Fraser Health’s facility for citizens with complex care needs, dementia and acquired brain injury opened its doors in Mission on Tuesday, April 2, 2014.
The Residence in Mission (TRIM), on the site of Mission Memorial Hospital, features 192 private suites and four double occupancy suites for couples.
The Residence is one part of a campus of care that offers an adult day program for non-residents, a ‘Respite Hotel’ to give caregivers in the community time away from caregiving, and an adjacent assisted living facility, The Cedars.
There are 188 beds for permanent residents and 12 respite beds. The recreation department of TRIM has a variety of programs for the residents. The volunteers and Junior volunteers from the Mission Health Care Auxiliary are helping the recreation staff with the activities.
The programs are: bus trip outings, bowling, bingo, baking, lunch club, one-on-one visits and the comfort cart each week.
