Our Care

Villa Cathay Care Home is a non-profit 154-bed facility with round-the-clock professional nursing care to monitor the health of our residents and address changes in their medical needs. The interdisciplinary approach assures that physical health and psychological wellbeing are equally emphasized. Professional care, a cultural appropriate environment, and the comfort of home make Villa Cathay a special and unique place to meet the needs of many seniors and their families.

In caring for our seniors, Villa Cathay applies a holistic, individualized approach with care plans developed to meet each individual resident’s care needs, preferences, and characteristics. Transitioning to living in a care home and rebuilding the sense of wellbeing and self-worth can be a stressful process. The culturally oriented environment at Villa Cathay provides better opportunities for residents to communicate and connect with their caregivers and fellow residents thus easing the resident’s insecurities and provides comfort while they are adjusting to their new surroundings, making the transition of becoming a part of the Villa Cathay family less intimidating.

Professional Health Care

A team of registered health care professionals, including nurses, dietician, and social worker, are on staff in at Villa Cathay. Our team works closely with the resident’s physician, the contracted pharmacist, visiting physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other external providers to achieve the individualized care. At Villa Cathay, licensed nurses (including RN, RPN, and LPN) provide round-the-clock care for our residents. Assessments, administering medication, care planning, and chronic disease management are examples of routine duties our professional care team provides.

Personal Care

Professionally trained care aides work collaboratively with residents, family members, and the health care team to assist residents with the required daily activities for personal care. Personal care, including feeding, personal hygiene, grooming, dressing, toileting, and mobility, is provided to complement each senior’s ability to live as safely and independently as possible. Honouring individualized preferences and preserving dignity are essential in our personal care plan.
