Concerned Friends began in 1980 when a group of concerned citizens met to discuss the lack of care in long-term care homes. In 1982 we were incorporated as a registered charity in Ontario. We are volunteer-driven governed by a Board of Directors and funded solely by memberships and donations.
To advance the health and well-being and enrich the experiences of those living in long- term care homes across Ontario.
A system where individuals living in long-term care homes have access to health and support services that best meet their diverse needs; where every person has a voice that is heard, and rights that are respected. Those being served feel safe, cared for, and part of a vibrant inclusive community.
