The Sylvan Lake Foundation first opened the Sylvan Lake Lodge in July 1966 with the traditional "U" shape that housed 50 residents. Until 1975, the Sylvan Lake Foundation employed a live-in Matron. In 1990, extensive renovations were completed, increasing the size of the rooms but downsizing the amount of rooms available to 41. In 2000 another 18 rooms were added.
In 2003 the Sylvan Lake Foundation partnered with Bethany Care Society, the David Thompson Health Region, the Extended Care Society and the Province of Alberta to provide an "aging in place" facility on the existing land adjacent to the Lodge. The Foundation provides dietary, housekeeping and laundry to the long term care facility.
