Wing Kei is a not-for-profit community-based organization that provides quality cultural-appropriate care to seniors. “Wing Kei” means “glorify God” in Chinese and since 1996, the organization has been known for providing compassionate care to Chinese seniors. Their current long-term care centre was built in 2001, and in 2009 a Supportive Living Facility, the Wing Kei Greenview location was opened.

Since 2012, they have also provided an adult day program, providing cognitive support to seniors and respite to their caregivers. Their approach to care is grounded in the aging-in-place model which recognizes that a continuum of care is required to meet the health needs of the population, seniors in particular.
