Canada’s first seniors’ community designed for those suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia is set to open in Langley this July.

Dubbed “The Village,” the project has a series of one-storey buildings, including cabins and a community centre, spread across five acres.

Providence Residential and Community Care (PRCC) announced plans late January to build a similar village in Comox.

A similar site has been announced for the former Mount St. Vincent’s hospital site.
