Regina Lutheran Home to Remain Open – Families Relieved.

Families with residents in the Regina Lutheran Home – are breathing a sigh of relief today. The province announcing that the Lutheran Care home will remain operational.

“After hearing from residents and families, I asked the Ministry of Health to work with the SHA to reconsider the viability of purchasing Regina Lutheran Home,” Mental Health and Addictions, Rural and Remote Heath and Seniors Minister Tim McLeod said. “After positive discussions with Eden Care, an agreement has been reached that will keep Regina Lutheran Home open.”

For residents this is a relief! Both Val Schalme’s Father and Brother live in the facility.

“Our worries are gone. Our family members will be together. Just the fact that they will stay in a familiar environment will be so good for them.

Schalme said she has received shocked texts from other community members. Expressing disbelief when a battle like this is won.

Eden Care Communities will continue to manage the operations of the home under a service agreement with SHA until April 11, 2024 ensuring a smooth transition.

Regular operations at the home will continue – residents with alternative placements can return to the home.

This move aligns with the commitment to maintain 62 long-term care beds, part of the plan to add 600 in Regina.
