Any and all residents at the Villa have the right to be, and are encouraged to be, members of the Residents’ Council. Relatives of residents and other resource personnel attend only at the invitation of the Council.
The Villa has a Residents’ Council. This council, which is made up of residents living at the Villa, meets monthly and is assisted by the on-site Chaplain. Relatives of residents and other resource personnel attend only at the invitation of the Council.
The purpose of the Residents’ Council is to:
- Provide a forum for the residents to have input and to advocate on their collective behalf concerning the operations of the Villa;
- Provide the residents with a voice in decisions that affect them and their quality of life at the Villa;
- Establish two-way communication between the residents and the Villa staff, and to establish a formal mechanism whereby Residents’ Council concerns are communicated to administration for intervention and resolution; and
- Promote and encourage activities directed at the provision of quality care and quality of life for residents.
Residents with specific individual concerns should speak with the Villa staff and/or administration directly.
The executive of the Residents’ Council is elected annually by Council participants. Minutes from the most recent meeting are posted publicly in the Town Square and Open Forums are held when necessary to solicit further input from residents.
For more information about Residents’ Council, please contact the on-site Chaplain.
