Our Staff

The Dawson Heights Team

Our employees come from diverse backgrounds, and all bring different skills and experience to their work. Everyone is committed to being part of our team and everyone takes a pride in delivering excellence in all that they do.

The Management team works together to make sure that our mission is fulfilled, that operations flow smoothly, and that standards are high.

Our Recreation department offers residents the chance to engage in a wide range of physical, cognitive, social, and spiritual activities, events, and trips. Under the guidance of a Recreation Therapist, this department maintains a consistent high quality of programming and the level of resident participation is high. 

The Housekeeping team ensures that residents’ apartments are maintained to a high standard of cleanliness. They are also critical partners in helping to maintain the high standard of maintenance across campus.

Our Food services team delivers quality, home-cooked meals and a menu that residents enjoy. Most of the menu items are made from scratch, with little processed foods allowed in the kitchen. The Chef meets regularly with a food services consultation team made up of residents. Our chefs are Red Seal certified and a minimum of Food Safe Level One qualification is required for all food service staff.

The Administration team works to ensure that daily operations, finances, waiting lists and office/on-site consumables are in good order. They are the first point of contact with the organization and manage the reception area, telephones, enquiries and give tours for prospective residents and their families. Because they are based at reception, the team members often find that they are the hub of activity at Dawson Heights and they always know what’s going on.

The Environmental Services team ensures that the buildings and grounds are in good order and that we fulfil our mission of having a physically safe environment for everyone in our community. This team manages relationships with many regular contractors and servicers who take care of various aspects of the Dawson Heights campus.

Board of Directors

As a non-profit organization, we are governed by a volunteer board of directors appointed outside of our daily operations who oversee the strategic direction and financial planning of Dawson Heights. We are very fortunate to have talented, experienced and engaged board members who roll their sleeves up and take a pride in the work of Dawson Heights. From time to time, you will see board members around and you should feel comfortable introducing yourself and letting them know what you do and about your experience at Dawson Heights.
