Biographical history

The Glendale Lodge Society was formed in 1969-1970 to operate non-profit facilities in the Victoria BC region for the residential care of adults with mental disabilities. In 1973 the society opened its first personal care home, Tillicum Lodge. In 1980 the Glendale Lodge Society acquired Oak Bay Lodge. In 1987 the society was renamed the Oak Bay–Tillicum Care Society. In 1989 the society was divided into the Tillicum Care Society and the Oak Bay Lodge Society. In June 1992, the Tillicum Care Society was renamed the Tillicum and Veterans Care Society to reflect federal funding for 115 priority access beds at the new facility to be called the Lodge at Broadmead.

Scope and content

The series consists of the records of the board of directors, the Administrative Heads Committee (Department Head Committee), Accreditation Committee, Policy and Procedure Committee, Senior Management Team, Resident Services Committee, Resident Programme and Policy Committee, the Implementation Committee, and the Finance and Administration Committee.

The records includes meeting minutes, executive director’s reports, Glendale/Tillicum administrator’s reports, Oak Bay Lodge reports, chief executive officer’s reports, department month-end reports and audits, and the annual reports of the society and of various departments. This reporting includes resident incident reports (numbers of incidents involving residents on a monthly basis), and reports giving considerable detail on personnel.

Other records in addition to minutes are: correspondence; policy and procedure manuals; reports and studies; the society’s constitution and bylaws; Glendale organization charts (including Tillicum Lodge and Oak Bay Lodge); and a history in booklet form of the society (The Glendale Lodge Society 1970-1982 by Rosemary Neering).

Subject matter includes all aspects of the operation of the facilities. This includes coordination with provincial ministries, (including the Ministry of Social Services, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social Services and Housing); appointments of board members; the operation of group homes in general; and all issues surrounding the closure of the Glendale facilities.

The creator of the records had no classification or coding system applied to the records. They are arranged generally by creating body (for example by the name of a committee) and then grouped chronologically.
