Debra Hauptman


Debra is the recently-retired CEO for the Langley Care Society after 12 years of service. Langley Care Society operates Langley Lodge, an accredited provider of long term care services for 139 elders.


Debra managed two COVID-19 outbreaks at Langley Lodge during the first COVID-19 wave.  The first on March 26th was a single positive case of a staff member. The second started April 27th.  It became the deadliest of BC’s first wave as 26 beloved residents passed away. Asymptomatic transmission, PPE shortages and challenges isolating elders with advanced dementia contributed to the 10-week outbreak.


In August 2020, Debra released a Report on the Langley Lodge outbreak as a resource for other care homes and health care leaders prior to the fall 2020 second wave.
