Welcome to the Battle River Lodge

The Battle River lodge is a Senior Citizens home that officially opened in 1958.

The Battle River Foundation is a non-profit organization, which focuses on providing residents with an affordable facility as well as programs that promote choice, independence and healthy living.

Residents must be functionally independent and medically stable, as no medical care is available from Lodge employees. In certain circumstance, consideration is given to younger individuals.

The Battle River Foundation is supported by:

  • The Town of Wainwright
  • M.D. of Wainwright #61
  • Villages of Irma, Edgerton, Chauvin

Lodge Accommodations

Basic furnishings are provided and we encourage residents to bring in some of their own furniture.

Food Services

The Foundation provides three meals everyday at pre-set times. Meals are served from a steam table in the central dining room.

Individual diet monitoring is not available. Guests of residents are welcome to have meals for a nominal fee. Beverages and light snacks are available at all times.


The Foundation provides the following housekeeping services:

  • Basic room cleaning, Personal Laundry once per week
  • Bedding changes and towels changes once per week
  • Coin operated laundry machines are available for resident’s use

Social & Recreation

The Lodge is staffed with an Activity Coordinator who arranges exercise programs, crafts, outings, and other activities, which foster the residents continued involvement in family and community life. Many service groups and individuals volunteer their time for a variety of programs. The Lodge has a 14 passenger bus to accommodate residents for day trips.


The Foundation takes all reasonable measures to safeguard the security and safety of the residents. This includes 24-hour non-medical staff, alarmed security doors and occasional courtesy checks. The Lodge staff cannot and will not guarantee that residents will be individually monitored or supervised. The Lodge is the resident’s home where freedoms and privileges of home are respected.

The Battle River Foundation does not provide personal care services. These services are available through the Home Care Program.


Residents are responsible for arranging for their own transportation outside the Lodge.
