Our Sites & Services
We are uniquely qualified and positioned to deliver specialized seniors and community care because of our history of faith-based compassionate care delivery, and the ability to develop land we own in a way that supports our mission.
The Views at St. Joseph’s – Comox, Vancouver Island
The Views at St. Joseph’s joined the Providence Residential & Community Care Services Society (PRCC) on April 1, 2019. This was made possible when the Bishop of Victoria (previous owner of St. Joseph’s) and PRCC reached an agreement in which the ownership and operations of St. Joseph’s would transfer to PRCC.
St. Joseph’s and PRCC believe this ownership change provides a way for even more innovation for the future of seniors in the Comox Valley and across B.C. Together, we can best achieve the long-term mission of providing innovative care for seniors through a comprehensive range of services for the Comox Valley.
The transfer to PRCC includes The Views’ 116 complex-care residential beds and 4 hospice beds. The 21 temporary residential care beds currently housed at The Views have also transferred to PRCC. The Ministry of Health has indicated that as part of a proposed re-development plan for The Views, the temporary residential beds will become permanent.
St. Joseph’s and PRCC share a joint commitment to strengthening compassionate seniors care in the Comox Valley. As the seniors’ population in this area continues to grow, the need for quality care and services – particularly for dementia patients – is also increasing.
Future Care Homes & Sites
As part of the strategy to ensure sustainability and renewal of its residential care homes, Providence Health Care will be transferring its seniors’ care sites to PRCC. PRCC’s mandate is to focus on seniors care specifically through PRCC’s exciting vision to develop “Dementia Villages” and communities of care in Vancouver and Vancouver Island.
The following sites and homes will become part of PRCC to operate in the future:
- Holy Family Hospital Residential Care
- Mount Saint Joseph Residential Care
- St. Vincent’s: Langara
- St. Vincent’s: Brock Fahrni
- St. Vincent’s: Honoria Conway-Heather
- Youville Residence
The transition of our current care homes into more home-like neighbourhoods can be enabled through our well-planned, bold vision – one built on partnerships with residents, families, communities, and like-minded organizations focused on improving the lives of the most vulnerable members of society.
