JESKEN is a SENĆOŦEN term for Golden Eagle. The eagle represents the most visible reminder of our connection to the natural and supernatural worlds. AERIE is the nest of a bird, built on a high place such as a cliff or perch.
Jesken Aerie is a partnership between the District of Langford, BC Housing and Vancouver Island Health Authority through the Independent Living BC Program that provides housing for Elders/Seniors. The objective of this program is to provide affordable housing and services to support Elders/Seniors and people with disabilities maintain the independence they desire.
The residents are seniors and Elders, as well as adults with disabilities who are able to direct their own care and whose health will be better managed by support and care within the community rather than within a residential care setting. These services and accommodations will be made affordable to lower income Residents through financial assistance from BC Housing and the Vancouver Island Health Authority.
Jesken Aerie includes 60 units of Elders/seniors housing along with common/communal space for recreation, meals and personal care services. The site is just minutes by foot from all major amenities (doctors, groceries, restaurants, post office, etc).

Pronounced (Ts-ee-tsu-wa-tul Lay-lum) Hul’qumi’num for Home for Helping Each Other. Independance throughout our life journey likely will require additional support as we age, and these supports will extend our independence in a healthy and safe way. Ts’i’ts’uwatul’ Lelum is designed with these life changes and corresponding supports in mind. We provide culturally responsible support to Elders with on-site professionals and Aboriginal culturally trained and qualified staff who provide many services and personal care support. Our property features 50 self-contained apartment styled units for Elders and persons with disabilities.
