Quality of Life Starts at Home

We are pleased to announce that the Quality of Life Starts at Home is now complete. In 2008 we set out an ambition goal to raise funds to renovate and refresh Yaletown House so that it feels more like a home versus an institution. Seven years later in 2015, thanks to our community, we achieved tremendous success! Our residents’ living environment has been greatly improved. Family and community feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Today, Yaletown House has a new look, a home like feel - and it looks fantastic!

What did we achieve? LOTS!!

Learn More

Yaletown House is conducting a $2.4 million capital campaign to renovate and revitalize the facility over the next five years. The facility is more than 20 years old, and requires renovations to address normal wear and tear as well as to better adapt to the needs of our seniors. As new admittances to Yaletown House come with higher needs than ever before, our existing facility needs to be modernized to meet physical, medical and cognitive conditions. This campaign will see the renovation of all four floors, resident rooms and the outdoor spaces. The result is that residents will be safer, more comfortable and better able to participate in programs, socialize with family and attend therapeutic programs.

Every Dollar Counts

There are many ways that you can support the campaign. Donations of any amount are welcome and every dollar will bring us closer to meeting our $2.4 million goal. Please consider:

  • Making a one-time gift
  • Pledging a larger amount over several years, or
  • Giving on a monthly basis through automatic withdrawal
