Multi-cultural, modern, long-term care

Family Council

The Family Council of Ontario is an independent body recognized by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care as a proactive partner in the delivery of quality long-term care for residents.   It is made up of family members and friends of residents in a LTC.  The Family Council seeks to create a positive and supportive environment for family members where individual experiences are discussed and together they seek solutions to concerns. As a member of a Family Council, you can build on an informal support network and be an active participant in the lives of your loved ones.

The Villa Marconi Family Council is a member of the Champlain District Family Council which is a chapter of the Family Council of Ontario.  The Villa Marconi Family Council is an integral and active partner in the delivery of quality care for the residents. It provides assistance, information and advice to residents, family members of the residents and persons of importance to residents. The primary objective of the Family Council is to act as liaison to the provider of the long-term service and its representatives and the residents' families and/or their representatives.  Also, the members actively participate in lobbying provincial and federal governing bodies that help improve services for residents and seniors. This is another major component of the Family Council's mandate.

What is a Family Council?

Your Villa Marconi Family Council is represented by a group of family members and active friends of residents who meet the second Tuesday of every month at 7 PM.  Effective September 2016, we have introduced to our members that should any loved one descease while on the family council, that family council member is most welcome to continue their presence in whatever role they may have in the Family Council, providing they support the volunteer committee with assistance in their various activities.

We encourage all family members to take part in our meetings, to become a voice and to continue to support in quality care of our loved ones.

What is the Purpose of the Family Council?

The main purpose of the Villa Marconi Family Council is to improve the quality of life of our residents and to give families a voice in decisions that affect them and their loved ones in their Home.

Other objectives include to:

  • Provide a support network for families
  • Educate and inform
  • Discuss and action concerns
  • Maintain positive lines of communication between staff and families
  • Sponsor activities for residents
