Back to Long Term Care Information

The Social Worker is responsible for managing all aspects of the Social Work program at Sheridan Villa.

Recognising that changes created by long-term care placement or illness can be difficult, our skilled Social Worker is available to provide assistance in helping you adapt to these changes and to discuss any concerns you may have. The Social Worker is an active member of the care team.

Advocacy

Sheridan Villa’s Resident Council, Family Council and the Volunteer Executive Committees are empowered to participate in enhancing the quality of life for the entire Sheridan Villa community.

The Advocacy Centre for the Elderly is a community-based legal clinic for low income seniors.  It is managed by a volunteer board of directors, at least half of whom are seniors.  It is the first legal clinic in Canada to specialise in legal issues for seniors.  They can be reached at (416) 598-2656.

Family Council

Sheridan Villa has an active family council that meets regularly.  The Council is comprised of family and friends of Sheridan Villa residents who wish to become involved and advocate on behalf of their loved ones.

Resident Council

As residents of Sheridan Villa and on behalf of our Resident Council, we would like to welcome you to our home and extend an invitation for you to join us at our regular Council meetings.

Sheridan Villa Resident Council is comprised of an active group of residents who meet monthly to discuss areas of concern and to contribute to the operation of our home.  We play a role in the general management of the home by influencing decisions on subjects such as food, activities, outings and furniture to name a few.

The Council Members are appreciated and respected for the way we help residents and staff reinforce communication by working together to improve the quality of life.

Once settled into life at Sheridan Villa, we hope you will join us and become an active part of our group.  We look forward to seeing you!
