Celebrating Jenny Aherne's 20 years with Classic LifeCare

20 years with our family! What an honour it was to celebrate that milestone with Jenny Aherne.

Run for the Cure: Calgary 2012

The Calgary Canadian Breast Cancer CIBC Run for the Cure was an amazing gathering of people. The crowd arrived in the early morning sporting outrageous pink attire, ribbons, bows, tutus and spandex. Even the men came adored in frilly pink attire. It was a laugh but also an inspiration to see so much hope floating in the air.

Introducing the Westshore Seniors Network Group

To address the real need for a service that would educate and support seniors in the Westshore instead of them having to come into Victoria, the Westshore Seniors Networking Group has come together in the last year with the help of founder Nicole Donaldson.

Celebrating team milestones

We are SO lucky to have so many excellent people choose to stay with our family for so long. We're thrilled to acknowledge their career milestones this year:

Annabelle: Cancer won't win

She was a live-in caregiver for 16 years in Hong Kong before immigrating to Canada.
