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 pastoral 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.

For more information about the origins of the German-Canadian Care Home, the current plans for a redevelopment of the facility and ethos, and the concept of ‘Comfortzeit®’ that defines the care home’s innovative new approach to elder care, please listen to The Canadian Business Quarterly’s interview with Jutta Purchase, CEO.
