Strathmere Lodge's long and rich history begins in 1880 when the County of Middlesex built the House of Refuge on a 46.5 acre site on the outskirts of Strathroy. The House was home to all who were destitute or otherwise unable to support themselves because of age or disability. Many men, women and children found their way to the home often known as the Poor House. A tornado struck the House in 1953 doing extensive damage to the top floor which was subsequently removed.
The role of the County changed during the fifties to providing care for the elderly and this led to the demolition of the old House and the building of Strathmere Lodge in 1962. Changing expectations on building design for seniors care was once again responsible for the construction of our new building opened in 2006.
Strathmere Lodge is a member of AdvantAge Ontario.
