June 17 – Letter from the Board of Directors


To our Emmanuel Home Family!

Greetings from the Board!

We thank the Lord for His continued provision and faithfulness. COVID-19 has presented a unique challenge for our organization as we balanced the ongoing Infection Prevention & Control measures given to us by AHS with the opening of the new North Wing, all while still maintaining a high level of service and programs for our residents. Throughout all the changes, we praise God for the protection from COVID-19 to date and trust, no matter what the future holds, that He is in control!
As the Board, our role is ensuring that the overall direction of the Society and management of its operations meets our collective mission ‘to offer a seniors a Christian environment that is safe and comfortable so they can live in dignity.’ The Board has met, via ZOOM, with our Executive Director on a regular basis and has been kept up to speed on deliberations and overall strategy. We commend the senior leadership team, and all staff, on their hard work and unwavering commitment to providing the best possible service for every resident that calls ‘Emmanuel Home’ home during this time of uncertainty surrounding the public health emergency that was declared but the Province in response to COVID-19.
We appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time. We know it is not easy to be separated from your children and grandchildren. Its these actions and your cooperation that allowed us to keep the threat of COVID out of your home.
We would like all residents, families, and Society members to rest assured that we continue to be 100% committed to the safety, well-being, and protection of Emmanuel Home.
We covet your prayers throughout this journey!
We look forward with anticipation to meet with you all at our Annual Meeting that has been re-scheduled for September. We pray that by then we can gather safely to praise God and give Him thanks for all His blessings even through these trying times.
May He surround you with His love!

Sincerely,
The Board of Directors
