HomeAway Accomodations

Home away

The HomeAway accommodation service was created by the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund to fulfill an unmet need.

The Centre provides 8 short-term accommodations—a home away from home, for British Columbians needing to travel to Vancouver under emergency circumstances for medical treatment due to burn and major trauma injuries, patients in discharge transition or returning for follow up treatment.  The suites include a kitchenette and there is also a communal full service family kitchen for meal preparation.  Guests will find other comforts of home provided such as a family living room, library/study and outdoor decks.

HomeAway Program Goals:

  • Provide a quality home away from home, comfortable environment for guests
  • Enhance the continuum of care patients and families receive post injury
  • Foster a sense of community and sharing among patients and families
  • Create Burn Fund relationships with patients and families
  • Encourage participation with ongoing Burn Fund empowering programs that address life & burn injury coping skills

 

Accommodation for burn and trauma survivors and their families can be one of the most significant contributions we make to help survivors physically and emotionally recover and live a full life following this most traumatic event that changed their lives forever.
