Attention Residents and Family Members of AgeCare SkyPointe

Resident and Family Councils Act

The Resident and Family Council Act was passed in 2017 and supports the establishment of resident and family councils in all long-term care and licensed supportive living facilities with four or more residents. Your facility operator/service provider is required to support the establishment of a council within your facility.

What the purpose of a council?

A council is intended to be a forum where residents and their family members can:

  • improve the quality of life for all residents;
  • work together on issues with their facility operator/service provider;
  • identify needs and concerns of residents; and
  • Be involved in decision-making.

What does a council look like?

Residents and family members will be free to decide on the council structure and processes, including:

  • Members’ roles;
  • Meeting format and frequency; and
  • When and how facility representatives should be involved in council meetings.

Interested in actively participating in SkyPointe’s Resident and Family Council?

For any questions or if you are interested in joining the SkyPointe Resident and Family Council please contact: Marlee Dukart (Recreation Therapy Manager)

P: 587-619-6317 E: mdukart@agecare.ca OR Join us on October 19, 2018 @ 3:00 pm in the Learning Centre located on the main floor.
