Phase 2: Long Term Care

We live in a community that is rapidly aging – the oldest in our region. Over the next 15 years, our senior population will grow from 19% to 25%. With a residential care facility that is already straining to meet demands, we are simply not prepared to adequately support the complex healthcare needs of this growing population.

Delta Hospital’s Long Term Care facility Mountain View Manor first opened in 1980, and is in desperate need of an expansion and upgrade. Our goal is to increase the number of beds available in our community, and create a facility that is able to meet best practice standards for elder care. There is so much more we could be doing to make sure our elderly are comfortable, and have access to the best care. Care that respects their dignity, honors their privacy and healthcare rights, and allows them to remain active members of our community, for as long as possible.

Mountain View Manor has always provided exemplary and heartfelt care – even in an outdated building. The age and layout of this facility has slowed further improvements in patient care, innovation, and enhancements to services.

A modernized facility will allow our staff to continue to offer the human touch that our patients and their families have come to rely on, but with improved privacy, comfort, services, and access to hospital and other specialized healthcare providers. We want to provide an environment that is conducive to recovery, and relieves stress on residents and their caregivers.  

This is a long overdue project that will provide aging residents with the opportunity to stay in the community they love, surrounded by friends, family and the amenities to which they’ve become accustomed. It’s an opportunity to age in place, secure in the knowledge that the support and services they need are right on their door step. 

In partnership with Fraser Health, the Foundation has committed to the development of a business case for a new and unique residential care facility that will serve a dual purpose of providing both long term care and home health services.
