Lanark Lodge has an extensive amount of experience working with older adults, in particular those with dementia. Staff are continuously supported to enhance their knowledge and skills to support residents living at Lanark Lodge. We support an inter-disciplinary approach to care and include families as an essential component of the resident’s care team.
Our home has been decorated to feel “home-like” with wide hallways, bright, spacious rooms, with common indoor and outdoor spaces for resident gatherings. Lanark Lodge strives to maintain a person centered approach and offers Montessori Methods for Dementia™, an innovative method for working with older adults living with cognitive and/or physical impairments. Lanark Lodge has four residential neighborhoods where residents live.
Lanark Lodge provides 24-hour nursing and personal care services, accommodation, meals, as well as a variety of social and recreational activities. We strive to maintain a resident’s physical abilities which creates a sense of personal well being, and independence. In addition, we support the resident’s spiritual care needs and continued connection with their community through our volunteer networks.
We are a regulated health care service provider governed by the Long-Term Care Homes Act (2007) and its supporting Regulations. Lanark Lodge is fully accredited by Accreditation Canada, and is an active member of the Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors.
