About this location

Brock Fahrni has a diverse and multicultural resident population. Our caregivers represent a similar diversity of cultures. 

Our residents live in community areas called neighbourhoods. There are approximately 20-24 residents living in each neighbourhood. We have six neighbourhoods; three neighbourhoods on each of our two floors. All neighbourhoods have an alcove/lounge with a TV and eating area. In the alcoves, residents can enjoy time alone, visit with family or share special times with friends.

Shared rooms

Brock Fahrni has mostly 4-bed rooms, with some private rooms and semi-private rooms.


The home includes an Artworks Studio, a chapel, sunny/shady patio and greenhouse.

A separate quiet room is located on each floor for residents and families to have private visits. Each floor features a large dining room/activity area with an inviting fireplace, kitchenette and large screen TV. Residents can gather in this room to engage in activities. Special events are planned regularly, including family nights, pub nights and birthday celebrations.


You can have visitors any time. There are no set visiting hours for residents. The best time to invite visitors is after 11 a.m., once everyone has woken up and housekeeping is finished.  If your visitors plan to come at night after our doors are locked, please have them call ahead. This way, we can be ready to let them in. We are also happy to work with families who want to be involved in your daily care.
