About

The Eldercare Foundation raises and manages funds dedicated to supporting the provision of an enhanced quality of life for older people on Vancouver Island.  Our mission, in partnership with our donors, is to ensure that our community supports and embraces aging with respect and dignity.  We fund equipment, home-like enhancements and special programs to enhance quality of life for hundreds of residents who call Glengarry, Aberdeen, Mt. Tolmie, Priory, Heritage Woods and Oak Bay Lodge ‘home’. 

To help people stay in their own homes longer, we also provide funding to support the West Shore, Oak Bay Lodge and Mobile Adult Day Programs,  the Community Bathing Program, the Piercy Respite Hotel and the Yakimovich Wellness Centre.  Additionally, Eldercare provides funding for staff education and research and, through our Embrace Aging initiative, is working to form partnerships with like-minded organizations on Vancouver Island to ensure our valued elders get the support they need to navigate their journey of aging.
