One of the main culture change aspirations for Schlegel Villages is Promote Resident Empowerment. David Kent, a resident at the long-term care home The Village of Erin Meadows in Mississauga, Ontario is a perfect living example of this aspiration. He is a retired educator who has been inspired by the opportunity to facilitate programs that connect students and elders through the power of observation and storytelling. David was one of the winners of the 2016 life time achievement award as presented by the Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA), at their Awards Gala which took place on November 24, 2016.
