Resident Council Starts September 17th

Meetings will commence on September 17th at 10:15 – 11:15 in the boardroom.  This committee is comprised of AgeCare management, residents and family members. Meetings are held monthly on the third Tuesday. Run by residents or family, 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.
