Village by the Station is a unique community offering seniors multiple levels of support and the opportunity to age in place.

Village by the Station includes 60 private residential care suites, each equipped with a bathroom including a wheelchair accessible shower. All suites are furnished with a hospital style bed, night table, dresser and side chair. Residents are encouraged to bring some of their own belongings, such as a chair, lamp, pictures, quilt or bedspread to personalize their room.

Good Samaritan Canada and Interior Health Authority (IHA) work together to coordinate the placement of appropriate clients to Village by the Station.

There are 4 dementia care cottages that have been designed as duplexes to create a home-like setting for up to ten clients. Each half of the duplex has 5 bedrooms, living room with fireplace, kitchen and secure access to a fenced yard. Clients are included in the events of daily living to the extent that they are accustomed and able.

The care component of the dementia care program is based more on a social rather than a medical model of care. Personal autonomy and competencies are emphasized. Residents can participate in daily activities associated with a home-like environment. These kinds of opportunities are difficult, if not impossible, to offer in large care centres.
