    Current/past resident

    I live at FVC. Moved in Dec 2, 2013. A very friendly place as the name indicates. It is a United Church Homes facility. It has been in existence now for over 35 years. We will soon be going through a ten million dollar face lift. This is a class A facility that provides full service with it's long term care contract.
