Editor’s Note

March 15, 2023


This season, our vibrant communities have been abuzz with the spirit of giving. Shirley Swaine (pictured above) from Parkland at the Lakes Bloom Vitality Salon, is just one example of the strong support our residents and team members provide to the community. Shirley generously collected donations for Feed Nova Scotia to support those in need over the holidays.

In the last edition, you learned about Shannex Cares, our new community program which is designed to deepen these important relationships. As part of this program, we recently asked our team members to nominate organizations doing great work to support seniors. As a result of their nominations and voting process, we were pleased to present three organizations with our first Great People Give donations. Read more about their work in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario on pages 11-12. Supporting organizations doing good work is one of the ways Shannex cares about our community, but we also believe it is our responsibility to share our knowledge and expertise with others in our sector. This past
fall, many of our Great People were honoured to be asked to present on their work and Share on Care. Learn more about their activities on page five, and you can also check out our Share on Care library
at Shannex.com/shareoncare.

In this issue you’ll also read about three of our Great People at Parkland Riverview who recently received Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee medals for their leadership (page 15) and we’re excited to provide an
update on two new communities about to welcome their first residents: Parkland Ajax and Cohen Hall (page. 19).

We have a lot to be grateful for and we hope this issue warms your heart as much as it did for us as we put it together.
