Family brings love, joy, pride and a connection to the past for our residents. Family members are an invaluable resource for staff and serve as advocates for their loved one.
As a family member, you may wish to be involved in the Family Council at Golden Dawn.
A Family Council is a group of families and friends of residents in a long term care home who meet on a regular basis.
The aim of a Family Council is to act as a liaison between the residents’ family members or friends and the staff at the long term care home. It strives to facilitate communication and promote partnerships to maintain or improve a positive quality of life for all residents.
