St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre has a a committee of Long-term Care and Complex Continuing Care residents and patients called the Residents’ Council.
The Council is our residents’ and patients’ voice when it comes to enhancing their daily lives and improving services at their Centre.
Feedback from the Residents’ Council helps our entire team evaluate and change our services and programs to better suit our residents’ and patients’ needs.
All residents/patients are entitled to be on the Residents’ Council. Resident Council Presidents are elected by their peers. They play an important role in each home as ambassadors for other residents. The Residents’ Council members meet once a month to:
- Discuss residents’/patients’ concerns.
- Gather residents’/patients’ suggestions.
- Plan social activities and outings to ensure residents/patients enjoy their time at the Centre.
St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre has a committee of Long-term Care family and friends called the Family Council.
The Council is our families and friends’ voice when it comes to improving the quality of life here at the Centre.
The Family Council is an organized, self-led, self-determining, democratic group composed of family and friends to the residents. A staff member appointed by the Home assists the Council and attends meetings on request.
