Our Team

Honouring Elders is a value we strive to demonstrate and inspire in future generations

The Team at Kinsmen Lodge

Kinsmen Lodge is governed by the Whalley & District Senior Citizens Housing Society, a non-profit organization which was incorporated in 1961. We built our first home on Old Yale Road in 1975 and have continued to offer healthcare services to Surrey seniors ever since.

The Board welcomes new members to the Society and invites their participation at the Annual General Meeting held in June each year. The Board of Directors is charged with providing complex care according to the provisions of the Community Care and Assisted Living Act. The Board is responsible for policy development, strategic planning and quality improvement, so that Kinsmen Lodge, through its staff, is able to maintain the highest quality service to meet our community’s needs.

Honouring Elders is a value we strive to demonstrate and inspire in future generations. The Board continues the vision to foster a culture that strives to eliminate the plagues of our Elders – loneliness, helplessness and boredom.

Elder’s Council members represent all of our residence and communicate on their behalf to the Leadership Team regarding safety, food, recreation, special events, decor and new ideas. You can often see them meeting with new residence soon after they move in and welcoming them to our home.

Living at Kinsmen Lodge you can have a very busy and active life, if you so choose. As always, it is up to each person to decide what they would like to become involved in. Participation is a choice and if people need help getting to a program they just need to ask. In addition to being involved in various Recreation activities, Elders have many opportunities to volunteer in our home. It is an important way to give back to others and provides meaningful work.

All of our Elders are an inspiration to all staff, volunteers and visitors alike, as they continue to share their wisdom and life experience to the benefit of everyone.
