Langley Lodge has a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and a Rehabilitation Assistant on staff. The aim of the Physiotherapy Department is to assist the resident in achieving his/her full potential in mobility and functional skills and maintaining independence and quality of life.
The goal of the dietary department is to prepare and serve nutritious, tasty and appetizing meals for residents in a pleasant and satisfying manner. Dietary services are directed by a Registered Dietitian and coordinated and supervised by a Food Services Management professional. Food preparation and service is provided by experienced, professionally trained Cooks as well as Foodsafe-certified Dietary Aides. We have a five-week rotating menu and additional nourishments in the afternoon and evening. Visitors are welcome to join their resident family member for meals or tea breaks for a nominal cost. Detailed information is available in the Resident Handbook.
Medical Services are lead by our Medical Director, and governed by provincial directives for long-term care. These provincial guidelines address at a minimum, medical services quality, frequency of visits and goals of care. Our Medical Director provides liaison between Langley Lodge and community physicians. Many residents will continue to have their own physician, and for those who require a physician, the Medical Director’s role is to engage a primary physician in those instances
Dental health is part of the total resident care. Langley Lodge delivers dental care through a mobile dentistry provider, ensuring that all residents have access to a Dentist, and dental care is delivered on site. Dental care fees are determined by the provider according to provincial guidelines, and residents are billed directly by the Dentist.
Our residence is bright, clean and well maintained by daily housekeeping and maintenance personnel. Langley Lodge was completely renovated in 2008-11, and our facility is in excellent condition. To maintain this condition, a capital replacement program is in place to ensure our equipment and structures receive routine servicing and replacement according to professional estimates. Personal laundry services are provided daily for linens, towels and personal clothing (suitable for laundry). We have a comprehensive building security program, HVAC systems, ensuring a secure and comfortable living space for residents and work place for staff.
