Philosophy of Care:

Like all Park Place Seniors Living care sites, Piccadilly Care Centre is committed to enriching the lives of seniors. Our care is resident-centred and revolves around the individual needs of each resident. A “Resident’s Day” document is prepared for each resident based on each individual’s choices about how he or she wishes to live at Piccadilly Care Centre. Family may also help identify the resident’s preferred choices for food, sleeping times, activities and more.

Palliative care and end-of-life services, including eligibility assessment and the provision of medical assistance in dying (MAiD), are available at this care home.

Type of Accommodation: Piccadilly Care Centre is a new facility, opened in 2008, which offers 51 beds subsidized and accessed through Interior Health plus up to eight private pay beds.
Cost:

Monthly rate is up to 80 per cent of client’s after tax income, with minimum and maximum rates set by the Ministry of Health Services. More information.​

Special Recreation:
  • With the assistance of a volunteer who is a horticulturalist,  gardens designed to serve residents with dementia are in development. The project also includes development of wheelchair accessible, enabled gardens plus a ‘sensory garden’, which is designed to be enjoyed through touch, sound and scent in addition to sight.  In 2012, Piccadilly residents joined in a company-wide Sunflower growing competition.
  • Piccadilly’s recreation co-ordinator has developed a chair hockey league among local facilities. Residents take a keen interest in playing on their facility team(s) and in the outcome of matches with other care facilities.
  • A special event every year is the Tribute to Seniors Strawberry Tea, which is held during Seniors Week at all Park Place care homes and residences.
  • A walking program encourages residents to walk the halls, with distances plotted on a central map, with a designated destination. Wheelchair ‘miles’ are also plotted as are those racked up using Wii games. The ‘travel’ is interspersed with special treats and events which relate to the places on the map. In 2010, residents ‘walked’ to Whistler to celebrate the Olympics. Completion of the journey was marked by an Olympic celebration at Piccadilly.
  • Community contact and the rewards of service are  maintained through two programs. Residents able to sew make quilts for the new homeless shelter and are also knitting toques and mittens. In addition, residents clean, dress and style the hair of dolls donated to the local thrift store, which are then returned to the store to be sold.
