Our parents came to Canada, got jobs, started businesses, saved their money, raised families and gave us whatever they could. As the next generation, we grew up, got jobs, got busy with our families and careers. Our parents aged and they created ‘Rose of Sharon’ - the first and only Korean heritage focused nursing home and retirement residence in 2011. And while our parents tried to do it on their own, it didn’t go exactly as planned.
Did you know that Rose of Sharon is in receivership?
During the same period, however, other communities have significantly grown the number of nursing home beds, including the Chinese community, which has grown by tenfold, while the Korean community is at risk of losing their only 60 beds.
On May 31, 2017, the court authorized the sale of the nursing home by a public sale process to be carried out by the Receiver. Since that time, a special task force has been formed to put forward a feasible bid to acquire the nursing home for the purpose of maintaining the Korean heritage of the home. Again, it appears our parents are trying to take care of things for themselves. Our parents' community has collectively raised over $3.5 million in an effort to purchase the nursing home back.
It's time for us, the 2nd generation, to know what is going on in our community. Join us to find out more.
