During the period of September 1994 to October 1996, a capital construction project was undertaken which included the renovation of the existing 60 beds as well as a 20-bed addition for cognitively impaired (Alzheimer's and other dementia) and behaviorally disruptive residents. Community fundraising provided 60,000 for a chapel to meet the spiritual needs of the residents, families' and staff.

Two of the 80 beds are designated as Respite Care Beds.
The Rose Unit (20 beds) provides for those who are affected by a variety of dementia, and exhibit difficult to manage behaviors such as wandering, inappropriate behavior, require direction/supervision for all Activities of Daily Living, and unprovoked, unexpected aggression.
The Crocus Unit (26 beds) philosophy and programming provides for those residents who have a variety of physical disabilities but who are mentally alert and able to maintain as much independence, control and decision making as possible.
The Shamrock Unit (34 beds) provides for the very heavy care residents who are affected both physically and mentally, and have a variety of communication disorders.
In addition to the personal care home beds, East-Gate Lodge offers an Adult Day Program on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week. At present there are 18 participants enrolled with an average attendance of 9-10 participants per day.
