Patient and Family Engagement Project Working Group

December 18, 2023

Members of the Winnipeg Health Region’s Quality and Patient Safety team are developing resources and guiding principles for engaging with patients, clients, residents, caregivers, families, natural supports, and communities. Involving people with lived and living experience in making decisions about the design, improvement, and delivery of healthcare services is part of our work on creating a culture of people- and patient-centered care.

The WRHA is looking for 5-10 Patient and Family Advisors to work with us to create guiding principles for engagement, as well as tools and resources to support this work across all sectors of the Winnipeg Health Region (acute, long-term, and community care). We will work together to decide on the best ways to recruit people for engagement activities, how best to engage, and how we can create safe, accessible, inclusive, diverse, and equitable spaces for engagement.

While there is no set deadline to be involved in the Working Group, we hope to begin onboarding members in January 2024. We also have other ways for you to be involved as a Patient and Family Advisor. for more information, please click here.


Seasons Greetings!

December 15, 2023

Season’s Greetings to all of our Residents and families. We hope you and your family have a safe and happy Holiday Season. We are very excited about the New Year coming as we work towards new initiatives for the Home. In the past year thanks to The Stevenson funding provided to the Home we were able to increase our Nursing and Health care aide staff and our Rehab department. Spiritual Care was added and there was an increase in Social Work hours. We were also able to hire an infection Control Associate. Long Term Care is so important for the people of this province and we appreciate all of the support from the Residents and families as they advocate for the best possible care.

Thank you to all of the families for your donations and support the past year

Happy New Year!


Congratulations to our STAR for September – Kim from our recreation department. Keep up the good work Kim!

Courtyard Improvements

June 5, 2023

We all know instinctively that spending time outdoors is restorative and invigorating, and increases vitality. Many studies over the years have shown that getting out into nature has many benefits for the mind, body and soul for all ages, and especially in the elderly population, including boosting feelings of happiness and spirituality and energizing the body with fresh air.

We all enjoy feeling the sun on our face, a light breeze that brings the scents of flowers, and the lyrical sound of birds as they sing to each other. Our team strives every year to beautify the courtyard for all our residents. This is made possible through the generous financial support from our Resident and Family Council, various donors, and volunteers who make the courtyard a wonderful space for all to enjoy. Stay tuned for updates as we continue to add new improvements. (Photos updated: June 9, 2023)
