Families of Fairview Lodge residents requesting details about their loved ones are asked to call905-668-7711 ext. 2903 or email FairviewFamilyInquiry@durham.ca.
Residents are expected to begin moving into the new Fairview Lodge on June 23.
Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care officials were at the home to conduct the required pre-occupancy inspection on May 27 and 28. Staff is actively working to resolve outstanding items, and the ministry will have to return for a follow-up inspection. Following resolution, the Region is confident that the ministry will issue approval for residents to occupy the home, as well as a new licence. The main item to be resolved involves the nurse call system–an important component of resident safety and well-being.
All residents are able to remain at their present location until the new Fairview Lodge is ready for occupancy, and will be given priority to relocate to the new Fairview Lodge once it is opened.
