Councillor McCann Meeting Report (March 3, 2020)

Belvedere Heights Board of Management Monthly Meeting
On Wednesday, February 26, 2020 I attended the Belvedere Heights Board of Management Monthly Meeting.  Financial statements were presented.  We approved our budget for 2020.  We are moving forward with our application for additional beds.  This year Belvedere will be focusing on a Quality Improvement Plan to engineer teamwork and communication and to involve consistently assigned personal support workers in care plan meetings.  We are also investigating a new software system, Point Click Care, to enable us to render and generate the precise reporting required by the Ministry of Long-Term Care.  There is a reinstatement of the Belvedere Heights Newsletter with plenty of photos and interesting reading.  Ask the office about getting your copy.

Condolences to Beckett Family
I would like to take this opportunity to extend condolences to the family of Ron Beckett who passed away February 5, 2020 at age 75.  Ron was very well known in the community.  He did local radio advertising sales since the 1980's at what was then CFBQ AM 1340, CKLP FM 103.3 and then the Moose.  Prior to media sales he was in wholesale here in town at the former Gregory and Greek Wholesale Suppliers.  Through Kinsmen and various volunteer efforts Ron was a pillar of the community and he will indeed be missed.
