The Mutchmor Lodge Pledge
To ensure that the assets of Mutchmor Lodge are diligently managed. Design policies and procedures that reflect the spirit and objectives of the corporation.
Mutchmor Lodge and Hewitt Place were built by The United Church Housing Corporation of Regina in the early 60’s to provide affordable living accommodation for seniors. Mutchmor Lodge is named after the two United Church of Canada ministers who founded the United Housing corporation; Reverends Harry and James Mutchmor. Eight United Churches sponsored the purchase of the land to build a 48 bed hostel for seniors that opened in may 1961. The Corporation was established as a non-profit organization charity. Due to an increase in the need for independent senior housing demands, the Hewitt place housing apartments were added to the facility in 1963. In the mid 90’s legislation in health changed. In cooperation with the Regina Health District, Mutchmor Lodge was designated as an assisted living facility. The facilities were renovated to accommodate the changing needs of the seniors and were reopened with renovated suites including half bath as well as small one bedrooms suites with showers. Because of a substantial waiting list in 2003 for Mutchmor Lodge, Wascana Wing was planned. The four story Wascana Wing completed in June 2005, adding 50 assisted housing suites to the 52 existing assisted housing suites. The new wing was designed by Pattison MGM Architectural Services and constructed by Graham Construction and Engineering. To allow this construction one of the Hewitt Place Buildings was torn down in 2004. The Wascana Wing gets its name from the Wascana Presbytery, a regional member of the United Church of Canada. The new wing is energy efficient; with high efficiency boilers that recycles heat and energy efficient lighting through out the building.
Clare Parker Homes was founded in 1977 by a group of churches from the Wascana Presbytery Division of the United Church of Canada. The first house was named in memory of Clare Parker, the first Director of the Capital Cosmos Centre. In 2009, Clare Parker Homes amalgamated with a Catholic faith-based agency in Regina. Today, various United Church members as well as members from the Regina community and the Catholic Church community, volunteer their time as board members to maintain the residences and provide homes which will promote the highest level of well-being for each individual who lives at the house and is under its care. Clare Parker Homes Inc. take much pride in their homes. Qualified staff provide round-the-clock care and residents, under the direction of staff, participate in basic life skills like housecleaning, laundry and meal-preparation. Each resident has a bedroom which is decorated to personal liking. Coffee and meal time provide an opportunity for socialization. Independent times can be spent watching TV, listening to music or entertaining friends. Community events like swimming, bowling, crafts and dancing (soon back to pre-covid) are open to residents. Visiting parks, taking in a movie, attending church and having meal-outings are other optional past times. In general, Clare Parker Homes Inc. is not just a house; it’s a home where all who live there, operate together as “family”.
Operational funding for Clare Parker Homes Inc. comes through Community Living Service Delivery (a branch of Social Services) and from the donations of the community and other churches and organizations at large. Monetary donations for Clare Parker Homes Inc. are tax deductible.
