About Louis Brier Home and Hospital
Welcome to the Louis Brier Home & Hospital
Our mission at the Louis Brier Home & Hospital is to provide exemplary care to you and your family within a supportive and caring community, consistent with Jewish values and traditions. As innovative leaders in eldercare, our vision is to enrich the quality of life of Jewish seniors in everything we do.
Our values are encapsulated in the word CHAI – Hebrew for “Life”
We tailor our approach to meet your unique needs in consultation with both you and your family, and we treat everyone with compassion and respect. We value the cultural and ethnic differences people bring to the residence, and we provide opportunities for our staff, volunteers and companions to develop their knowledge and abilities.
Health and Safety
The ensured health and safety of our residents, employees and everyone who uses the residence is of paramount importance. We strive to create a positive work environment, free from harassment or bullying, and we share the responsibility for injury prevention with our employees and contractors.
We are effective stewards of public and donated resources. We measure the impact of our work and report regularly to our residents, families, directors and funders. We constantly strive to improve our performance through both innovation and research-based best practices.
We value every resident’s right to be involved in decisions about their care, and we value families’ participation in decisions affecting their loved ones. We communicate openly and constructively and deal with difficult issues in a timely and ethical manner.
At the heart of what matters to you
The Louis Brier Home & Hospital is located in the Oakridge area, at the heart of Vancouver’s Jewish community.
Our campus of care is located within a short stroll of the Oakridge Centre, the Jewish Community Centre, the shops of Kerrisdale and VanDusen Botanical Gardens, to name just a few nearby attractions.
The Louis Brier Home & Hospital is very much a community within a community, and we strive to give you as much choice as possible over matters affecting your day-to-day happiness and fulfillment. Our community is one that provides the comforts of home with the additional support of 24-hour nursing care. It’s where quality of life meets quality of care.
Our mission is nothing short of providing exemplary care to both you and your family within a supportive and caring community, consistent with Jewish values and traditions.
