Experience a continuum of care at Billings Lodge
Billings Lodge is a retirement home in Ottawa and we pride ourselves on our ability to create an environment that provides for the physical, emotional, and social needs of seniors—particularly those who have dementia. At Billings Lodge, we design our individual plans with a continuum of care in mind. That means that we view health as not simply a matter of diagnoses and treatments, but a complete lifestyle in which every aspect of one’s well being is addressed at whatever stage of life you’ve reached. We not only try to provide for seniors’ health, but also their emotional needs.
A healthy and hygienic environment
Good hygiene practices are a fundamental aspect of one’s health and every seniors’ home in Ottawa should take these issues seriously. With our complete room cleaning, daily bed making, and garbage disposal services, we do everything we can to keep living areas spotless. For seniors who have regular or rapidly changing health concerns, we also have expert nurses available at any time, day or night, as well as a visiting doctor that can oversee personalized care plans for all our residents. If there are any health issues preventing you from keeping track of or regularly taking your medication, we can help with that too.
A full schedule of activities for the mind and body
Our residents’ physical health is just one of the several components that go into well being. We also believe that daily social interaction and mental stimulation contribute to overall health. That’s why we plan a variety of social, educational and entertaining activities for our residents and their families to enjoy, including:
• Several lounges for relaxation
• A public piano
• Regular shopping trips
• A hairdresser on premises for both men and women
• Church services (Anglican, United, and Roman Catholic)
• Weekly movies
• Library service
• A dedicated lodge bus for specially arranged outings
