Welcome to The German-Canadian Care Home
The German-Canadian Care Home is a 134-bed, publicly funded care home in South Vancouver. We care for seniors with complex physical and/or mental needs. Our care home includes Vancouver’s largest special care unit for residents with dementia.
Our Home has been providing compassionate care for over 40 years, and we have adopted the Eden Alternative approach. Residents are ethnically diverse, including approximately 30% of German descent.
Our strengths include long-term, experienced staff members, an in-house rehabilitation department, recreation and music therapy, as well as a number of other in-house services for the convenience of the residents. The Home has been accredited continuously since 1979.
The Home is supported by the German-Canadian Benevolent Society, which provides volunteers, activities and fundraising to enrich the lives of the residents and enhance the care home. The Society is currently fundraising towards a longer-term goal: the redevelopment of the entire care home.
The German-Canadian Care Home is licensed through Vancouver Coastal Health, which handles the admissions process. There are also a limited number of private pay/respite beds for short or longer terms stays that can be arranged directly with us.
