Inglewood Care Centre was built in 1963. Although it has been updated over time, its 230 long term care beds cannot meet West Vancouver’s current or projected needs.
Many families face the prospect of needing to find housing for their loved ones in communities that are farther away, such as Surrey and Langley.
As well, Inglewood currently does not meet Vancouver Coastal Health design guidelines for quality of care and health and safety standards.
Our community’s population is aging and its complex care needs are increasing. As housing costs continue to go up, there is a recognized need for suitable, affordable housing and social supports.
