Delta: The B.C. government said a new high-quality long-term care home with 200 beds will be constructed in Delta.
According to a press release issued by the province, Fraser Health will construct and operate the long-term care community on vacant land at the Delta Hospital site.
The project is in the procurement phase with construction expected to begin in 2025 and be complete in 2027.
The province said during the design phase, First Nations will partner with Fraser Health to design a culturally safe care home.
The new care homes will replace the 92 beds at Mountain View Manor, which is 46 years old, and add 108 new beds, the province added.
“The new facility will include the social and recreational spaces found in a typical home, such as a living room, dining room, activity space and access to the outdoors. As well, an innovative stand-alone child daycare facility will be constructed and offer 49 spaces for families,” the province added.
“Ensuring seniors across B.C. have confidence that when they age, they will receive care services that will allow them to stay healthy, active and safe in their community is a priority for our government. That’s why we continue to take meaningful action and invest in care homes, like the one in Delta, to ensure people have access to home-like care in the community,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of Health.
