Fraserside’s Fraserdale facility supports adults with mental health challenges through two programs: Long Stay and Short Stay. The two programs are funded by Fraser Health and differ in prescribed services and admission criteria.

Fraserdale Long Stay Program

The Fraserdale Long Stay Program is a registered Assisted Living program for seven adults with mental health challenges to maintain an optimal level of independence for up to 18 months.

The program delivers two personal assistance services (referred to as prescribed services): medication services and psychosocial supports. In addition, the program provides a supportive home environment to help residents:

  • Learn about and better manage their mental health conditions
  • Develop life skills that enable them to maintain housing
  • Enhance their communication and interpersonal skills
  • Develop healthy relationships

Staff supports are available to residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
