Seniors Care Demand Increasing at Rapid Pace
According to Statistic Canada, by 2036 seniors in Canada will represent around one-quarter of the country's population. With the growing senior population, there is an increasing demand for seniors care and other elderly care. Despite the challenge, Wing Kei will continue to extend its expertise and excellence to reach more people through the development of new facilities, and through new programs and services.
The Wing Kei Spirit
From the very beginning, Wing Kei has embodied a single purpose: to serve seniors with the dedication they deserve. This culture of love and service - the Wing Kei Spirit - permeates our facilities, inspires our staff and volunteers, and nurtures our residents and their families. Together, we build a sense of home, a place with familiar language, food, and environment. We function as a big family. Staff relate to residents as they would to their own parents, keeping them comfortable, content and safe.
In order to continue with our expansion to benefit more seniors and families in our community, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Make a donation today, or start your own fundraising page to help us reach our goal!
