About us

The German-Canadian Care Home is a 132-bed complex care home operated by the German-Canadian Benevolent Society of British Columbia. Our services include 24-hour professional nursing care, social work and spiritual care, rehabilitation and recreation services, meals, housekeeping and laundry.

We have single rooms with a private washroom and double rooms with a shared washroom. Rooms are furnished with a bed and a night table, and residents may bring some furniture upon request. New residents are generally admitted to a double room until a single room becomes available.

Room rates are set by Vancouver Coastal Health and are income-based.


We are working towards the development of a new, state-of-the-art care home that will enhance our ability to provide high quality services and innovative care to our residents.

The new building design accommodates 178 residents. It looks and feels like a residential space while being fully equipped for the delivery of complex care. Individual suites are nested in intimate “home units” consisting of 11 to 13 rooms and are connected to recreational and social areas.

The design incorporates a separate home with several, short-term respite beds for seniors recovering from passing health crises. In addition, an adult day-care section offers social activities for seniors from the community.

The redevelopment project has continued to slowly but steadily progress. Discussions with main external stakeholders, which are Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH), BC Housing and the City of Vancouver, have continued to progress towards securing the necessary funding and development approvals.

Parallel to the negotiations with VCH and the City of Vancouver, discussions with BC Housing as lender are ongoing and the redevelopment committee is working towards achieving a financing commitment by early 2024 to coincide with VCH approvals. The redevelopment committee is pleased with the progress that has been made on the project and is hopeful that significant approval milestones will be reached in the coming months.
