Hillview Lodge opens doors to new residents

dsc_0121.jpg “Nice and bright, I’m excited,” new Hillview Lodge resident Angie Gieck told The Mail last week as she was packing up her belongings getting ready to move to the new 8.8 million dollar senior care lodge on Riverside Drive in Drumheller. Mrs. Gieck and many of her fellow residents of the Drumheller and District Seniors Foundation moved into the recently completed 36 room facility on St. Patrick’s Day. Officially designated as a Designated Supportive Living Residence (DSL), it is designed to provide assisted care for seniors who require both “scheduled and unscheduled needs”, according to Janet Senior, Chief Administrative Officer, of the complex.

Starland, villages partner to deliver FCSS programs

Starland County, in conjunction with the villages of Morrin, Munson and Delia are looking at a new way to deliver Family and Community Support Services (FCSS) programs. The county receives provincial funding to deliver programming, and in previous years they have used it to fund programs through the Prairie Land Regional School Division. “Ever since we got into FCSS, we have given all of our funding allocation to Prairie Land for operating the community resource worker program,” said Starland CAO Ross Rawlusyk. “They run a fairly large regional program with resource workers in Hanna and Consort for example, and there is no consistency on who pays in to it.”
