Residential Care has been called by other names including Long-Term Care and Nursing Home Care, depending on where you are from, and when you became familiar with the concept. Simpson Manor provides complex residential care services for persons requiring 24-hour professional nursing care.
Simpson Manor offers three categories of care services:
Simpson Manor offers care services that are paid for privately by the Resident and not subsidized by Fraser Health nor the Province or British Columbia. An assessment by Fraser Health is not required for admission when the resident is paying the full cost of care.
British Columbia residents may seek a subsidy for residential care services from the British Columbia Ministry of Health. To determine your eligibility and level of funding available please contact the Fraser Health Authority Central Intake Office at 604-953-4965.
Respite care is short-term accommodation in a residential care facility which provides temporary relief to those who are caring for family members. Typically respite stays are 4 to 14 days. Simpson Manor accepts Residents up to 30 days, and as few at two nights for frequent Residents.
Our Care Team is led and supervised by the Director of Care who oversees the provision of care including medication delivery, meals and nutrution, housekeeping and laundry, personal assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing or grooming and a comprehensive recreational and activities program.
Upon admission to Simpson Manor, each resident will have a individualized care plan designed with input from the Resident, their family and our Interdisclipinary Care Team, which includes our care staff, medical coordinator, physician, dietitian, and other professionals whom assist with care.
At Simpson Manor, our Person-Centred Care Philosophy means each Resident is considered unique and we provide care which is tailored for each Resident. We provide a comprehensive recreation program. Our kitchen provides three nutritious meals a day and snacks are offered and available in between meals. Mobile Services, also known as Allied Services, provide additional services which are not provided within Residential Care base service.
Simpson's approach to providing residential complex care is set up as a team approach, which includes staff from all areas of employment in the facility, who pride themselves as being part of the "Family Unit".

The Family Unit continually evaluates information and gathers input from family, medical staff, recreational activity staff, dietary staff, and other caregivers through a variety of methods and technologies.
We continually enhance our skills and abilities to meet the increasing care needs of our Residents, with regular training, in-services and external education programs.
