About Us

Who we are

Providence Living is committed to improving both the environment and experience of older British Columbians living in long-term care. Driven by research and global best practices, Providence Living is a leader in creating innovative services, homes, neighbourhoods and communities in which people can imagine themselves and their loved ones living full and realized lives.

Created by Providence Health Care, but now a stand-alone, non-profit organization with its own board and management structure, Providence Living will remain closely aligned with Providence Health Care as it grows and expands.

We are bound by the common belief that compassion connected to faith-based principles results in resident care that feels like it comes from family, and is provided in a place that feels like home.

Our mission, vision & values

We are a Catholic health care community…

Inspired by the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, we are a Catholic health care community dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of those served through compassionate care, teaching and research.

Our values are rooted in the values, history and tradition of our Founding Sisters that arrived in British Columbia more than 125 years ago and established numerous Catholic hospitals and care homes.

At Providence Living, we create space for the individuality, joy and spontaneity that make life rich and fulfilling. We innovate, challenge conventions, and most of all listen long and hard to the real experts: the people living in our care communities and their families.

Our values guide the care we provide to your loved ones.


We nurture the God-given creativity, love and compassion that dwell within us all.
