Friends of The Village Society


One of the most critical components of any community is the connections made both inside the community and outside. Communities are made stronger when people work together to share knowledge, compassion and support for those who need it. The Friends of The Village Society was created to do just that.

As a “Friend”, members and donors support the residents of The Village. They also support the ongoing education, outreach and engagement of the wider community as advocates for change in the way we care for those living with dementia.

The Village model is all about being part of the wider community, as a member of The Friends of The Village Society you are part of the change we all seek for those family, friends and people living with dementia.

Please read a Welcome Letter from Elroy Jespersen, Project Leader and Director, Friends of the Village Society.


Our Mission

To support those living with dementia at The Village Langley and be an advocate for change in the wider community.

We do this by:

  • Providing opportunities for FRIENDS to connect with Villagers through mutually beneficial social activities, programs and events.
  • Raising awareness and advocating for change in the way we support those living with dementia.
  • Raising funds and provide resources that enhance the physical environment and program opportunities within The Village and the wider community.
  • Recruiting and educating “Friends” to volunteer and support Villagers and provide them with opportunities to make meaningful contributions within The Village and in the wider community.
  • Providing dementia caregiver education and outreach to the wider community on The Village model and be an advocate for change.
