President’s Message

May 8, 2024

Hello everyone,

I’m pleased to present you with the Spring issue of Connections, which coincides with Great People Month, a celebration to honour the dedication, hard work, andpassion of our Great People. Over the next few weeks, there will be many activities and events, culminating in the Excellence Awards where we will recognize exceptional service and innovation across a number of categories.

I am proud of the incredible individuals who make our communities special places to live and work. They are the heart and soul of our organization. Their commitment to our Guiding Principles—compassion, honesty, professionalism, and safety—is what sets Shannex apart with residents and trusted partners everywhere we operate.

Our Great People have helped us achieve some significant milestones already this year. We’ve proudly opened the doors to new communities in Fredericton, Eskasoni and Moncton and these homes have already become vibrant places where residents and their loved ones immediately feel at home.

Recently, we embarked on an exciting partnership with Nova Scotia Health to bring a new model of care to the province. Transitional Care represents a real improvement for the future of healthcare. It will ensure patients, who would otherwise wait in hospital, receive the right supports as they transition to a place they call home.

As our organization evolves, the work of our Great People is more important than ever, and I am confident that we have the right teams in place to meet the growing need for quality service and care for seniors in our communities.

I hope this edition of Connections warms your heart and entertains you.

Happy Spring!

Jason President

Four times per year, president Jason Shannon and members of our leadership team host a President’s Town Hall to share organizational updates and highlight the achievements of our Great People. The February Town Hall was dedicated to team members in our Enhanced Care communities. Jason hosted the meeting from London Hall, one of our new licensed long term care communities. He was joined by continuing care assistant, Zeel Patel who shared some of the reasons she loves her work.
