Throughout our lives, we create connections with a variety of things, including people, pets, places and cultures. Celebrating the diversity of our communities is one of the ways that Shannex strives to foster meaningful relationships not only between team members and residents, but also within our teams and with the communities to which they belong.

Cedarstone Enhanced Care in Truro, Nova Scotia, has a very special connection to the Filipino Community. In 2010, Shannex hired six Registered Nurses from the Philippines. Recently, all six people, all of whom continue to be part of the Shannex family, came together at Cedarstone to celebrate Filipino Heritage Month with music, dancing and delicious authentic cuisine. For many residents it was the first time they had seen and heard music and dance of this type before, and they absolutely loved the experience.
