Thank you!

Thank you to our Members for having joined us at our AGM held on November 12 in Edmonton. We would also like to thank special guest speaker, the Honourable Jeff Johnson, Minister of Seniors, pictured below with ACCA CEO Tammy Leach and ACCA Chair John Pray, who spoke of a Vision for Continuing Care in Alberta

 

We were also joined by guests Isabel Henderson and Nancy Guebert of the Alberta Health Services Continuing Care Resolution Team whose update caused much thought-provoking discussion. We know there needs to be immediate change and enhanced support of the continuing care industry in Alberta; but the ladies did provide a quote regarding the good work performed by operators that sometimes goes overlooked. "You can't judge the care by the number of chandeliers."
