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

The new building design accommodates 160 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 9 rooms, and are connected to recreational and social areas.

The design incorporates a number of respite beds for seniors recovering from passing health crises. In addition, an adult day-care section offers social activities for seniors from the community.

In late 2016, the Society signed a Project Development Agreement with Vancouver Coastal Health for the development of a new, 162-bed care home. The new care home will be built on the site of the existing care home.

As a result part of the existing care home will be demolished to allow for the new construction. We will continue to provide care to about 50 residents in the West side building during the construction phase. The new German-Canadian Care Home is expected to open in early 2022.
