Resident and Family Councils
The Residents Council represents the needs and wishes of the residents at Providence Manor, and works with administration to identify issues and develop collaborative solutions. The Council strives to maintain social, cultural and spiritual values which residents cherish by tradition (adapted from the Providence Manor Residents Council Terms of Reference, 2002).
Family Council is an autonomous part of the Providence Manor community, and consists of family members and friends of residents. If you have a loved one at Providence Manor, you are already considered to be a Family Council Member.
Be sure to get your name on the Family Council contact list.
We regularly send out information that may be of interest to you.
It’s a great way for family and friends to:
- be informed
- stay connected
- get updates on events

Those interested are more than welcome to attend the monthly council meetings.
- To find support
- To address concerns and questions

The Council’s mission is to improve the quality of life of residents, and to give families a voice in decisions which affect them and their loved ones in the Home through communication, advocacy and education.
