Wing Kei is a not-for-profit community-based organization that provides quality cultural-appropriate care to the seniors. “Wing Kei” means “glorify God” in Chinese. We are known for providing compassionate and loving care in a team-oriented environment.
Our approach to care is grounded in the aging-in-place model which recognizes that a continuum of care is required to meet the health needs o...f the population, seniors in particular. Our model emphasizes the value of keeping seniors as independent as possible – through their ability to be mobile, make their own decisions whenever appropriate and interact with their loved ones regularly. We support seniors to be as healthy as they can. We work as a team – caregivers, residents, families, support staff, physicians, health care professionals and volunteers – to respond to concerns through creativity and resourcefulness.
