At Gemstone we live fully according to our values. We are home to 130 residents, providing person-centred care where we ensure dignity and choice are fundamental in everything we do. The people that work at Gemstone love their job!
We are a comfortable, modern Long Term Care Home that opened in June 2013. Our home is surrounded by beautiful gardens and has lovely views of the Thompson River. There are shops and services nearby and close connections to the Brocklehurst community on the North Shore of Kamloops. We focus on Quality of Life and embrace best practices in Person and Family-centered Care.
We offer community-style living with 2 houses per neighbourhood grouping. Each house has 15 bedrooms with its own dining area and TV lounge, as well as a bathing spa and access to the outdoors. There are also common amenities including a bistro-events room, a hair salon, a family quiet lounge and a central courtyard to enjoy the gardens with views of the River. We have parking available and offer bike racks by the front entrance.
All 130 bedrooms are fully private with 126 rooms having ensuite washrooms and 4 with shared washrooms. The furniture provided includes an electric bed, wardrobe, dresser, night table and room chair. This is your home and we encourage you to personalize it with pictures, books, and ornaments. There are TV and telephone hook ups in each room, should you decide to purchase those services.
We are a licensed care home operating under the Community Care and Assisted Living Act. Safety is a priority and our quality is closely reviewed. Gemstone works with Interior Health as a contracted Long Term Care Provider and is part of BC’s Funded Healthcare System.
