Message from the Chief Executive Officer

Heidi Mannis, Chief Executive Officer

What welcoming communities we have at Maplewood House and MSA Manor! When you come here, you too will experience warmth and thoughtful attention. Our long history as a part of Abbotsford is evident by the many people who talk about how they have been touched by the care homes over the years.

We are so fortunate to have caring staff and volunteers, kind families and visitors, and engaged residents and clients, all of whom show how much they care in so many ways, every day. The people who live in the care homes and come to the day program share their stories, humour, ideas, and wisdom.

Everyone contributes to making MSA Manor and Maplewood House these special places. I am honoured to be in these remarkable communities. I look forward to being here every day, wondering how I will be gifted in what I see, hear, and do.

Join me in your own way as we all continue to make our communities comforting homes to live and visit, and great places to work.

Message from the President of the Board of Directors

Ann Douglas, President, Board of Directors

What a privilege it is to be a part of a Society that is really focused on upholding the established values. I get to work with people who inspire me to be better, who challenge the norm and ask the questions that need to be asked. I am thrilled to serve alongside the other Board Directors and the entire team at Maplewood Care Society.
We will continue to grow over the years and will ensure that we always value diversity, safety, individuality, relationships and respect.
