Family Council at Nithview Home and Greenwood Court

A Family Council is a group of family members and friends of the residents of a long-term care home (LTC) who gather together for education and to improve the experiences of all people in long-term care. The purpose of the family council is to improve their loved one’s LTC experience by learning about resident care issues, fostering positive change in the LTC system, and helping other caregivers by offering a peer-support system.

Family Council is a self-led, self-determining, democratic group composed of the family members and friends of a long-term care home. Guidelines for the Family Council are established by the Family Councils of Ontario.
