Crossreach Project of Vancouver
Crossreach is a non-profit society, located in Vancouver, British Columbia, that provides services to seniors.
Crossreach operates an adult day centre which provides a safe setting, social interaction and other programs for seniors to be able to continue living at home and who would otherwise be deprived of contact with others. Crossreach also provides respite for caregivers. We are committed to supporting the independent living of seniors and improving their lifestyle, so that seniors can age in place for as long as they are able to.
We are located at 3348 West Broadway, in our own building, which was specifically designed for adults. We provide a bright, spacious and wheelchair accessible premises. We have a commercial kitchen in which our professional chef prepares healthy, nutritionally-balanced snacks and meals. Membership in Crossreach is available for an annual fee of $25. Senior members who are clients of Crossreach pay an annual fee of $10.
