Hawthorne Seniors Care Community is a multi-building residential care facility. The Lodge is a single storey building of three wings, each with access to an outdoor patio.
The Cottages are housed in two single-storey buildings each divided into four self-contained “cottages” for seven residents. Each cottage has its own living room, dining room, kitchen and laundry area and most of the rooms are single. Secured gardens are accessible from each cottage. The Cottages program is custom built and resourced to provide care to ambulatory residents living with dementia. Owned and operated by Port Coquitlam Senior Citizen’s Housing Society.

- All rooms have two-piece bathrooms; many have ceiling lifts for easier transfers in and out of bed.
- Residents may also bring small personal items of furniture (small dresser, TV, chair) to personalize the room.
- Recreational opportunities include recreational therapists and buses for outings.
