Citation for BC Aboriginal Business Awards Achiever


Community-Owned Business of the Year


Pine Acres Home
Westbank


recipient
JoAnne and Larry Derrickson, Pine Acres Home

The Westbank First Nation's Pine Acres Home was established 25 years ago to meet a significant need for elders of both the Westbank First Nation and other Aboriginal groups across the country. It is the first Aboriginal care home in the country and, in 2007, it was awarded full accreditation status for excellence in health care standards. It has grown from a 20 bed facility to a 63 bed facility and is known for its respect for its people, its tremendous quality of care, its outstanding employee relations and its dedication to health for older adults in our country. Pine Acres is a model of care for all health organizations and its nominators have stated that should they need long-term care, Pine Acres is where they want to reside.
