Life House Care Homes Society (Lifehouse)

we serve these populations

    Aging in Canada should not be comparable to life in prison.

    Right now our fragile citizens are being forced into institutionalized environments where they must rapidly adapt to an often harsh and ridged routine deprived of privacy and liberty. Housed with over a hundred people and surrounded by staff who are stressed out, overworked and underpaid – you can imagine that the experience is stressful, unpleasant and very overwhelming.

    Life House Care Homes Society is on a misson to change the way people age by bringing care into the community through our Healing Homes, Community Care and Neighbourhood Nurse programs. We are dedicated to providing freedom, independence and compassionate quality care, at a price you can afford.Our revolutionary care model combines holistic medical care and universal design to create a unique healing environment. Our Care Homes are a sanctuary you can call home while you require 24/7 care. If your care requirements are less, you have the option to schedule care in your own home.

    There are two key aspects of care – people and environment.  All of us are shaped and transformed by the environment we live in and are naturally influenced by the people around us.  A home setting provides an adaptable environment which promotes individualized care.  the small-scale setting allows our specialized care team the opportunity to adopt the care to our members unique  needs. Our care is built on 8 pillars;  Compassion Care, Nutrition, Activities, Education, Arts,  Culture, Socialization, and Spiritual Support. Each pillar of care is adapted to incorporate the Care theme.

    All of our members have access to affordable Health Care Services and benefit from ongoing educational opportunities we provide.

    Care Homes 

    Each home has a specific care objective or “Care Theme”.  Environment plays a huge role in providing quality care. Every aspect of the home is specially designed to ensure the function of the home allows for the care objectives to be met.  All of our homes feature a unique ambience and are designed around a specific care objective. With our Care Themes, our care model allows for “one of a kind” personalized care. Applicants have the ability to choose which Care Theme suits them best including memory care.

    Memory Care

    Our Memory Care Homes feature an enhanced care setting that accommodates as much independence as possible. Our specialized interior design provides a safe environment that our members can feel comfortable in. The small care setting allows for individualized care, and one on one attention. Reminders are placed throughout the home to allow members the chance to use their memory before being assisted. Seminars, and Workshops are tailored to help increase memory and help to decrease the symptoms of dementia.

    Respite and Overnight Care

    Our Overnight Respite Care provides caregivers a temporary rest from caregiving, while the person with Alzheimer’s continues to receive care in a safe environment. With overnight care, you are able to take an extended break or vacation while your loved one can experience our healing home, and benefit from all of the healing amenities. Overnight relief can help to rejuvenate your mind and body by giving you an extended break, while providing you with practical support needed in order to make time for yourself.

    Registered Day Programs 

    Our registered day programs offer full time caregivers a much deserved break. Our Day Programs offer your loved one an opportunity to be social and participate in activities such as Music & Art Therapy, Movement Classes, Behavioural Therapy Activities and more. In our experience, scheduled programs help to reduce the symptoms of wandering, incontinence, hallucinations, sexually inappropriate behavior or speech difficulties. Our Day Programs include nutritious snacks and meals while attendees enjoy specialized activities.
