Every Long Term Care community aims for the
highest standards of quality and safety. We’re
proud to have recently been recognized for
those commitments from Accreditation Canada.
Following a rigorous evaluation, Accreditation
Canada gave Revera Long Term Care homes in
Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta, an Exemplary
standing, the highest possible. British
Columbia’s homes earned a Commendation,
the second highest level of recognition, and
Revera Long Term Care as a whole received an
Exemplary award for governance.
This recognition reflects the dedication across
Revera, as echoed by Dan Kaniuk, SVP, Long
Term Care. Dan salutes the wonderful regional
teams, residence management and frontline
employees who, together, focus on the well-
being of everyone living at our Long Term Care
homes.

Dreams are what life is made of,” says
Paralympic champion Paul Rosen. Knowing his
gold medal journey, Jenna Proctor, a PSW at
Revera’s ThorntonView in Oshawa, ON, invited
him to speak. “I thought his story would really
inspire our residents,” says Jenna. Paul came to
ThorntonView to share the inspirational story
of how he, despite overwhelming challenges,
reached his goals.
After losing his leg as a teen, he turned his
challenge into an opportunity, becoming
Canada’s sledge hockey goalie at the 2002,
2006
and 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.
Jenna always strives to bring inspiration to the
residents, and Jenna’s hope is that Paul’s story
of courage and determination will inspire many.
If Paul made at least one resident think ‘I can
do more,’ or ‘I am not limited by my situation,’
then I’ve done my job,” says
Jenna.
