Caribou Memorial Veterans Pavilion
In 2002, VAC funded the addition of a large recreation space, the Caribou Sunroom. In 2006, VAC approved renovations to existing dining and communal areas to create two beautiful dining rooms, the Mug-up and Red’s Kitchen, which overlook the atrium and Remembrance Peace Window as well as the addition of family rooms on VP2 and VP3. 2009 saw the opening of the Sir Winston Churchill Wing, an addition to the second floor of the building. This unit is an evidence-based design, created to soothe and provide the best environment possible for veterans with dementia-type illnesses. The addition of the 14 beds in the new wing allowed us to provide all veterans in the pavilion with private or semi-private rooms. Veterans living in Sir Winston Churchill Wing enjoy their meals and much of their days in the Blue Puttee Café, where floor to ceiling glass provides a panoramic view of the east end of the city.
