Welcome home!

Glen Stor Dun Lodge is a non-profit municipal home for the aged, owned and operated by the City of Cornwall.

The Lodge opened in 1912 and has been located at its current site on the picturesque shores of the St. Lawrence River since 1952. In 1994 a completely new facility was constructed with considerable input from residents, clients, families, staff, volunteers and management.

Glen Stor Dun Lodge provides support to citizens of the City of Cornwall and the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry in a smoke-free environment. We welcome you to learn more about our Lodge and its services by clicking on the links below.

 About Glen Stor Dun Lodge

This 132-bed non-profit facility offers long-term care and outreach services to the citizens of our community. The Lodge building is a four-story custom-designed structure.

The ground floor consists of social amenities and community areas. The three upper floors are resident areas, with 108 private rooms, two of which are short-stay rooms, 12 semi-private rooms with two beds each, resident galleries, dining rooms, activity rooms and personal care areas.

The special care unit houses 44 residents, divided into male and female areas. A special care garden, with a raised vegetable bed for a gardening program, is available for special care residents.

Outdoor resident areas include a verandah and gazebo, which residents and families enjoy tremendously in the summer months. 

 Departments and Services

Glen Stor Dun Lodge, an accredited long-term care facility, provides a full range of services, exceeding the minimum standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Long-Term Care. These services include dietary, housekeeping, laundry and maintenance, medical/nursing/physiotherapy services, recreation, religious and spiritual, and volunteer. Other services enhance resident quality of life: banking, hairdressing, postal and newsletter.

The majority of Lodge staff members are permanently assigned to the same unit to enhance their relationship with residents and provide greater continuity of care.

 Applications and Fees

Long-term care centres, also known as nursing homes and homes for the aged, are available for people who are not able to live independently or in their own homes, and who require a 24-hour nursing service to be available to meet their nursing and personal care needs.

The purpose of Volunteer Services is to compliment essential services and contribute to total resident care.

We believe in providing a flexible and viable program that incorporates a variety of services for our residents. We work to promote community awareness of the elderly and their needs. We strive to foster the personal growth and satisfaction of our volunteers.

Volunteers contribute in many ways, from assisting with activities for residents at the Lodge, to serving as drivers in delivering meals for our community Meals on Wheels  program.

 Donating to Glen Stor Dun Lodge

We are grateful to all who are gracious enough to consider donating funds to the Lodge. We have set up two options for you:

A.  The Memorial Fund

End-of-life does not mean end-of-living. It is an intense time for reflection, for loving, for giving. It is a time to celebrate life. It is a time for spiritual growth.

We are committed to ensuring that Residents will be supported during this time. As care needs increase, we will endeavour to do the following;

  • exercise the best practices in pain and symptom management
  • provide comfort measures
  • give complementary and/or therapeutic interventions
  • volunteer companionship
  • support family and loved ones
  • offer spiritual counselling
  • supplement Palliative Care sitter service

Our commitment is to ensure that the experience of dying is as full as the experience of living and that none of our Residents will go through this time alone. This fund is managed and distributed through Resident Council.

 

B.  The Glen Stor Dun Lodge Charitable Trust Fund (the Fund)

Mission
The Glen Stor Dun Lodge Charitable Trust Fund raises monies to meet the Resident’s need for independence, choice, dignity and privacy at each stage of their life at the Lodge.

 

Glen Stor Dun Lodge Charitable Trust Fund Management
It is the responsibility of the Committee of Management to ensure that the mission and philosophy is upheld by reviewing all requests for funds that are presented by the “Glen Stor Dun Lodge Foundation Committee”.
