Designed to meet the Social, Cultural and Dietary needs of members of the multicultural community, PICS Diversity Village (PICS seniors Long Term Care Home) will be located in Surrey. PICS’ proposed PICS Diversity Village will be a 140 bed facility fully equipped to care for the elderly who need personalized attention in a setting which is familiar to them.
Services offered at the care home will include:
- 24 hour emergency response
- Social, leisure & recreational activities
- Assistance with daily living tasks
- Both South Asian and Western meals
Surrey Memorial Hospital currently houses 150 South Asian seniors and this facility when built will not only ease the overcrowding at the hospital but will also save the government at least $1000 per day, per senior.

Age they say is just a number, but it becomes only a mere number when the emotional, physical and mental wellbeing of our seniors is taken care of. Age becomes only a number when our seniors are secure in the knowledge that their needs are being taken care of. PICS is actively fundraising to ensure that our seniors battling aging issues have a cultural sensitive home where they can spend the last phase of their lives in a warm, comfortable environment, a home where they once again start to believe that age is simply a number.
