Mountain Lake residents and staff celebrate nursing award.

Mountain Lake receives Nursing Award

Mountain Lake Seniors Community in Nelson, BC has received the Kootenay Best of Business Award in Nursing Care for several years, a reflection of the quality of care at this state-of-the-art care community which offers both assisted living and complex care.

A campus of care offering complex care and assisted living for 135 elders, Mountain Lake opened its doors in November, 2005.  AdvoCare Home Health and Park Place have come together at Mountain Lake to provide excellence in nursing care including life enrichment, rehab services and other supports in our home-like Cottages.

Park Place’s vision of ‘enriching the lives of seniors through innovation’ is embodied in Mountain Lake’s mission of ‘having every resident laugh every day’.  We aim to have residents feel cared for, comfortable and able to laugh. That the Kootenay community has repeatedly voted us worthy of the Readers Choice Award for Nursing Care makes our day!  We continue to serve with our residents’ needs and wishes as paramount.
