Lakeridge Gardens

Welcome to Lakeridge Gardens

Lakeridge Gardens is a state-of-the-art long-term care home located next to Lakeridge Health’s Ajax Pickering Hospital. Serving the Durham Region, the 320-bed home opened in the spring of 2022.

Below is a list of some of the features and services of this new home:

  • Evidence-informed infection prevention and control measures, a modern design, and care planning that prioritizes residents’ quality of life.
  • The majority of resident rooms are private. The semi-private rooms have separate bedrooms with a shared bathroom.
  • The home has some specially designed rooms to support bariatric resident needs.
  • The second floor includes a specialized behavioural unit with access to a secure rooftop terrace.
  • A nine-station dialysis unit will also be housed on the first floor of the building. The new dialysis unit will mean an increased quality of life for residents who can access treatment in the comfort of their home. This unit will also be available to those in the community who require dialysis services.
  • To promote socialization, the home features a landscaped courtyard, four balconies per floor, a hair salon, great room, gift shop, and multiple gathering lounges.
