The Holiday Giving Season is Here
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” - Winston Churchill
Pay it forward this holiday season. At some point in life, we all need support from someone who has our best interest at heart. Your kind donations, no matter how small, will help friends and family gather the knowledge and skills they need to improve the quality of life of people living in Long-Term Care and make Long-Term Care Homes places where everyone thrives.
Your donation will directly help fund initiatives that increase the capacity of Family Councils across Ontario.
Developing and nurturing strong and effective Family Councils requires training and Family Councils Ontario is here to help provide that knowledge by creating materials and hosting workshops.
The impact is profound for many; Family Councils Ontario member Sharon C.:
“After going to my first Family Council meeting, I quickly learned why I needed to get involved. My mother has been living at Hillsdale Estates for five years now, and to see how she has declined in that length of time is overwhelming to say the least. I am currently the Chair at the facility’s Family Council, and the Family Councils Ontario website offers lots of resources to help families, such as webinars and informative monthly newsletter. With the help of these resources, we were able to grow our membership from 10 to 50 members, and our email list from 40 to 120—and it keeps growing. After attending my first Family Councils Ontario conference, I realized all the hard work and dedication this team puts in to providing us with great resources and education by some of the most influential speakers in the industry.
Pay it forward, and give what you can this holiday season to help family members across Ontario make Long-Term Care Homes places where everyone thrives. Donate now.
