We have experienced nursing staff on duty 24 hours per day to ensure our residents' health and well-being. Our care team includes Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses and Personal Support Workers. Registered staff administer medications and treatments as ordered by physicians, coordinate therapy services, and provide assistance with the activities of daily living, including bathing, dressing, and hygiene.
Our staff is always right around the corner and are assigned based on neighbourhood to promote familiarity with residents, and identified needs. Each room has an emergency "call system" to promote safety and security. Staff provide resident and family counseling and support regarding changes in resident care or health needs.
Lanark Lodge has a Medical Director as well as a number of advisory physicians who visit the home weekly and are in ongoing contact with the registered staff of the home. Resident blood work, testing and prescription medications are coordinated through our nursing staff.
Lanark Lodge provides a wide range of care services, including complex health care and dementia care. One of our four home-areas is dedicated to providing a comfortable and safe environment for those who require specialized care.
Foot care services are provided on site to enhance our residents quality of life, wellness and to prevent future potential problems. A certified foot care nurse provides both basic or advanced foot care after a professional assessment. Professional fees apply.
Lanark Lodge coordinates a variety of on-site therapy services to promote resident wellness and to preserve their independence. Therapy programs such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are provided by our staff or accessed through Home Care.
There are additional "spa" services available on-site, including hair salon (or barber), foot care, massage therapy and health education. Professional fees apply.
