Staff with Resident


“I want to take this opportunity to personally welcome you to Deer Lodge Centre and especially on behalf of the Resident and Family Council.

You are encouraged to attend the regularly scheduled unit based council meeting. Here we share information and discuss issues and lobby changes to improve resident’s quality of care here at Deer lodge Centre. Every suggestion is discussed and referred to the appropriate department for follow-up. Concerns of residents are dealt with by the Care Manager or directed to the Deer Lodge Centre Resident and Family Council membership.

In the past years we have been involved in asking government for funds to improve and install new bathtubs for the tower section of the Centre. These tubs now have been installed and enhanced quality of care and privacy for our residents. Also, council has been instrumental in improving laundry services for the residents, fixing walkways and getting more plants to beautify residents’ living areas, just to mention a few.

No suggestion or concern is ever thought of as unimportant. You and your family are always welcome at the unit based meetings. Unit based council meetings have an open door policy.

See you at the meetings.”
