Carefirst Campus of Care, provided an integrated service to seniors and community with 120 long-term care beds, a medical centre and a community hub. The Campus of Care will also provide the option of life lease housing with assisted living services. The Foundation aims to raise $7.5 million by 2025 from the community to support this $104.5 million capital project.

Why Give?

Carefirst Seniors started as an ethno-specific service provider in 1976, offering a single meals-on-wheels service for the Chinese community. Now Carefirst Seniors is serving 16,000 clients across multiple cultures annually and has become a renowned organization in providing a continuum of services from homecare, community support services to residential care.

Carefirst values seeking accreditation as a mean to fulfill our commitment to effective governance and risk management, as well as to support ongoing improvements to client care and safety across the organization.
