Welcome to the Weinberg Residence

You’ve probably heard the story. It started as a dream in 1945. Fourteen friends, who wanted to care for the elderly, provided seed money to fund a home for Jewish seniors in Vancouver.

For over 60 years, the Louis Brier Home and Hospital has flourished and grown to meet the demands in our community. The Home has fulfilled the original dream—to honour and bless hundreds of seniors with a caring and comfortable place to live.

The tradition continues with the newest expansion – the Weinberg Residence. There are forty Assisted Living suites and 20 Multi-Level Care rooms in this lovely residence.

As part of the Dr. Irving and Phyliss Snider Campus for Jewish Seniors, the Residence is the only place of its kind west of Winnipeg where one can live in a Jewish setting.

The Residence
Picture your new home. What would it look like? Perhaps a place filled with laughter when your family comes to visit. Maybe it’s a haven where you can relax and read a novel. Or a home where you observe the Jewish customs and festivals you’ve come to treasure.

You have all that at the Weinberg Residence, a vibrant place where you can live with dignity, tradition and independence, all within a Jewish-centred community.

Whether you choose to still live in an assisted living suite or desire the more complete service available in our multi-level care wing, you can celebrate the life you value. Savour authentic foods like blintzes, borscht or gefilte fish, and observe Jewish holidays in your own way.

The Residence provides:
• Kosher meals three times a day
• A private dining room for special occasions
• An in-house library
• A fireside lounge where you can visit with friends and family
• Membership to the Chava and Abrasha Wosk Synagogue
• Daily Minyan and weekly Shabbat services
• Holiday observances--from Rosh Hashanah to Pesach
• Celebrations of Jewish festivals
• Events at the nearby Jewish Community Centre
