Helping Build Vancouver Island’s First Publicly Funded ‘Dementia Village’ - inspired care facility

Providence Living is building Vancouver Island's first-ever publicly-funded long-term care home based on the concepts of a “dementia village" in Comox, BC, in partnership with Island Health and the Ministry of Health.

The new care home will consist of 156 beds and will provide amenities for residents and the community that include community gardens, child daycare, Island Health-funded adult day programs, a community space, art studio, bistro, and chapel.

“Inspired by the dementia village in De Hogeweyk, Netherlands, the Comox dementia village will have small, self-contained households of 12 residents where each resident will have her or his own room and bathroom, contributing to heightened infection control in a modern space. Smaller groupings of residents will be created based on cultural bonds, friendships and social activities. Residents will take part in everyday activities within the household or wider, secure village, and gain a sense of belonging by being involved in food preparation, cooking and laundry.”
