More Information

All 88 beds at Renfrew Care Centre in Vancouver’s East Side are funded through the Continuing Care department of the Vancouver/Richmond Health Board.

To the entire Renfrew Care Centre Staff. Thank you all for taking such good care of my father, Don Jolly for almost 9 years. He really enjoyed his time at Renfrew, and told me many times how much he appreciated the loving and caring people at Renfrew.

He enjoyed all the staff – including Loraine, Carol, Debbie, Fran, the nursing staff, the kitchen staff (thanks for all the special orders, service and patience, and the maintenance crew that helped him out!) You all are GREAT! No wonder the Renfrew Care Centre is recognized as one of the best in Canada!
