A Family Council is an organized, self-led, self-determining, democratic group composed of family and friends of residents of Long-Term Care homes. All Councils provide mutual support, empowerment, and advocacy for family and friends of Long-Term Care residents. Although all Councils have these goals in common, each will be unique in meeting the needs of its members, the residents, and the Long-Term Care home.
Working together to provide support, share experiences, and seek solutions
The Hyland Crest and Highland Wood Family Councils meet regularly to support one another and advocate for the benefit of residents in the homes.
For information on the date and time of the next meeting of each Council, contact the Life Enrichment Manager at 705-457-1392 ext. 3238 or pick-up a brochure at the home or in the HHHS Business Office in Haliburton.
