Since 1972, Langley Care Foundation's mission is to raise funds for the elderly in Langley. In fundraising projects, large and small, the people who raise money for the Langley Lodge do it with heart. The ideas generated by dedicated volunteers and supported by Director of Fundraising, Patrick Matiowski range from butterfly releases to ritzy galas. Whether it's a staff recycling project or an innovative golf event, these volunteers show their love for what the Langley Lodge does for people in their twilight years.
Langley Care Foundation is an incorporated non-profit society and registered charity. Net income is re-invested into equipment and furnishings and/or programs and services for Langley Lodge.

Horticultural Therapy (HT) is a formal practice that uses plants, horticultural activities and the garden landscape to promote well-being for its participants. HT is accepted as a beneficial and effective therapeutic modality within a broad range of rehabilitative, vocational and community settings. In addition, HT helps improve cognitive abilities, task initiative, language skills and socialization.
Music Therapy at Langley Lodge engages people with music. Research suggests that it heals the body and the mind. Despite impaired memory capacity, individuals with dementia respond positively to the music of their youth. People with disabilities also have shown improved mobility by walking to the beat of a song. Music elevates serotonin and melatonin levels which helps residents maintain a positive demeanor.
Our resident’s spiritual needs and preferences are seen as integral to the care and healing process. This important level of care allows us to make decisions that may involve an ethical or spiritual component. Furthermore, our weekly pastoral care sessions with our pastor Tony allow for a non-denomination forum that the devout can experience their faith and ask any questions they may have.
Art Therapy uses the creative process of art-making to improve and enhance the physical, mental and emotional well-being of individuals of all ages. It is based on the belief that the creative process involved in artistic self-expression helps people to resolve conflicts and problems, develop interpersonal skills, manage behaviour, reduce stress, increase self-esteem and self-awareness, and achieve insight.
