Last Mountain Pioneer Home
Last Mountain Pioneer Home (LMPH) is a long term care facility which provides room and board, care and supervision to elders in the area. It consists of 43 LTC beds and one respite bed. The facility was built in 1964 and then added onto and renovated in 1975. It was originally built by a group of community members who felt there was a need for this type of service in the community. In 1994, Last Mountain Pioneer Home entered into an amalgamation agreement with Living Sky Health District. Then with the joining of the health districts into the larger health regions in 2002, Last Mountain Pioneer Home became owned and operated by the Saskatoon Health Region.
LMPH provides 24-hour nursing care, full meal services (as well as Meals on Wheels to clients in the community), laundry, housekeeping, and a wide range of recreational activities. It also provides daycare to clients in the community who need access to services throughout the day. Numerous volunteer groups such as the LMPH Foundation, LMPH Auxiliary, various Church groups, Lions Club, Royal Bank Volunteer Program, and individual volunteers provide Last Mountain Pioneer Home with invaluable donations of time and resources.
Last Mountain Pioneer Home operates according to the Eden Philosophy which strives to create an elder-centred community for our elders to live within. This elder-centred community attempts to address the suffering caused by the “plagues” of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom by creating a human habitat which revolves around close and continuing contact with plants, animals, and children. It is these relationships that provide a pathway to a life worth living for our elders.
