On Wednesday, November 27, Muskoka Landing broke ground on its new Retirement Lodge. The new development will include 100 residents’ suites and 14 waterfront townhouses adjacent to Muskoka Landing Long-Term Care Home.
“As an organization, we are proud and honoured to be part of the Huntsville community and feel privileged that we have been able to extend our tradition of excellence in care to local seniors, their family members and the community at large for almost 20 years,” said David Jarlette, president of Jarlette Health Services, in a media release. “The introduction of Muskoka Landing Retirement Lodge marks a new chapter at 65 Rogers Cove Drive, as we look forward to developing multi-faceted accommodation options to service a wider demographic of local seniors and those living in the surrounding area, while also amplifying our existing care and service offerings and establishing a robust, seniors’-focused community that will continue to meet the unique needs of our trusted community for years to come.”
The new Retirement Lodge will also provide employment opportunities from nursing and healthcare to management, operations and administration and environmental, recreation and culinary services, according to the release.
Construction of Muskoka Landing Retirement Lodge is expected to span a two-year period.
