St. Vincent's: Langara


Our social workers work with you and your family to make transfers occur as smoothly as possible.

There are times when we need to move residents from one room to another. For example, this may happen if there is a change in your health, a need for special equipment, or noises that disturb you or others. We will talk with you about the reason for the move and what will need to happen. On occasion we may need to move a resident to another facility. This may happen – if you are seriously ill and we agree that you need medical care beyond what we can give you and transfer you to hospital; if you need a special type of care that is only provided in certain facilities; or you are offered a spot at another care home that you chose earlier as the care home of your choice. Our social worker works with you and your family to make these transfers as easy as possible.
