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 Providence Living on April 1, 2019. This was made possible when the Bishop of Victoria (previous owner of St. Joseph’s) and Providence Living reached an agreement in which the ownership and operations of St. Joseph’s would transfer to Providence Living.
St. Joseph’s and Providence Living 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 Providence Living includes The Views’ 165 complex-care long-term care beds and 4 hospice beds.
St. Joseph’s and Providence Living 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 the sustainability and renewal of its residential care homes, Providence Health Care is envisioning the transfer of its seniors’ care sites to Providence Living. Providence Living's mandate is to focus on seniors' care specifically through our exciting vision to develop “Dementia Villages” and communities of care in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island.
The following sites and homes will become part of Providence Living 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.
