Location: Hospital Conference Room

Kim Cantwell (Menno Home Care Manager) will be our guest speaker where she will discuss Infection Control along with the importance of educating residents, families and staff towards preventing infection to our residents in long term care.
Evidence shows that persons who receive a palliative approach suffer less, are physically capable for longer; are better able to interact with others for longer, may survive 25% longer, and family members are less likely to experience depressions after their loved one has died.
We hope that you are able to attend this informative session.
If a family member, friend or representative of a resident in Menno Home or Hospital would like to lead, facilitate or play a role in family council, please speak to Social Workers Dan Janzen and Precy De Armas.
