The RPN is a team leader and home area advocate. They not only perform to their full scope of practice as identified by the College of Nurses of Ontario, but their duties also include: assessment, documentation, care plan development and updates, addressing resident and family concerns, dispensing medication, administering specific treatments, addressing care issues, ensuring that the care plan is implemented, as well as many other responsibilities. Inquires regarding any specific resident should be directed to the RPN on the home area where the resident resides.
The Personal Support Worker (PSW) is the primary caregiver to the resident. The present certificate program requires nine months of college training. The role of PSWs has changed significantly over the years and now encompasses every aspect of the resident's personal care including meeting the physical, social, psychological and emotional needs of our residents, and addressing any behavioural issues that may arise. PSWs develop strong relationships with our residents, and possess a passion for their role and a compassion for each resident. We are proud of our PSWs, and their commitment and dedication to our residents and Lakeland.

Mealtime is the highlight event for many of our residents. The dietary servers are employees of Aramark (contracted service) but considered equal members of the Lakeland team. Dietary staff are responsible for preparing the dining room before and after each meal. They are also responsible for ensuring food is a proper temperature, in the correct portion, and nicely presented. The courtesy and care consistently shown by dietary staff help make mealtime a pleasant experience for our residents.
Lakeland's housekeepers are an important part of the team and the housekeeping staff have some of the strongest relationships with our residents because they interact with each other daily. The housekeeping staff provide invaluable care to the residents and their dedication is obvious. We recognize and truly appreciate all the hard work that they do.
Lakeland has many partners including the West Parry Sound Health Centre (WPSHC), Aramark, Classic Care Pharmacy, Centric Health and others.
WEST PARRY SOUND HEALTH CENTRE
Lakeland is owned by and attached to the West Parry Sound Health Centre (WPSHC). Donald Sanderson is the CEO of both WPSHC and Lakeland Long Term Care. The WPSHC provides Lakeland with a number of purchased services, including meal preparation, laundry, maintenance, IT and financial/payroll services. Both organizations gain from the sharing of these services, creating a multi-faceted health care provider of acute and long term care.
Aramark is a contracted service providing dietary, housekeeping, and environmental support. Lakeland's dietary servers and housekeepers are Aramark employees, as is the Manager of Support Services. Aramark staff are considered as much a part of Lakeland as anyone else who works in the home. Aramark plays a major role at Lakeland and all their staff do an excellent job. We are proud of their accomplishments and their obvious dedication to Lakeland.
