Care for Seniors Day

Care for Seniors Day on December 26, 2020

Imagine a senior with complex health conditions who can no longer live safely at home. After all other options are exhausted, a long-term care home is inevitably what he or she requires. There are different types of long-term care facilities, but a care home that can address the cultural needs of an individual will be the vital factor for whether the senior can continue to thrive and live with dignity.

Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project will build a reimagined complex care home where all seniors will have individual rooms with private washrooms and showers, maximizing residents’ comfort, privacy and dignity. The small household design of the new care home will also enhance residents’ sense of home, self-efficacy and autonomy.

Villa Cathay Care Home is organizing an online fundraising campaign, Care for Seniors Day 2020, on Saturday, December 26th, 2020 where all proceeds will go towards Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project. Care for Seniors Day will be a day packed with an online auction, a radio-a-thon at 2 local Chinese radio stations, various charity sales in our community, and an online talent show.

Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project is scheduled to complete by the end of 2021. Please join us and build a reimagined care home for seniors today and for generations to come!

Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project

Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project was launched in 2008 to rebuild and expand the aged Villa Cathay Care Home that was built in the 1970s. The original long-term care home was no longer at its best state to support the complex care needs of today’s aging population. To meet the growing demand for culturally focused long-term care, Villa Cathay embarked on a $72.9 million Rejuvenation Project to build a 224-bed complex senior nursing care home in two phases on its same site. Phase 1 was completed in 2019, and construction of Phase 2 has started this year with a completion date by the end of 2021.

Since Villa Cathay Care Home Rejuvenation Project is a capital development project, it does not quality for public funding.  As a non-profit organization, Villa Cathay Care Home needs to raise $5 million from the community to complete this project. We are raising the final $2.2 million to reach our fundraising goal.

Villa Cathay Rejuvenation Project will build a reimagined long-term care home, especially for Chinese seniors in the Lower Mainland. Now is the time to address the needs of the elderly, and potentially, for our loved ones in the future. The success of Care for Seniors Day will deeply depend on your support!
