Currently in construction, the new Gilmore Lodge and Seniors’ Wellness Centre will provide a welcoming home for residents, clients and the community and a safe and comfortable work environment for staff. The new 160 bed home features small home-like households of 16 residents, cohesive resident home areas, destination common spaces including a library, chapel, cafe/store, and accessible outdoor courtyards.
Gilmore Lodge will be the new home for Niagara Region’s Convalescent Care Program. This program provides quality care to individuals who need time and support to recover from a hospital stay before returning home.
The Gilmore Lodge Seniors’ Wellness Centre features an Adult Day Program area that includes an exercise room, cafe seating, dining, program kitchen and courtyard access. An EarlyON Centre will be incorporated into the community hub, providing a multi-generational experience. Physio-therapy will also be offered.
Demonstrating leadership, the Niagara Region is pursuing WELL Building Standard certification at the Silver level for this project delivering spaces that enhance human health and well-being.
