An Irish Blessing
May the sun shine all day long
Everything go right & nothing wrong
May those you love
Bring love back to you
May all the wishes you wish come true
With the opening of our new community in north-east Calgary, AgeCare SkyPointe, in the spring there will be some upcoming leadership changes at some of the communities, including AgeCare Sagewood.
I am honored to have been asked to assume the role of General Manager at AgeCare Glenmore. I will be joining the AgeCare Glenmore team on February 26, 2018.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the residents & family of AgeCare Sagewood for all of your support over the last 3 years. Reflecting back on what we have accomplished together during the previous few years, there is much to be proud of. AgeCare Sagewood team worked tirelessly to provide the best quality of life experience for each and everyone of our residents. Our 2017 residents and families experience overall satisfaction of 94%. Staff were provided an opportunity to share their thoughts on a number of questions related to the work environment and 95% of staff would recommend this organization to friends and family who require care. In addition, AgeCare Sagewood is the winner for Best in Senior Services for Strathmore, Langdon & Chestermere two years in a row. Throughout the past few years, staff, volunteers, and partners have brought the community together with our annual Strathmore Stampede BBQ and have our residents participate in the Heritage Parade. As a community we were able to meet, surpass, and sustain the goals that we were tasked with. I will miss AgeCare Sagewood’s enthusiasm, perseverance and can-do attitude team, families and residents. I wish you all the very best.
