Long Term Care

Long term Care Defined

Long Term Care services are for adults who can no longer live safely or independently at home because of their complex health care needs. Langley Lodge offers a total of 121 funded spaces and 14 private pay spaces. While most rooms are single occupancy, there are some shared accommodations suites for couples who wish to come into care together.

Langley Lodge is a long term care home where the monthly fee for care is partially funded by Fraser Health and partially paid for by the resident. An assessment by Fraser Health staff is required for admission to a subsidized space. Feel free to call at any time for more information.
