Resident’s Council

Our Residents’ Council is a voice for the residents of Copernicus Lodge. The goal is to enhance the services and life at our home and ensure everyone can bring forward suggestions and feedback. All residents of the Copernicus Lodge Long-Term Care Home can be members of Residents’ Council.

As a member, they can:

  • Actively participate in developing choices for activities, food, living arrangements, personal care and other aspects of resident life at Copernicus Lodge;
  • May, as requested, be an advocate in resolving grievances and ensuring resident rights are observed while living at the Home; and
  • Organize fundraising events.

Our Residents’ Council is important because they help Copernicus Lodge’s long-term care teams evaluate and modify their services and programs when needed to better suit residents’ needs.

Family Council provides a forum for family members and friends of Copernicus Lodge’s Long-Term Care residents to provide support, share experiences and seek solutions to common concerns.

The Family Council also identifies areas for improvement and recommends strategies to the advance care and services at Copernicus Lodge.
