Inglewood Care Centre

Inglewood Care Centre

Located in beautiful West Vancouver, British Columbia, Inglewood is very easily accessible from the Upper Levels Highway (Highway #1) at Taylor Way. Our 235 Residents live in four distinct living areas, depending upon their care needs. Although the individuals who Resident here do require medical care, we do not refer to them as "patients", but as "Residents". Our philosophy is that Inglewood is their home and that all of our Residents are unique and important individuals with rich histories.

To foster this home-like environment, we provide each Resident with a high standard of care that promotes and enhances his or her quality of life. Many of our Residents are able to enjoy wonderful views from our location; some of the rooms look out to the snow capped North Shore Mountains, and others to the Vancouver skyline and Stanley Park. We offer several enclosed garden terrace areas for quiet visits and walks.

Inglewood Care Centre is divided into different areas: the Lodge, the Manor, and the Upper and Lower Terraces, all are described below. An individual's level of care determines which area of the building can best manage their needs - an individual's care needs may be either Intermediate Care or Extended Care. The terminology can be confusing - for your reference, we have provided a glossary of terms that you will hear the professionals using regularly (see Appendix A in our Resident & Family Handbook).

We encourage anyone considering accommodation at Inglewood become familiar with our Resident & Family Handbook which is available for download. This Handbook provides more specific information about the services we offer than the website does.
