Admission – Life-Lease Suites


Acquiring one of Elim Lodge’s Life-Lease suites is similar, in some respects, to purchasing a condominium. Your purchase price guarantees that you can continue to occupy the suite for as long as you are able to live independently in it. Unlike buying a condominium, you do not own the suite. When you no longer require the suite for whatever reason, Elim Lodge refunds your purchase cost or current market value, whichever is less.


As noted above, applicants must be capable of independent living with the help of the services we provide. Staff members are not qualified nor permitted to provide any nursing care or other personal care. These services are available through licensed providers such as Home Care, Saskatoon Home Support or LutherCare Home Help Services. Residents who have been assessed as requiring Personal Care services will not qualify for admission to Elim Lodge Assisted Living suites. For those who require such care, Elim Lodge Inc. operates a Personal Care facility at Hyde Park View. (306-373- 6333). Elim Lodge is a non-smoking facility (even in your suite). No pets are allowed.

Monthly Fees

As a not-for-profit corporation, we keep the monthly fees as low as possible.  The life-lease monthly fee includes your proportion of property taxes, utilities (except for electricity), maintenance fees, common area costs, staff salaries, landscaping and more.  Fees are based on the size of the suite.  Larger suites pay a little bit more and smaller suites a little less.  The fees charged for available suites may be obtained from the Office. 

Managing Body

The Elim Lodge Inc. corporation is owned and operated by the Board of Directors.  The Board is responsible for the governance of the corporation and delegates responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the corporation to the CEO and the management team.  Elim Lodge Inc. is a Registered Charity in the province of Saskatchewan and issues income tax deductible Charitable Giving Receipts.
