Marion’s nursing career started more than 35 years ago in the Queen Alexandra‘s Royal Army Nursing Corps, where she served in London, England and Münster, Germany. It was after she came to Canada in 1990 that her passion for seniors’ care really started to blossom. She works every day to make sure everyone in her facility—or as she prefers to call it, community is treated as an individual. She is currently studying the Butterfly Care Model started by Dr. David Sheard of Dementia Care Matters.
