Laying the Foundation For Dementia Villages and Seniors Community of Care

More than $3 million from the estates of Beatris and Peter Jurazs is being used in the delivery of Holy Family’s household innovation project (HIP), with the goal of adapting the existing care home into one that feels more like a home than a work space.

The changes to the north wing of Holy Family reflect the attributes of the new dementia villages and community of care Providence Residential & Community Care Services Society (PRCC) envisions for both Vancouver and Comox, based on the principles of the De Hogeweyk model in the Netherlands.
