What could be more important than caring for our loved ones, at every stage of their life? A point may come, though, when you feel that you cannot care for someone directly because you do not have the time or skills to provide the care that they really need. Finding the right senior care home for your loved one is a hard but important process.
Or maybe you are currently considering moving into a care home, whether by yourself or with your spouse. The decision is not any easier, as you know yourself better than anyone else and it can be difficult to give some of your independence away to strangers.
You will find a few good senior care homes in Victoria BC, and we would like to share with you which ones we think are the best. Before you make any decisions, make sure you feel comfortable with the staff who work at the home. Every elderly care home will have a different way of making decisions and doing everyday care, so you should find out what each home’s practices are. How is care completed, and how are meals prepared and served? What kind of leisure activities are available? The following elderly care homes provide 24-hour care for people with various levels of need.

Food is prepared by chefs daily, and they provide an activities calendar every month to keep residents moving.
