The Czorny Alzheimer Centre is a secure setting designed to provide psychological security and comfort in six home-like cottage living spaces: Rose Garden, Sweet Pea, Pansy Lane, Poppy Place, Lavender Way, and Sunflower Garden.

The care home evolved from a family donation where the donor wished to create a home like environment for people living with a dementia and their family. The home cares for 72 people who have a dementia and follows the principles of the Eden philosophy and a social model of care.

The environment serves to enrich the residents’ lives through activities appropriate for people with Alzheimer’s disease. The centre is sited in the quiet serenity of a small country street and local farms. The gardens at Czorny provide a beautiful backdrop for walking and visiting. Operated by Fraser Health.

There are 72 publicly subsidized residential care beds at the centre. All rooms are single occupancy rooms.
