I am writing to express my gratitude and appreciation on behalf of my family and myself. My mother is 96, going on 97, and I am under no illusions that she has much time left on this earth. Our family would like for her final years to be spent as comfortably and peacefully as possible. After much searching, we decided to entrust our mother to Langara based on the high quality facility, staff, and reputation, and to this day, we have not been disappointed. ”
