What are my Healthcare Rights

On the last Tuesday in May we were pleased to welcome Angela Moore, Complaints Advisor and Promotional Agent from CAAP-Estrie (Centre d’assistance et d’accompagnement aux plaintes – Estrie) to our Resources for Seniors Seminar. She presented a well-attended session on the rights of health care users in the Estrie Area. She gave us with some information to share here on the Village Blog!


Caring for our Caregivers

Grace Village’s Resources for Seniors Seminars are back! This month we welcome Sylvie Gilbert Fowlis, Director General, and Leigh Hortop, Caregiver Services, from Lennoxville & District Community Aid. They will be speaking on “Caring for Our Caregivers” - this seminar will help us look after this exceptional group of people, particularly Family Caregivers, as they deal with the stress and commitment it takes to provide ongoing care for seniors. They have provided us with some important information about Seniors in Canada for today’s The Village Blog post.

What are ADLs

One of our goals for The Village Blog is to provide important information that seniors & their families need when looking for a Retirement Home for their loved one. This week, we wanted to cover a topic that often comes up when discussing Care Levels at potential residences: ADL’s & IADL’s.
