Welcome to Deer Lodge Centre!
Greetings from the DLC Chief Operating Officer:
On behalf of the staff and volunteers, I want to welcome you to Deer Lodge Centre.
The Centre’s role is in making lives better and I believe we achieve this through hard work, and a wide range of services available to you. Along with 24 hour nursing care, the Centre has rehabilitation and social activities available depending upon your needs, abilities and interests.
The staff welcomes your involvement in planning your care, and participation by your family. Care conferences, social activities, and Resident and Family Council are examples of opportunities for both you and your family to be involved in decision-making regarding Centre activities. The Resident Handbook gives you a great deal of information about the Centre. I also encourage you to ask questions of the staff when you are uncertain.
I hope we are able to meet your expectations of high quality care during your time at the Centre. Again, welcome to Deer Lodge Centre.
Kevin A. Scott
Chief Operating Officer
Greetings from the DLC Resident and Family Council:
I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Deer Lodge Centre and especially on behalf of the Resident and Family Council.
As residents and family members, we meet every month to share information and discuss issues and lobby for changes to improve residents’ quality of care here. Every suggestion is discussed and referred to the appropriate department for follow up. Please note that there is a suggestion box that is checked regularly. It is located on Main Street by the Social Work Department (office door).
We would like to highlight two visitation areas. The new Indoor Visitation Centre is for general visitors. Please visit our website at https://deerlodge.mb.ca/visiting-at-deer-lodge-centre/ for more information and to book your visit.
We have a beautiful visiting area located on the second floor (across from Chad’s Bar) for designated visitors and residents. Resident and Family Council has been involved in creating this inviting space. The area boasts a large and colorful fish tank, natural light, and comfortable lounge furniture has been ordered.
No suggestion or concern is ever thought of as unimportant. You matter at Deer Lodge Centre. You and your family are always welcome at our meetings. We have an open-door policy. Your comments and concerns are appreciated.
See you at the meetings!
Ray Ricard, Council Coordinator
Resident and Family Council
