The Heights at Mt. View is a 7-storey, 260-suite Residence located in Saanich, BC. As a complex care residence, The Heights at Mt. View will offer 24/7 care, and will replace the suites at Mount Edwards Court Care Home and Central Care Home. The essence of the design approach at The Heights at Mt. View is Resident-centered care. It is design that exceeds operational requirements and is inspired by the individuals who will call the residence home.
With construction underway, The Heights at Mt. View is scheduled to open Fall 2014. This innovative project is part of a regional plan and partnership with the Province of British Columbia, Vancouver Island Health Authority, the Capital Regional Hospital District and Baptist Housing to replace obsolete residential care facilities in the Capital Region, and provide more care and housing options for the growing senior population.

Each floor is organized into a series of houses accommodating 20 Residents. Each house contains a central living area that serves as the heart of the house, and each Resident is provided a private room with a full ensuite bathoom.
Residents will have their own private suite, including a washroom with a European style shower. Suites will be furnished but Residents will be encouraged to bring their own personal touches to make their suite feel like home. The Residential Care suites are all funded by Vancouver Island Health Authority.
The first level of the building also plays host to a variety of amenity spaces that Residents can enjoy with family and friends. This amenity space includes a bustling café area, an open performance space for events such as Christmas concerts and chapel services, a towne hall for meetings, a private event room that can be used for meeting space or enjoyed by family members for functions, a wellness centre, a hair salon, a landscaped courtyard with seating and a terrace area.
Part of a Campus of Care, The Heights at Mt. View is adjacent to Carey Place, an affordable seniors rental building. The Heights is located on Carey Road, with easy access to transit, shopping and community services.
