Introduction to Iroquois Lodge Nursing Home
At Iroquois Lodge Nursing Home we will ensure that all Residents are treated with respect and dignity when accessing health care services. We will also ensure that all our Residents live in a healthy environment that is sensitive and responsive to their unique spiritual and cultural values.

Iroquois Lodge Nursing Home is a long term care home. Our main focus is the care we provide. This is care that enhances the quality of life, dignity and autonomy of our Residents, their families and our staff. It is care which is delivered in consideration of our Residentsí needs. Our team has an interdisciplinary approach, which includes our Residents, their families, our staff and our contracted service providers.

Our ultimate goal is individualized care which emphasizes the holistic approach. This care addresses the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, restorative, recreational, ethno-cultural, spiritual and environmental needs of each Resident. Individual rights and wishes are paramount in providing care within our resources.

How we achieve our vision is as important as the vision itself. Iroquois Lodge Nursing Home will maintain the provision of individualized care by promoting and maintaining our Residentsí way of life within the aboriginal culture, traditions, and spirituality, while providing individualized optimal care.

Our services and programmes are designed to meet the growing and changing needs of our Residents and to provide a rewarding work environment for our staff. We are committed to providing high-quality care and service through a Resident-Centred approach. We will create an environment that empowers each Resident's rights to dignity, self-esteem and independence.
