Communication is key

A Family Council can make a difference in the quality of life of every resident. We are advocates for quality care, a safe home environment, and the general well-being of residents. We act as a sounding board for new ideas and support partnership in resident care.

One-on-one mentoring

Our main purpose is to be a partner in helping to improve the quality of life of residents and to give their families a voice in decisions that affect them and their loved ones.

If you need someone to talk to, one of our experienced family council members will sit down with you, one-to-one and talk things through. You are not alone. We will be pleased to share our experiences with you and help guide you if you need to access personnel, services or research that might be of help.
