The Centre opened in January 2003 with the mission to provide quality day health services to seniors through integrated programs and services. It is situated on the main level of the north end of the facility complex. It contains a lounge, an activity area, a kitchen, a dining room, a meeting room and a quiet room.
Funded by Vancouver Coastal Health, the Centre operates Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The program offers lunch, recreational activities, health monitoring and health education for seniors. Additional services such as podiatry, hairdressing, etc. are available for a fee.
The Centre also provides respite care for medically frail seniors or those with dementia and chronic disease management who are being cared for at home by family members. For some clients, the program helps them maintain their functional abilities.
To determine eligibility for admission to the program, please contact the community health area in your neigbourhood.
