We owe it to our parents and grandparents to have a place where they can receive care close to home, in the community in which they lived and raised a family for decades.
In 2014, Lions Manor in Steveston was demolished and its residents moved to a “temporary” facility. The old one was in disrepair, unsafe and horribly uncomfortable. In 2017, Vancouver Coastal Health began the planning process to rebuild Lions Manor.
In October 2020, the Richmond News reported a business case was to be completed later that year and Health Minister Adrian Dix stated that the plan was “well underway.”
Kelly Greene, now the MLA for Richmond-Steveston, blasted the Liberals during the election for not doing enough for seniors care in Richmond.
Even more silence.
My questions: Where’s the business plan? Is there actually a plan to bring proper seniors care back to Steveston? It’s time to bring Lions Manor back to Steveston.
