“The best way to predict the future is to invent it,” someone has said. When Sherbrooke Community Centre began in 1972, their Board – at that time representing Anglican, Roman Catholic and Mennonite churches – and leaders envisioned a bold and bright future for their long-term care home. It was a vision of how elder care could be, not how things typically were. It set Sherbrooke on the course it is still on today: to be the best place to live and the best place to work. In that order.
In 1986, the Board – which had added members from Residents, Veterans, the United and Presbyterian churches – determined that a Foundation should be established to raise funds for Sherbrooke. The Sherbrooke Foundation was born.
In 2006, Central Haven Special Care Home joined with Sherbrooke. Together we continue to learn, develop and adapt as we build a collaborative and resilient culture.
The Eden Alternative® provides the basis for how Sherbrooke and Central Haven seek each person’s well-being. A caring, inclusive and vibrant community enables all of us, regardless of age or ability, to experience well-being. As our homes strive to alleviate loneliness, helplessness and boredom we pursue full, abundant life!
The Sherbrooke Foundation is pleased to offer funding support for these life-affirming initiatives, thanks to our generous supporters.
The Sherbrooke Foundation provides funding support for full, abundant life at Sherbrooke and Central Haven*. We invite others to join the Sherbrooke mission by choosing generosity. Together we gather funds and then put them to work to enhance our homes for our Elders’ well-being.
