Volunteer at Westhaven

About Westhaven

Westhaven Multi Level Care opened in 2001 and is a 32-bed complex care facility located in close proximity to the West Coast General Hospital. Westhaven also has a 4-bed Transitional Care Unit, where there is more emphasis on activation, rehabilitation and an eventual return home to the community.

The “Friends of Westhaven Society” was formed in 2006 with the goal to provide additional service and fundraising activities to support the residents and staff of the facility. They have embarked on an ambitious campaign to provide the money to develop a community partnership garden with greenhouse and raised garden beds.
