Attention Family & Friends!

Would you like to become part of the caring Cassellholme community?  

If you are connected to one of our residents and would like to play a role in the quality of care here at Cassellholme - we'd like to talk with you!  

Long-Term Care Homes are required, per the Act, to encourage family and friends of residents to participate in a Family Council. We also do it because we know you are affected by both the positive outcomes and the challenges that your loved ones experience. 

This is a self-led, self-directed group of volunteers who: 

  • provide assistance, information, and advice to residents, family members, and friends of residents; 
  • support and plan activities for residents; and  
  • make recommendations to management regarding the operation of the Home.

Topics discussed range from admission procedures, communication about the plan of care, and humanizing discharge; to palliative care, hand hygiene and evacuation measures. As a Council member, you'll receive information from Cassellholme staff about current successes and issues faced in delivering compassionate care to those we serve.

To participate, come to a meeting and give your info to the President/Chair.

Family Council Meetings are held on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 2:00 p.m. in the Cassellholme Garden Room.

If you would like more information about joining the Family Council, please contact:
