Congratulations to our staff at PICS who have completed 10 years of service at our Assisted Living facility. PICS Assisted Living facility scored the highest rate of satisfaction in a survey conducted by Fraser Health Region recently and the credit certainly goes to our excellent staff.
Community media in Lower Mainland, especially South Asian media has been extremely helpful in disseminating important information about PICS and it's programs. Whether it's our settlement, employment senior or programs for women and youth the media has always helped us in getting the word out.
