Gilmore Lodge Redevelopment
All Niagara Region projects
About the project
Gilmore Lodge long-term care home is being redeveloped on a 4.87-hectare lot at 200 Garrison Rd. in Fort Erie.
The new Gilmore Lodge redevelopment project will be a three-storey, non-combustible structure that includes 160 long-term care home beds and a Seniors Community Hub.
The new Gilmore Lodge Long-Term Care Home will have a cozy, home-like feeling. Each resident home area is subdivided into two 16-bed wings, featuring shorter hallways with sitting areas located at the end of each corridor. The design includes features that improve infection control measures and enhances the resident and user experience.
The new Gilmore Lodge long-term care home and Seniors Community Hub is being developed to facilitate the integration of services for residents, seniors, their families and the community. The Seniors Community Hub will be home to our Community Services Adult Day Programs, Healthy Safe and Strong Falls Prevention Exercise Programs, Seniors Outreach Programs, Respite Companion Support Programs and community partner space.
The basement level consists of the main commercial kitchen and laundry, shipping and receiving, staff room, locker rooms, facilities maintenance offices and storage areas.
The long-term care home ground floor includes a single, 32-bed resident home area, celebration boardroom, administration offices, volunteer area, café and store, chapel, library, great room, café seating, rehab gym, technology room and accessible outdoor spaces.
The Seniors Community Hub features an Adult Day Program area, with small and large programming areas, consultation room, exercise room, washrooms and shower facilities, program kitchen and dining, office and meeting spaces, a staff lounge area, staff fitness, café seating, conference room and courtyard. The café and hair salon spaces were designed to offer services to both long-term care residents and seniors from the surrounding community.
The project will be pursuing WELL Silver certification under the WELL Building Standard. The WELL Building Standard supports the health and well-being of residents and staff who will be living and working in the new facilities, together with guests, families and volunteers who visit and use the amenities. The WELL Building Standard is premised on a holistic approach and is focused on enhancing people's health and well-being through the built environment.
We will provide expected building completion and resident move-in dates once determined with the construction teams.
