Southern Health-Santé Sud Board of Directors December 2015 Meeting Highlights

Sacred Moment: Mr. Guy Gagnon shared thoughts about what is most precious in life: the true ‘Wonders of the World’. Encompassed by the body, the human spirit and the soul, the wonders that are our sense of touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell, as well as compassion, laughter, and love are often overlooked or taken for granted because they are simple and ordinary. As we consider the overall health of our residents, clients, family members and ourselves, it is these wonders, which money cannot buy, that are the real and the most precious in life.
