Elgin County Seeks Public Feedback Regarding Naming at Terrace Lodge
March 16, 2022
For Immediate Release
Central Elgin, ON – The County of Elgin is asking residents of Terrace Lodge and their families, Elgin County staff, and members of the public for feedback regarding the naming of resident home areas and common areas in the newly redeveloped home. Feedback is being collected through a survey that will be available until April 21, 2022.
The Terrace Lodge Long-Term Care Home located in Malahide Township, Elgin County is undergoing a redevelopment that is scheduled to be completed in 2024. Terrace Lodge was originally built in 1977 and has been home to hundreds of Elgin County residents over the past 40 years. The redevelopment has been designed to better meet the complex needs of Long-Term Care residents now and into the future. Phase One of construction is well underway and it is now time to select updated, meaningful, community-based names for new resident home areas and common areas.
“Terrace Lodge has been an important part of our community for over forty years,” said Warden Mary French. “This is an exciting opportunity to choose names for our resident home areas and common areas that are modern, inviting and unique to the community in which Terrace Lodge is located. I often find that some of the most creative ideas come from members of our community. I encourage residents and anyone who has a connection with Terrace Lodge Long-Term Care Home to fill out this short survey and provide us with your valuable feedback.”
Paper copies of the survey are available at Terrace Lodge for residents, their families, visitors, and staff. Paper copies of the survey are also available at all ten branches of the Elgin County Library. The survey can be accessed online at: https://engageelgin.ca/tlredevelopment/survey_tools/terrace-lodge-redevelopment-resident-home-area-and-common-area-naming
