Our speaker this evening will be Jennifer Cornell. She is the Administrator of Grey Gables, the county-owned Long Term Care facility  in Markdale.  About two or three years ago Grey Gables was rated the top Long Term Care facility in Canada under Jennifer's guidance. 

Jennifer is a gifted speaker.  In her college days, she won the Ambassador Competition at the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto.


Jennifer's presentation will cover:

  • Myths and Facts in Long Term Care
  • Where to find information about long term care
  • Common misconceptions about long term care


Some background information on Jennifer:

Jennifer Cornell has enjoyed living in the Beaver Valley her entire life.  She has worked for 20 years in a variety of capacities including dietary, programs and recreation and for the past 15 years as an Administrator.  Jennifer graduated from George Brown College with a diploma in Activation/Gerontology and went on to complete further education through the Canadian Healthcare Association to gain long term care senior leader qualifications.  Jennifer was the Administrator at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury from 2004-2011 and has since moved on to enjoy that leadership role at Grey Gables since 2011.  She is a strong advocate for long term care as a leader in resident-focused care.  Jennifer loves using her leadership to spread the colour of this philosophy -  that each person living in long term care lives a life that colours it in a way that is meaningful to them.  Jennifer lives in the Town of the Blue Mountains with her husband Kevin and their two daughters Paige and Addie.
