A Special Message
Dear Family and Friends,
We may be connecting from a distance at the moment, but our Lodge family is staying strong and safe. During this difficult time, we want to reach out and assure you that as always, the health of our residents and staff continues to be our first priority. We have implemented all the required, enhanced precautions for the care of our residents and will continue to follow the guidelines and orders that we receive from our Public Health Officer and Government Authorities.
Though we are currently unable to have you visit us and your loved ones, please know that our staff, recreation, and executive teams are providing safe, small group programs while ensuring social distancing, and one-to-one visits that allow us all to experience Meaningful Days at The Lodge. We appreciate the dedication and devotion of all our employees, now more than ever.
We understand that these are stressful times. If you should have any questions or concerns, please leave your contact information with our reception and we will respond as quickly as possible.
In the coming weeks, we look forward to sharing photos of our activities and arranging video calls for our residents to connect with their loved ones. So, while our doors may be temporarily closed, our hearts are still open.
Thinking of you all,

Welcome to Our Family
Our Care Philosophy
The care providers at South Granville Park Lodge recognize the uniqueness of each resident, support the resident’s strengths and challenges, and provide care that promotes dignity, irrespective of cognitive and physical ability.
At South Granville Park Lodge, our care staff is well informed, reliable and team-oriented. We maintain a staff to resident ratio which exceeds licensing requirements, ranking us among the highest in quality of care in our industry.
Registered Nurses are on duty 24 hours a day. Nurses assess, plan, implement and evaluate the needs of each resident, and make care revisions in consultation with our Director of Care and the resident’s family physician. The nurses work closely with the resident’s physician, dietitian, podiatrist, physiotherapist, laboratory technicians, therapeutic recreation staff, mental health team consultants and all in-house health care providers, to maximize the resident’s overall well-being.
Residents receive gracious individual attention by well qualified personal care aides in all aspects of their personal hygiene, dressing and food requirements.
Our Extended Family
Our residents have family members and friends who care deeply about them. At South Granville Park Lodge, we welcome these important people as our care advocates and see them as part of our extended family and essential to our care philosophy of Meaningful Days.
The important role of the care advocate is to support the resident, especially through the transition process by providing a sense of comfort, familiarity and safety. The care advocate is also a link between the past, as a rich source of history and information about the resident, and the present. By sharing this link, both care advocates and care providers contribute to building and strengthening our family culture.
Through the open door policy at South Granville Park Lodge, we honour requests and feedback from our advocates through care conferences and service appraisals in order to effect change and encourage a relationship of trust and shared responsibility. Our staff endeavours to inspire and educate our care advocates by providing tools and resources which empower and support. Many opportunities for family gatherings are also created which allow us to celebrate milestones, mark holidays and spend quality time together.
