Residential Care Services (Long term/Nursing Home Care)
Residential care services (previously referred to as Long-term care or Nursing Home Care) are for adults who can no longer live safely or independently at home because of their complex health care needs. Langley Lodge offers a total of 112 funded spaces and 27 private pay spaces. While most rooms are single occupancy, there are some shared accommodations suites for couples who wish to come into care together.
Types of Accommodations
Our organization is able to offer both Fraser Health funded and private pay rooms.
Subsidized residential care:
Langley Lodge is a residential care home where the monthly fee for care is partially funded by Fraser Health and partially paid for by the resident. An assessment by Fraser Health staff is required for admission to a subsidized space.
To be eligible for subsidized residential care, a person must:
- have a health care need that has been assessed by Fraser Health professional staff as requiring 24-hour nursing care in a residential care home
- be over 19 years of age
- be a Canadian citizen, or a permanent resident who meets BC’s residency requirements
- agree to the assessment process, which includes releasing financial information
- have tried all of the avenues available for receiving care at home
Private pay residential care:
Langley Lodge also offers seniors care services that are paid for privately by the resident and not funded by Fraser Health. Depending on individual circumstances, this may be the right option for either temporary or permanent care. An assessment by Fraser Health staff is not needed for admission when the resident is paying the full cost of care.
Assessment and Referral Process
Typically, when a family is seeking information to make arrangements for residential care for an elderly relative, they will need to contact Fraser Health Authority’s Home Health Care Intake Office (604-953-4965). An Intake Worker will provide information, determine eligibility and conduct an assessment at a pre-arranged time.

Each resident who has been assessed by Fraser Health Authority and placed at Langley Lodge care home is required to pay a daily user fee based on his or her annual income as reported to the Canada Revenue Agency. This daily rate is assessed by Fraser Health Residential Services prior to placement and is subject to change on yearly basis. At Langley Lodge, fees cover most of our services, except for medications and personal care items.
Private pay accommodation rates are available upon request.
