Support Workers

Our experienced support workers provide food services, laundry, maintenance and housekeeping. In the new Care Home, laundry and kitchen are located on the main floor with a dedicated service elevator. The Food Services department operates in a state-of-the-art kitchen which is managed by an experienced member of the Canadian Society of Nutrition Managers, the Pacific Society of Nutrition Managers and holds a certificate in Nutrition Science from Stanford University. A Korean cook provides meals for our Korean Canadian seniors on the 2nd floor who are thankful for the familiar and distinct cuisine.
