GLACIER VIEW LODGE - COMOX VALLEY

A COMPLEX CARE FACILITY LOCATED ON VANCOUVER ISLAND

OUR MODEL OF CARE

Our holistic approach to care at Glacier View Lodge flows from our Mission Statement and our Resident Bill of Rights. We embrace each person – resident, family member, staff member and volunteer as an integral part of our community as a whole and a valued member of the care team.

We believe in the Eden Alternative Philosophy, as described by Dr. William Thomas.  He believes that seniors suffer from "loneliness, helplessness and boredom".  At Glacier View Lodge we are "committed to creating a human habitat where life revolves around close and continuing contact with plants, animals and people of all ages."
