Perhaps the most important ingredient in any Great Connection is time. The time we take to share, the time we make to listen. Taking a moment to connect is how we build the relationships that make community living such a rewarding experience for both team members and residents. Some people seem to have a special talent for this, and one of them works at Bissett Court in Nova Scotia.

A member of the recreation team, Sonia Michaud can often be seen helping Continuing Care Assistants and her fellow team members as they support residents in living their best lives. Sonia is so popular that many residents go to the Wellness Centre just to spend time with her. In addition to her professional duties, Sonia can be seen doing nails, helping with bingo and walking with residents. Even when she’s busy, she finds time to give residents her complete attention and develop  lasting connections. Bissett Court is very grateful to have such a wonderful person on their team!
