Family Council Week at Iroquois Lodge

The “Iroquois Lodge Knit Gang” spent the winter making an afghan and a crib quilt that they are planning to donate to the Iroquois Lodge Family Council later this month for fund raising.

The purpose of the Family Council is to provide a forum for family input into the operations of the Lodge home. The Family Council has been established to provide the following for families and residents: to provide families with a voice in decisions that affects them and their family members, to establish two-way communication between family members and the home staff, to provide a means of mutual support for Family Council members and families of new residents, to allow family members to be informed about the long term care system as a whole and to provide a forum for discussion about strategies for improvement, and, to promote and encourage activities directed at the provision of quality care and quality of life for the residents.
