South House

What is so special about St. Davids House?

St. Davids House offers a "home within a home" to the lonely, elderly man or woman who, though relatively fit for his or her years, is no longer willing or able to live alone and indeed, may be at risk.
 
It also offers a warm family style home and a balance between privacy, companionship, security and independence, combined with the special caring element provided by dedicated volunteers.
 
 
 
 
Age and loneliness are the prime considerations for residence, together with level of health and compatibility with other residents.
 
St. Davids House provide supportive care and a lifestyle that the elderly are accustomed to and one that reminds them of home rather than an institution. Thus each house creates a sense of "belonging" for the residents and this has made the St. Davids House such a success. It is a time proven fact that many residents take on a new lease on life.

Residents

The St. Davids House family is made up of people of all faiths and backgrounds who are reasonably healthy, alert and mobile. The most important qualifications are loneliness and the desire to live with other seniors in a family atmosphere.
 

Sponsors

As each resident is independent, they are required to have a sponsor, usually but not always a family member, whom the resident contacts in case of illness, and for assistance with appointments, laundry,   personal shopping, room housekeeping etc. A sponsor's responsibility is to provide support and encouragement to the resident and take an active personal interest in their wellbeing.


Testimonial

 
"I have lived in this facility for over 3 years and highly recommend it to seniors who are looking for a facility that provides trouble free accommodation that includes superior home cooked meals, friendship, comfort and a home like atmosphere. The building is a single story very well maintained stair free facility with personal small garden plots just outside individual outside doors I have lived in the very expensive senior’s facility in Ladner and find this facility not only cheaper but far and away superior to that type of facility. Each building has 9 residents which all become fast friends and very important social contact while still providing for privacy. I am recovering from a quite severe medical event and it was so great to come home to my friends who were very supportive and concerned during my quick recovery. In summary, if you decide to stay, WELCOME to your new home”
