The team members across Region 3 at Sienna Senior Living are pledging to spread “positive gossip” about how our caregivers and service providers put Sienna’s values into action every single day. We know how challenging news stories about long-term care can spread, and we want to send a positive ripple through the airwaves about the kindness, compassion, competence and strength of the people we are privileged to work beside every day in this sector.

All money will go back to the residents • Did you hear that team members presented one of our family members with a cake on her birthday last week because of she helps out so much in the dining room • We have a housekeeping team member that will take one of our residents for a walk on her break at least 3 times per week • A PSW knowing that one of our residents was feeling down brought in a Star Trek book for him as he is a big Trekkie fan Harmony Hills Care Community: Did you know that……… • Visitors walked into Harmony Hills and asked to have a tour of the building and our DRP volunteered to give them a tour. The visitors were very appreciative and thankful for the service we provide at our care community. • A PSW was very instrumental in discovering a resident's pressure ulcer on their foot at an early stage before it worsens. She provided good foot care and attends to the resident's needs

Fountain view Did you hear that our RCC reached out to a professor from school and she found a group to come our care community to perform an Indigenous smudging ceremony for one of our residents who was palliative. It was held outside in the garden and the resident passed away the next day and the family were very grateful. Did you know that on September 1, we hired a new Nurse Practitioner, Rebecca George that is shared between Harmony Hills and Fountain View. What a great job she is doing and is passionate about long term care. Rockcliffe Did you know that one day last week, Mary N, Program Team Member, was in early, and went up on her own time to assist on the 3rd floor to assist staff to ensure residents got to the dining room on time for breakfast. Fieldstone Did you know that Lina Candelieri our Nurse in Charge, Heather Penny our Recreation Aid, Junior Peniston our ESM, Rodolfo Ramon our ADOC, and Katie Walsh-Langille our Social Worker (who organized it) were the pall bearers at the funeral of one of our residents who passed away and had no family. Lina gave a beautiful eulogy.
