We are a private Family Care Home on 2 acres, just north of Ladysmith with two people in care. Our residents enjoy more personal care than an institutional setting can provide, delivered with respect and compassion. From a little help to extensive care and assistance. Professional and competent according to your doctor's direction and your wishes.
It's important to our residents that they retain as much dignity and control over their lives as possible, regardless of care level. If this is important to you, Lynn's Seniors Care Home is the the warm, supportive kind of setting you are hoping to find.
Just a moment's walk, scooter, or wheelchair ride to the Ocean.
We have hosted many family events with our residents. Holiday dinners, birthday parties, and family gatherings to name a few.
Rooms are private and spacious, with a bit of ocean view over the gardens. Couples are welcome.
Pets accepted on a case by case basis dependant on temperament and compatibility.
