Family Council

The Family Council comprises family members (and alternate decision-makers) of current and former residents of Villa Cathay. We advocate for the residents. Led by a democratically elected Executive Committee, we work collaboratively with staff to continuously improve the care of our loved ones.

We welcome input from all families. We encourage families to bring all ideas forward on how we can continue to keep our loved ones safe and comfortable.

The Family Council meets on a bi-monthly basis – all family members are welcome to attend at any time. Our meetings and events are a great opportunity to meet other family members. We would be delighted for you to join us.


The Family Council is supplementing Villa Cathay’s fundraising effort. In addition to supporting the Rejuvenation and Expansion Project, our campaign will raise funds to provide additional activities and services to enhance the quality of life for the seniors during their stay at Villa Cathay.

Our Villa Cathay community BBQ on September 08 – A tremendous success thanks to our volunteers on the Family Council
