Welcome Chartwell Long-Term Care Residences!

Welcoming Chartwell Long-Term Care Residences to the Partnerships in Dementia Care Alliance.

      
 

We are excited to welcome Chartwell Long-Term Care Residences to the PiDC Alliance. The Alliance will be partnering with two homes: The Willowgrove (Ancaster, Ontario) that accommodates 169 residents, supported by 210 staff members; and The Royal Oak (Kingsville, Ontario) that accommodates 160 residents, supported by 210 staff members. 

Chartwell homes strive to make people's lives better by providing a happy, healthy and more fulfilling life experiences for older adults; peace of mind for residents' loved ones; and attracting and retaining employees who care about making a difference in residents' lives. Chartwell values respect, empathy, service excellence, performance, education, commitment, and trust.

We are looking forward to our new partnership with Chartwell and assisting with their culture change journey!

Celebrating Bloomington Cove's Success!

On June 25th, the Partnering Together for Change Coalition at Bloomington Cove celebrated their successes thus far with residents, family members, staff, administration and citizens from the broader community. Leadership from Leisure World were also in attendance for the festivities.

CCC members shared their experiences and Bloomington Cove’s dedication to the culture change process. The event was an opportunity to launch four aspiration statement posters and staff lanyard tags that are being used to share the new vision for Bloomington Cove with others and gather ideas and strategies from residents, family members, staff, and community partners on how Bloomington Cove can make their aspiration statements a reality. The feedback will inform their Design phase as they move forward in the culture change journey.
