Providence Living at The Views

Inspired by dementia villages, this brand new home (under construction in Comox, BC), will transform long-term care. Residents will live in small households with private rooms and bathrooms. They’ll enjoy safe access to the outdoors and to the wider community. We’re proud to be part of this very compassionate “first” in publicly-funded seniors care.
