At Shannex, we recognize the importance of understanding our residents’ needs in order to continuously improve the quality of the care and services we provide. The well-being of residents is central to all that we do and we are committed to ensuring that major decisions are always informed by residents’ voices.

Guided by this commitment, we are currently seeking applications for the Resident and Family Advisory Committee.

How will committee members be selected?

The Resident and Family Engagement Steering Committee will review all applications and select Advisory Committee members at its discretion. The Steering Committee will seek to create an Advisory Committee that accurately represents the organization’s service lines and geographic location.

How long is an Advisory Committee member’s term?
