Seniors in the Comox Valley will soon have access to innovative, long-term care focusing on those living with dementia. The former St. Joseph’s General Hospital has plans to turn into an outstanding dementia village designed to support a philosophy of care that promotes freedom of movement, safe access to the outdoors, and interactions with the community. Residents will be able to bake, look after pets, tend to garden areas, work in the General Store, join art and music therapy programs, and much more! Construction for this exciting new project is expected to begin in winter 2022.
In the future, using the entire 14-acre current site in Comox, Providence Living envisions creating a vibrant campus of care with various levels of housing and care options to support seniors and their partners to age in a single place on site. This will allow seniors to be able to live independently on the site for as long as possible, within walking distance of amenities, businesses, and all of the supports they need in a safe, secure village.
As plans for this rebuild unfold, The Views remains dedicated to excellent care for all residents, today and in the future.
