Lakeshore is a 56-bed long term care home with both private and semi-private rooms.

The long term care beds are a combination of funded and private pay. Lakeshore is a single-story residence with three wings and a central common area with an elegant, welcoming feel. There is an outdoor patio and spacious grounds for the enjoyment of the residents. 

We believe in providing a caring environment that nurtures the holistic well-being of residents, supports relationships within the community and encourages the growth and development of both residents and our care team. We deliver person-centred and best practice care in a respectful, caring and responsible manner by working together with our residents, their primary caregivers, families and Fraser Health. 

We believe our residents deserve excellence in care and we strive to achieve this by working as a team toward our common goal – A happy and healthy resident.
