Shannex Cares, our New Community Program

October 19, 2022

We care about community. It’s what started us on this journey when our founder purchased Shannex’s first nursing home in Sydney, Cape Breton almost 35 years ago. Since then, we’ve seen how strong community connections result in fulfilling experiences for residents, their families and

team members.

Today, we’re proud to share our new Shannex Cares community program designed to improve the lives of seniors through visible, meaningful opportunities for them to be seen, heard and valued for their wisdom and talents while addressing real issues facing seniors today.

Inspired by our Great People, we see ourselves as “elder allies” and we’re confident this new program will help us continue to deliver on our vision of leading the way to better living. As one of our trusted partners, who shares our passion how our Shannex Cares is here to provide support.

We empower great people.

Our new Community Spirit Fund recognizes the work of our Great People and gives back to the community. Team members, organizations and individuals can apply for a Community Spirit Grant.

We are leaders.

As a leader in our sector, we are pleased to offer a new Share on Care library with easy access to information and tools to help sector partners and others enhance the quality of life and health of all seniors.

We are a trusted partner.

To help us positively affect seniors’ issues within our focus areas of seniors’ wellness, active living and social connections, we partner with like-minded community organizations and post-secondary institutions.

If you are an elder ally, a community organization or a partner improving the lives of seniors, we want to hear from you. Visit to learn more.
