Our Plan to Redevelop Inglewood Care Centre

Built in 1963, Inglewood Care Centre at Taylor Way and Inglewood Avenue currently provides 230 Long Term Care beds funded by Vancouver Coastal Health. The building remains in use but is rapidly coming to the end of its serviceable life.

Baptist Housing acquired Inglewood Care Centre in early 2020 with a commitment to invest in seniors care and provide much-needed housing for them in West Vancouver by reimagining and expanding the seniors housing options available at Inglewood Care Centre.

Baptist Housing is an experienced and reputable non-profit seniors housing provider with 21 residences around B.C. and a mission to create environments that enable the holistic wellness of residents, team members, visitors, and community members. Our reputation as a non-profit is built on more than 55 years of investing in communities like West Vancouver.

A Canadian First: We’ll build a “Continuum of Care” at Inglewood

  • A ”Continuum of Care” enables seniors to live in the kind of residence best suited to them, even if that should change as they age.
  • Our residents will be able to age within the same community, while remaining close to friends, family and familiar supports.
  • The Continuum of Care allows spouses to remain close to each other in the same community, even if their individual levels of care start to differ.

 

A Broad Range of Housing Options in One Community

Interconnection 2

 

PHASE ONE

Long Term Care

  • Continuity of existing full-time personalized care in a supportive and secure environment
  • 230 funded suites developed in partnership with Vancouver Coastal Health Authority accessible to all regardless of income
  • Residents in current 230 suites will stay in existing homes during construction and move into new long-term care residence (phase one) when complete.
  • 69 private pay suites offered as monthly rentals.

 

PHASE TWO

Offering additional options for care and suites through a broad range of affordability levels like those offered at other Baptist Housing residences ensures this opportunity does not discriminate based on income, providing the optimal amount of benefit to West Vancouver seniors.

Also important to this approach is the provision of affordable team member and workforce housing to create a vibrant new community.

Assisted Living

  • 50 private pay suites offered as monthly rentals for seniors who enjoy independent living and who may need some assistance with daily tasks
  • Affordable Housing
  • 50 subsidized rental suites for seniors and 105 affordable suites for team members and workforce
  • Developed in partnership with BC Housing
  • BC Housing will provide construction grants between $100,000 - $140,000 per suite
  • BC Housing will provide an additional $300 monthly rent subsidy per suite

Independent Living & Life Lease

  • 70 condominium style suites offered as monthly rentals for active adults able to live independently but enjoy having hospitality services on request
  • 125 Life Lease suites available for lease/purchase with a guaranteed return on sale at end of residency
  • Proceeds from the lease/sale of Life Lease suites will contribute to affordability of rental housing suites.

A Continuum of Care

Baptist Housing is committed to providing exceptional holistic care, assisting seniors to experience life well in supportive communities. Central to the re-design of Inglewood is creating an environment that honours the individual and responds to the needs of West Vancouver through social and community benefits.

Important to this approach is the provision of affordable team member and workforce housing, enabling Inglewood to bring together people from many of life’s stages and create a vibrant new community – a first in Canada.

Inglewood achieves this by enabling seniors to age within their community, close to friends, family and familiar supports. The Continuum of Care allows spouses to remain close to each other while their individual level of care needs change.

Offering options for care and suites through a broad range of affordability levels ensures this opportunity does not discriminate based on income, providing the optimal amount of benefit to West Vancouver seniors.
