Family Council


Markhaven Family Council

The Markhaven Family Council is made up of families and friends of current and past residents. All families and friends of residents are considered to be members. The Council serves as a mutual support group and is dedicated to the promotion and improvement of the care, welfare, happiness and quality of life of all residents in Markhaven Home for Seniors.

We meet 4-5 times throughout the year, creating friendships and partnerships. Guest speakers present topics of interest for information and education, to help families better understand and support their loved ones.

The Council has held several successful fundraisers. The money raised is being used to benefit the residents. Saturday afternoon entertainment for residents and families is popular. The Council has been able to provide Staff Recognition for front-line staff.

The Markhaven Family Council promotes support and education for families and advocacy for residents, most of whom are unable to speak for themselves.
