Philosophy of Care

This Campus of Care, in the beautiful Comox Valley, is located near downtown Courtenay as well as other shopping centres and services. Comox Valley Seniors Village, opened in the spring of 2009 and is a complete Campus of Care of Independent/Assisted Living and Residential Care facilities.

Casa Loma, well known to long-time residents of the area, sits on an adjoining property and has 125 Independent/Assisted Living Suites.
