Little Mountain Residential Care & Housing Society (LMRCHS) is a not for profit care and housing organization. The Society is known and recognized for its ability to evolve its care and grow with the needs of the community.
We began with older adult residential care at Little Mountain Place and Adanac Park Lodge in 1983 and 2000. As housing affordability became an increasing pressing issue for our older adults, we partnered with BC Housing to provide affordable seniors housing at Little Mountain Court. Our evolution continues in 2013 with Adanac Park Lodge taking its expertise in serving individuals with cognitive impairment to a specialized model for younger adults aged 19 – 65 in an enhanced environment to support residents to live to their fullest ability in a person-centred, social model that emphasizes quality of life.
LMRCHS and its team are pioneers who are committed to care of adults with complex needs in our communities.
