We have an in-house Social Worker who supports residents and families from the day of admission. We pay particular attention to changes related to the residents’ health and emotional conditions.
Our Social Worker advocates for the practical and psycho-social needs of all new residents. Supportive counseling is provided to both residents and family members during the transition.
Our Social Worker may also assist with advance care planning, liaise with government benefits offices, and facilitate access to HandyDART services, Red Cross equipment loan program and Public Guardian and Trustee. For a complete list of external services click here.
Every day, our residents enjoy a rotating menu of Chinese cuisines, with additional afternoon & evening snacks. Our registered dietitians design and supervise the process to ensure that we meet the individual dietary needs of all our residents.
We have an on-site kitchen team who prepare our nutritional meals with fresh ingredients every day. Alternative nutritious entrees and vegetarian options are available on request.
We provide housekeeping services to all residents, using certified eco-friendly products whenever possible.
Laundry service is for personal clothing. Specialty items are available with a surcharge.

As a part of our interdisciplinary services, since 2017, Villa Cathay has been in partnership with the UBC Geriatric Dentistry Program to provide our residents with in-house teeth cleaning and maintenance services once a week.
