Family Council        weblink   

The Family Council provides a mechanism by which family members, friends, next of kin or Power of Attorneys of our long term care residents may have an organized voice in the decisions affecting the resident’s rights, living conditions and lifestyle while living at Copernicus Lodge.

Family Council provides a forum for family members and friends of Copernicus Lodge’s Long Term Care residents to provide support, share experiences and seek solutions to common concerns.

The Family Council also exists to identify areas needed for improvement and to recommend strategies for advances regarding the care and services that are provided to the long term care residents.


Only Family members, friends, next of kin or power of attorneys of our residents of Copernicus Lodge Long Term Care Home can be members of the Family Council.
