Built in 2008, Sunridge Place the Arbours, a complex care facility was constructed of five side-by-side buildings. Each is separated by beautiful gardens which are accessible from the main floor and viewable from patios on the second floor. The buildings join together by a corridor running through the centre of the site, called the "Street". On either side of the Street there are resident care units we call houses.
There are a total of 17 houses we group into four neighbourhoods, one of which is specially designed for dementia care. The center building also houses the resident activity area, kitchen, laundry, reception and administrative offices.
Sunridge Place sits on an entire city block which also has a four storey Assisted Living apartment called the Meadows. The Meadows and the Arbours provide a campus of care.
Fireside lounge, hair salon, courtyards, common lounge, dining room, bistro, conference room.
Sunridge Place is located in Duncan British Columbia in the central area of the community with great access to services and amenities within the neighbourhood. It is a very walkable community. We offer a state of the art facility within a Campus or “Community of Care”.
Philosophy of Care
Through the fellowship of a united team spirit, the owners, staff, families, volunteers and allied professionals create a bond between them that fosters a welcoming, respectful and supportive community for all residents.
Accreditation is an external peer review process to assess and improve the services health care organizations provide to their patients and clients, based on standards of excellence set by Accreditation Canada. For more information, visit here: http://www.accreditation.ca.
