Family Caregiver Support Group
Are you interested in joining a support group where you meet other caregivers? Talk with and learn from others who share common experiences. Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of the month beginning September 19th from 2:00pm to 3:30pm.
Call Alexa Grinevitch, SW 403-873-2617 to register. Space is limited
Meetings will commence on September 20th at 10:30 – 11:30 in the boardroom. This committee is comprised of AgeCare management, residents and family members. Meetings are held monthly on the third Tuesday. The purpose of the committee is to receive and share information relevant to residents living at
AgeCare Midnapore. The meeting provides residents the opportunity to participate in decision-making with regard to programs and services. It is intended to improve the quality of life by opening the lines of communication between residents and management. Although we have existing residents and family members that represent our neighbourhoods on the committee, other residents / family can attend the meetings on a drop in basis.
For more information, contact Alexa Grinevitch Social Worker, at 403-873-2617 if you are interested.
COMING SOON—Televisions Outside of Dining Rooms!
