Our purpose: We provide Long Term Care in a culturally sensitive setting that respects Latvian heritage.

Kristus Dārzs strives to offer services that meet each resident's physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs in a homelike atmosphere. Our principles: At Kristus Dārzs we are committed to offering the highest quality care, delivered with compassion and respect in safe surroundings, ensuring the individual rights of every resident. The staff, volunteers and board, work together to provide resident and family centered care in a nurturing environment.

 

Our History

Kristus Dārzs Latvian Home is the one of the few facilities outside of Latvia where Latvian seniors can live and enjoy surroundings, activities and food that are inspired by their Latvian culture. The concept for a Latvian Home was first considered in the 1960's, but the actual planning and implementation began 7 years prior to its opening. The land for Kristus Dārzs Latvian Home was donated by Vilma and Laimons Kinstlers. It is thanks to them and to the generosity of Latvians residing in Canada, funds were collected that assisted in allowing the dream for a Latvian Home to come to fruition. The Home received its first residents on December 1, 1985.
