Lake Country’s The Lakes Chiropractic clinic expands – Think Local

Sponsored Content – | Story: 364499

When it comes to her chiropractic clinic in Lake Country, Dr. Rae Grant wants it to be a health hub in the community.

And now that The Lakes Chiropractic Clinic has expanded to a larger space, it can offer even more health services.

“We’re very community centred,” says Grant, who opened her clinic in the Lakes neighbourhood of Lake Country in 2020 after moving to the Okanagan from Alberta. The new location is in the same commercial complex as the old clinic.

“I think health care should be managed naturally whenever possible and we strive to be a resource for optimizing the health of our patients and their families,” says Grant.

The new, larger clinic — located at 106C-2611 Stillwater Way in Lake Country—not only has three treatment rooms but also a large group room where health-related programs and counselling can be offered.

In addition to the move, Grant has brought a counsellor on staff and is hoping to attract other healthcare practitioners in the future.

“My biggest goal is to encourage our awesome community to actively reach whatever their health goals are,” says Grant. “I often see patients after they have been to other, traditional medical doctors and have been told there is nothing wrong, but they still don’t feel well. We are able to help them get to the root of their health concerns by using natural interventions.”

She says while chiropractic helps with the physical component of many issues, counselling helps with the mental and emotional component and her clinic works with other health practitioners in the community to offer whatever tools are needed to help her clients.

While the clinic offers a full range of chiropractic services, Grant, a former competitive soccer player, specializes in sports medicine. She also has a special focus on the needs of pregnant women and children, both of whom, she says, have specific chiropractic needs.

“It is a totally different focus,” she says.

Grant estimates between 30% and 40% of her clients now are children and the larger space at the new clinic has enabled her to have a dedicated pediatric treatment room.

“Since starting my practice, I have seen the impacts that care can have on the paediatric population, so I have developed a passion for treating families.”

The clinic also offers free healthy lifestyle tips through its Instagram account.

“People don’t have to live with pain, dysfunction or poor health,” says Grant, who advises the public to talk with a health care professional if they feel something is wrong.

“You don’t have to live with pain, there are ways to improve your health.”

The new Lakes Chiropractic Clinic is now open and ready to provide that help.

If you live in or near Penticton, you already know what you are going to have for breakfast on Saturday morning.

And why not an afternoon snack while you’re at it?

Not only will you fill your tummy with delicious hot cross buns from COBS Bread Riverside Village, but you will also help rescue animals find new homes.

That’s because $2 from every six-pack of hot cross buns sold on Saturday will go towards Critteraid Animal Sanctuary in Summerland as part of the second annual Doughnation Day.

The goal of Doughnation Day is to raise $5,000 for Critteraid, which is run by volunteers and donations. It started out 30 years ago as a cat rescue and has been providing shelter, medical care, healing and love to thousands of cats and various farm animals. Critteraid also bills itself as an educational facility that invites people to learn about animals in a way that will change their perspective about themselves and the world around them.

COBS Bread Riverside Village has been accepting donations in the store since March 3, and donations can be made online here if you can’t make it to Penticton on Saturday.

For those who can get there, Critteraid volunteers will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to answer questions about what they do and why it’s important. There will also be an information tent and games for everyone who attends.

Most importantly, there are four flavours of hot cross buns that will be sold on Saturday to raise funds for everyone’s furry friends:

• traditional, which contains raisins and currents

• orange cranberry

• apple cinnamon

• the new triple chocolate, which includes dark, milk and white chocolate.

COBS Bread Riverside Village plans to sell every hot cross bun it makes on Saturday, but even if it doesn’t it will make sure that its food does not go to waste.

“We bake fresh every day, and when we close our doors at the end of the day we donate any remaining baked goods to local charities, schools and community groups,” COBS Bread Riverside Village owner Jasel Peters says.

It took 52 days to sell all 52 homes at the first Glenpark Row development.

It would not be surprising if the 77 homes in Glenpark Row II, which are about to go on sale, move just as quickly

When you have townhomes that include three bedrooms, a den, and two and a half bathrooms, parking for two vehicles, are located in the highly desirable Glenmore neighbourhood of Kelowna and can be had for a price in the high $600,000s, there is little chance they will be around for long.

Most of the homes at Glenpark Row II will be between 1,450 and 1,575 square feet, and approximately half will feature double side-by-side garages. The single garages, meanwhile, will have long enough driveways to park a second vehicle.

The den is located on the garage level, and the living space—a kitchen, living room and half bath—is on the second floor. The third floor features three bedrooms and a pair of bathrooms, including the en suite with large walk-in shower.

“The den could be used as a TV room or an office,” Fortune Marketing’s Don Warkentin says. “You could even use it as a bedroom if you wanted to. If you are a family of four, each of the kids has their own room, you can have a home office and an extra room for guests.”

Quartz countertops, a walk-in closet and dual sinks in the en suite will elevate the level of living even more at Glenpark Row II.

The inside of the contemporary townhomes are enough to make them remarkably attractive, but the area surrounding the development is just as sublime. It is across the street from a city-owned sports field and off-leash dog park, Watson Road and North Glenmore elementary schools are within walking distance, and Dr. Knox Middle School is even closer.

The homes will have pet-friendly gated yards and decks off the main living area with natural gas for barbecuing. The garages will also feature the infrastructure required for electric vehicle charging.

In North Glenmore, every amenity you could hope for is at your fingertips. Only two minutes by car or 10 minutes on foot you will find Glenpark Village and Brandt’s Creek Crossing shopping with a Save-on-Foods, IGA, Shoppers Drug Mart, various restaurants, cafes, doctor and dentist offices, a veterinary clinic and more. All are easily accessible to you within this self-sufficient community.

“You’re within a ten-minute drive to everything else, ten minutes to UBCO and Kelowna International Airport via John Hindle drive, ten minutes to downtown Kelowna and ten minutes to Costco, Orchard Park mall and other big box stores,” Warkentin says.

Glenpark Row II’s presentation centre is scheduled to be up and running at the end of April, and sales will begin in early May. Construction will begin shortly thereafter.

A downpayment of only 10% is required, giving anyone the opportunity to enter the tight Kelowna market at a relatively affordable price.
