In response to COVID-19, the only people permitted to enter long-term care homes are essential visitors (end of life) and essential caregivers (registered and trained). Upon arrival, required screening will determine if you may proceed with your visit. Stay up to date on changes to City services and help keep all residents safe.

Donate to residents at Lakeshore Lodge. Your support will purchase technology (i.e. tablets) to enable communication, virtual visits and social engagement, as well as other initiatives, which enhance the quality of life for long-term care residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lakeshore Lodge provides individualized care to each of its 150 residents within a safe and friendly environment. Guided by the CARE values – Compassion | Accountability | Respect | Excellence, we are committed to improving quality of life and support for healthy aging.
