In late 2018, the highest possible designation through Accreditation Canada was Awarded to the Grandview Lodge, Haldimand County’s long-term care home. Grandview Lodge was recognized for its quality care and received accreditation with exemplary standing.
Accreditation Canada came to the home, reviewed policies and procedures, interviewed residents and staff and determined that Grandview Lodge is a “leading example of quality long-term care.” Grandview Lodge successfully demonstrated excellence in quality improvement and surpassed all standards for a long-term care home.
Quality of life is a top priority for Grandview residents and staff. Accreditors praised the home for its philosophy of care and exceptional service delivery. Accreditors were impressed with the home’s ability to meet the needs of a diverse population and provide meaningful programs to ensure residents receive comfort, compassion and care.
“We are thrilled with the outcome of the accreditation process,” noted Jennifer Jacob, Administrator at Grandview Lodge. “Being recognized as a leader in the delivery of long-term care is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire staff body,” she continued.
Jacob noted that new programs are always being developed to enhance residents’ lives and build community within the 128-bed home. In 2018, Grandview Lodge debuted a brand-new Games Room for residents and their families with a shuffleboard table, board games and mini-bar (run by staff every Tuesday).
