Gardens and Horticulture

 

Here at Trinity Village you will find over 30 gardens full of flowers and activity.  From a burgeoning community vegetable garden, to a quiet shaded haven, opportunities abound for your involvement. In the morning you might sow a row of radish seed in your own garden plot.  In the afternoon you could join a group of friends and design a large flower planter for the porch.  In the Autumn you might find yourself pushing tulips and crocuses into bulb pans to be ready for blooming indoors in February or helping to decorate the front entranceways of the Studios or the Continuing Care Centre with a Fall display.  Whatever your garden interest, the Horticulture Manager will work with you toward achieving your goals.

Caring for the Human Spirit at Trinity Village…

 

At Trinity Village we serve people as they connect their spirituality with their experience of aging and changing abilities. We do this by living out the values of Trinity Village with respect, community and compassion.

 

Out of respect we accept and honor the sacredness of each human being entrusted to our care or who passes through our doors. Our inclusive community strives to provide holistic care, which includes spiritual care, for our residents and their families. With the development of a pastoral relationship borne out of compassion for our residents and their families, our Chaplain provides support for the following:

  • Exploring the meaning and purpose of life
  • Finding hope
  • Addressing grief and loss
  • Religious care
  • End of Life concerns and issues
  • Questions of faith and God

Many and varied opportunities exist to meet with the Chaplain. They range from one on one meetings with residents and/or family members to fellowship at Tuesday morning worship. Other opportunities include Coffee with the Chaplain (an informal discussion group over coffee and snacks), Floor Communion Services, Hymn Sings, Memorial Services, Prayer and Meditation with the Chaplain, and End of Life and Palliative Care.

 

Our Chaplain…. Rev’d Eleanor Caruana, LL.B., M.Div. can be contacted at ecaruana@trinityvillage.com or by telephone at 519-893-6320, ext. 231. For after hour needs or urgent requests staff members are able to have the Chaplain paged.

 

 

Trinity Village Care Centre Family Council

 

The Family Council at Trinity Village is a group of family members and friends of the Trinity residents who meet once monthly. One of the main objectives of the Council is to improve the quality of life of Residents.  The Council is a self-led autonomous group. This forum provides a communication link with Trinity staff giving families a voice in decisions which affect residents in the Home. The Family Council also provides many opportunities for education and information on the operation of Trinity Village and Long Term Care Homes in general.

 

The Council welcomes new members to come out to one of our Council meetings. The meetings are held the second Tuesday of the month from 6:15-8:00 pm in the Board Room located on the ground floor of Trinity Village Care Centre. For more information contact:
