Interested in moving to the Korean Canadian Floor?
Here’s what you need to do:
- Most people already receive services from Fraser Health before requiring Long Term Care. If you have a community case manager, talk to them about making New Vista Care Home your Preferred Care Home.
- You may also contact the Home Health Service Line at 1-855-412-2121 to request an assessment or call Fraser Health Community Access at 604-519-8500 if you are already assessed and awaiting Long Term Care.
- A community case manager will come to your home and complete an assessment to determine your care needs and your eligibility for Long Term Care.
Rose of Sharon Village & Pine Tree Way: 2nd Floor
The Korean Community has had a long standing vision to see seniors with dementia and health challenges cared for in a culturally sensitive way and with a donation of $1,500,000 from generous donor, Mrs. Eunice Oh and the Rose of Sharon Foundation, New Vista is pleased to be able to offer such a service.
The second floor of the new building is dedicated to culturally sensitive care for up to 40 Korean Canadian Seniors. Food service and recreational therapies will be offered based on resident needs and input from the Korean Canadian community. Even the décor was designed to enhance familiarity and promote calm.
The New Vista Society has been part of Burnaby for over 75 years and the partnership is a shining example of fulfilling the vision of founder, Ernest Winch, for integrated communities and enrichment. Twenty percent of seniors in New Vista’s independent housing buildings are from the Korean community.
Being able to provide an example of how to integrate, welcome and provide respectful, responsible care for our Korean Canadian immigrants is a proud achievement for New Vista.
Many members of BC’s Korean community have become patrons with regular donations going towards supporting Korean programming and meals
Anyone wanting to make a donation, or become a patron, can donate here through our website, or contact the CEO directly by calling 604-521- 7764.
