This fall has been such a busy yet productive season. Now we look forward to the Christmas season.
Sagewood has passed our accommodation Audit with 100%. Not only did we meet the criteria of the audit, we exceeded them and have been granted a 2 year license for Supportive Living. This is rare so thank you to all the staff for making this a great place to be.
As most people are aware we welcome the AUPE union to our site and we look forward to working alongside this organization.
As our Administration Team work tirelessly making sure Sagewood operates with the highest of standards, the feedback forms that are found in each neighborhood is a valuable tool to ensure all needs are being met. If you have concerns please feel free to contact myself, Glenda Boc the Director of Care or the Resident Care Managers. Shereen Khan is the RCM for Eagle Lake/ Dawson Lake and Elizabeth Oforiwaah is the RCM for Golden Hills, Langdon and Rockyford neighborhoods.
I personally would like to invite all Residents and their families to our annual Christmas Party on Dec. 17th at 2:00. I would also like to extend the happiest of holiday seasons to each and every one. My wish is that everyone has a safe and fun filled holiday season.

This fall has been a very busy time for everyone here at Sagewood. We have had the Community Paramedics and Geriatric Mental Health Outreach Nurse attend our Family Association meeting which has been extremely helpful explaining these 2 areas of care. We have also organized 2 sessions of the Dementia family education facilitated by Mary Elizabeth Cooper our Nurse Practitioner. Because this was such successful event, we are hoping to host another session in January. Please watch for dates as we will advertise on bulletin boards and our newsletter.
Our resident flu clinic was extremely successful! Both Supportive living and Long Term Care were administered the flu vaccine with great results.
November is Dementia month for our staff so we will be doing some targeted, focused and experiential learning for all of our staff.
If there is any other education that families would like to see, please let me know.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s learning to dance in the rain
