Our Story

The story of the Weinberg Residence
What started as a mere dream has evolved into a cornerstone of Vancouver’s Jewish community; a place where you can live the life you value, enjoy all the comforts of home and receive the care you desire.

Back in 1945, 14 friends known as the Hebrew Men’s Cultural Club shared a vision to create a home for Jewish seniors in Vancouver. That home, initially built to accommodate 13 residents, was established in 1946. Over time, that modest facility grew, changed locations and expanded its services, eventually becoming the Louis Brier Home and Hospital, which has progressed in step with Vancouver’s Jewish community for more than 60 years.

The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg (of Baltimore) Residence, opened in 2003, is the most recent evolution of that original dream. Adjacent to the Louis Brier Home & Hospital, the Weinberg Residence offers 40 Assisted Living suites and 20 Multi-Level Care rooms. The Weinberg Residence honours you with a comfortable space and a warm, caring community that respects the life you choose and the values you cherish.

But it doesn’t end here. All of us at the Weinberg Residence are committed to continually growing with the needs of the community. We strive to be leaders in the provision of care to the Jewish elderly through excellence in service, clinical practice, education and community outreach.
