Often, the impact our Great People have in the lives of residents and their families extends far beyond the exceptional care and service provided. A hand to hold. A listening ear. A voice of encouragement on a hard day.
Great Connections celebrates the strong relationships and meaningful experiences that make up our vibrant, warm and supportive Shannex, Parkland and Faubourg communities.
By clicking the “Make a Connection” button below, you will be asked to complete a short online form so your message or photos can be collected and then distributed to the appropriate residents or team members at sites.
If you use social media, you can also share kind messages with residents and team members more broadly by sharing posts using the hashtag #GreatConnections. These posts will be sent to our communities on a weekly basis to spread kindness and share appreciation for our team members.
Share a warm wish, photo or thank you message today; it only takes a few minutes to “hit send” and make someone smile.
We would love to hear your Great Connection
There are two ways to share your Great Connection story on our website. Residents, families and our team members can submit a Caught You Being Great nomination to recognize an individual or group for going above and beyond. Some of these nominations will be featured as part of our Great Connections program. Or, send an email to email@example.com to describe your experience, recognize a team member or volunteer or express your support.
COVID-19 has impacted us all and we have taken steps to
make sure our communities stay healthy and safe. However, while staying well
and protecting seniors remains our top priority, this has made connections
between family members a little challenging. We recognize these relationships
are vital to residents and loved ones.
We will continue to share stories of perseverance,
courage and honour the human spirit as we work through this together.
This Great Connection focuses on our location in Truro
and team members who are making sure these touch points still happen.
