The Lodge provides a family type atmosphere with support from other patients, volunteers and highly dedicated staff. A Registered Practical Nurse is on duty 24 hours a day to provide monitoring and assistance as necessary. There is a small cost associated with stays at the lodge (which may be eligible for an accomodation allowance through the Northern Health Travel Grant), and while there are kitchens available for use, meals are not provided.
Daffodil Terrace was built, equipped, and furnished by the Canadian Cancer Society. When opened in 1991, it was given to the Ontario Cancer Treatment and Research Foundation (now the Northeast Cancer Center) for use by cancer patients. The Lodge is now also supported by donations from the Northern Cancer Foundation.
