The BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA) would like to extend a big welcome to its newest member – Kinsmen Lodge in Surrey. Located right beside Surrey Memorial Hospital, Kinsmen Lodge has been proudly offering seniors’ care since 1975 and it champions the Eden Alternative, a principle-based philosophy to transform institutional approaches to care into a community where life is worth living. In 2012, residents moved into their new purpose built home for complex care.
“Having recently met with CEO Kathleen Kennedy-Strath, I was really impressed with her wealth of knowledge of the continuing care sector in BC,” says BCCPA Director of Membership Services and Sponsorship Hart Dashevsky. “Her vast experience in seniors’ care will help to strengthen the advocacy and representation for members of the BCCPA.”
