The facility was runned down, the shared spaces such as lounge, activity room, library were small, closed in spaces. Resident informed that the quality of the meals has dropped under new ownership one year ago. The shared accommodation option is not a viable option for anyone in my opinion.
Mums suite in her Lodge
The lodge is a little tired and needs some tlc. Staff for the most part exceptional. The elevator was broken for 3 weeks hopefully that will not happen again. Meals are plentiful but lack fresh vegetables. Maybe a veggie meal with legumes as a protein should be considered. Mum is safe and that is comforting. Everyone is really helpful and it feels like a big family. I would recommend this assisted living home it is a really nice environment.
Blackburn Lodge offers comfortable self-contained suites whose sizes and features are as varied as our residents’ tastes and budgets. You can change the decor to express your individual taste by bringing your favourite pieces of furniture, or by adding some wallpaper or a treasured painting. It’s your choice.
Your suite is your home — or rather a part of your home, because the common areas of the building are never off-limits to residents. Your guests are welcome in your home at any time — even to stay overnight if you choose. And maintaining privacy is as simple as closing your door.
Independence is encouraged through our selection of service options. You choose a plan that gives you the best combination of independent living and the support or pampering you want.
