Welcome to Fred Douglas Lodge!

Before you can be admitted to Fred Douglas Lodge, you must have an assessment done by Home Care. If you are living at home, you need to contact the Long Term Care Access Centre Intake Line (204) 788-8330. They will arrange for an assessment to be done by a Home Care Case Coordinator. If you are already receiving Home Care, please speak to your Case Coordinator. If you are in a hospital and waiting for placement, the hospital has a Home Care department that will help you access the appropriate options.
Once you have been assessed and your application completed with the assistance of Home Care, you will be asked for your first choice facility for placement. Prior to making your choice, it is helpful to call and tour facilities that interest you. This gives you and your family the knowledge needed to make the best choice. Once your application has been sent to the facility, staff will review the information to ensure your needs can be met.
