PHILOSOPHY  

Simply put, the purpose of The Village Langley, and all those who work here, is to enable the well-being of those we serve.

We strive to be a place where, through the dedicated service of our team members, each Resident has an enriched living experience and lives their own best life, each-and-every day.

The role of a Village team member is to facilitate an enriched living experience for each Villager by fostering and nurturing relationships; enabling Villagers to control and manage their day; enabling feelings of safety, security &

connectedness to people and things that matter to each person; establishing trusting relationships with families; enabling learning of new things, and; making meaningful contributions within The Village and surrounding communities. Our success is largely determined by the amount of joy, love and laughter experienced by each of those we serve – Villagers, staff, volunteers and local community.
