Les personnes exceptionnelles créent des liens exceptionnels

Souvent, l’impact de nos personnes exceptionnelles sur les personnes résidentes et leurs familles va bien au-delà des soins et des services exceptionnels que nous prodiguons. Une main à tenir, une oreille pour écouter. Un mot d’encouragement quand la journée est dure.  

Le programme Great Connections met en vedette les relations fortes et les expériences valorisantes qui sont au cœur de nos communautés Shannex, Parkland et Faubourg dynamiques, chaleureuses et solidaires.

Cliquez sur le bouton « Tisser un lien » pour remplir un court questionnaire et envoyer votre message ou vos photos à la personne résidente ou l’employé-e de votre choix dans notre communauté.

Si vous utilisez les médias sociaux, vous pouvez aussi partager des messages d’encouragement plus généraux avec les personnes résidentes et le personnel en utilisant le mot-clic (hashtag) #GreatConnections dans vos publications. Chaque semaine, ces publications seront envoyées à nos communautés pour partager les bons sentiments et la reconnaissance exprimés.

Partagez des vœux chaleureux, des photos ou un message de remerciement dès aujourd’hui. Prenez quelques minutes pour envoyer un message et faire sourire quelqu’un!

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 connections@shannex.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.
