A welcoming garden, smiling support team and cookies baking in the oven are all part of the inviting picture of Hirst House in Parksville.
Hirst House provides 6 assisted living/crisis stabilization beds to clients from Oceanside and surrounding communities – people who may have experienced a mental health or substance use crisis and need a place to recover and be cared for. Supported by a caring in-house team, the Oceanside Integrated Community Primary Care Team assesses and refers clients to Hirst House and provides clinical support and case management.
Hirst House is staffed 24/7 to ensure the safety and security of each person. Residents have their own private room and enjoy home cooked meals, empathic support, and a secure drug-free environment. Case managers from Oceanside Health Centre ensure that necessary clinical resources are made available to each resident.
