The Manor was originally built in 1971 with 48 beds as an outreach program of Zion Lutheran Church. The goal was to provide a range of accommodation and care services based upon Christian values and principles. The Lutheran Senior Citizens’ Housing Society is a registered charitable organization that was created to oversee the management of the facility. This Society is still in place and has now been dedicated to providing care to seniors for over 40 years. Board Directors’ generously volunteer their time to ensure that the Manor serves our elders in the best way possible.
In 1980, the Manor was expanded to add 42 intermediate care beds, bringing the total to 90 government-funded beds. Thirty-two of the original rooms were demolished in 1988 to make room for a 68 bed multi-level care addition that was completed during the summer of 1999.
The Society has redeveloped two separate buildings over the last five years to provide larger private suites for members of the community. Demand has been high for the excellent care provided at the Manor. Zion Park Manor has a contract with Fraser Health Authority to provide care for 70 elders in funded beds. The Manor also serves 29 elders who pay for their care and accommodations privately.
