One of the very important differences at Sherbrooke is that care and service is Resident directed not just Resident centered. This means that Residents direct their own lives, and staff support them in their choices. A Resident-centered approach implies the care team makes decisions for the Residents that they believe are in the Residents’ best interests.
The Eden Alternative ® is a new way of thinking about Elder care, and has the potential to remake facilities and communities. It is a tool for improving the quality of life for people who live in long-term care homes, or are isolated in the community.
The Sherbrooke Village Model creates small homes for Residents that are residential in style, where they have control over how they spend their time, and continue to have meaning and purpose in their day to day lives.
Catch a movie, get involved in the community, brush up on your writing skills, learn to make wine, share treats at the farmers’ market, or connect at the computer centre; Sherbrooke Community Centre is alive with fun programming and activities.
Whether shopping at Tumbleweed Gift and Thrift Shop, participating in activities at the Oak Trees and Acorns Childcare Centre, creating art in the studio, or dining with good friends and family, our community offers many exciting opportunities.
