People

11 communities. 2 provinces. One Countless stories.

We have beautiful buildings, quality programs, fantastic resources and good intentions – but none of it comes together without a great team.    The success of each of our communities comes down to the quality of teams.   Of course, we have a great team in the support office as well, who are focused on providing resources to our teammates at the community level, where it matters most.  Finally, as a part of the Extendicare family brands, Esprit is on an amazing team working across Canada, day and night, helping Canadians live better.

My books are a meagre attempt to describe and thank some of these people and to write stories that both young and old can enjoy...
