an opportunity to showcase seniors and families involved in a sustainable and nurturing environment constructed to SAFERhome Standards Society requirements. This project will be a home for seniors who wish to live a healthier and more productive, independent lifestyle. This "housing model" will adapt to any changes required to address their own personal needs. As such, this program creates an alternative to the warehousing of seniors in an urban setting where their lifestyle and dignity as producing members of society are compromised.

This project can become a wonderful accessible and universal platform for the community to interact directly with government and other institutes. We will be able to deliver real and tangible solutions that the social and market housing bodies can adopt and easily implement into the ongoing development of our future communities.

It takes a village to raise a community.

The Oasis Village is the answer that can accomplish just that by addressing the needs of the individual in an aging population and communities-at-large.
