This has been my first year as President of the Langley Care Society. I must first tip my hat to outgoing President Terry Metcalfe who gave exemplary service to the Lodge for many years, allowing me time to learn the details as Vice President.
This year Langley Lodge was successful in re-certification with Exemplary Standing in the Accreditation Canada review for 2016 through 2020. This is a real credit to everyone who contributes to the operations of the Langley Lodge residential care home. From the strong leadership of Debra Hauptman, CEO, and our senior staff, the nurses, other professional staff and support teams to the leadership of the volunteer Board of Directors and the Auxiliary, everyone performed as one cohesive unit intent on improving the quality of life for our residents. Our exemplary standing places our organization at the highest ranking for a care home operator in Langley. Thank you to everyone for making this possible.
As President I am proud to state that the Langley Lodge is on strong financial ground and is well positioned to continue to operate effectively in the future. We are looking ahead to contingencies and upgrades that may be needed, and planning to effectively manage such matters as they arise.
We are continuing to work with Fraser Health Authority to meet their projections for more residential care spaces in Langley in the next 4 years. We have a supply of private pay spaces that could become fully subsidized beds for our community. The prospect for this development in the future is looking strong. You can never know what tomorrow may bring, but Langley Lodge is well prepared to continue its mission to provide exemplary care services for the elderly in our community.
