Queen’s Park Care Centre is a long term care facility situated in a park like environment across the street from beautiful Queen’s Park in New Westminster BC.

Queen’s Park Care Centre’s vision for long term care is: A caring place to live…a great place to work. To support, honor and celebrate the wisdom and diversity of our residents and clients in a person focused, caring environment.

A multicultural home, we strive to be on the leading edge of new programs and services for residents.

There are 148 publicly subsidized long term beds in our multicultural home.  While the majority of our rooms are shared (four bed rooms), we strive to be on the leading edge of new programs and services for residents.   Standard facility visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

All our food is prepared onsite in our fresh food kitchen.
