IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO CARE.
In 2010, Ron Schlegel shared a dream. From Ron’s dream, Wisdom of the Elder was born. In its original format, the program enabled residents to share their experiences and wisdom in the Villages and the broader community through large events. The program has evolved as a way of life. We engage residents in Village life which fosters purpose, meaning and growth. It also creates opportunities in which residents can contribute to their community in meaningful ways.
“We gain knowledge from books; but knowledge only becomes wisdom with personal experience. One of the most hidden treasures in society is this accumulated wisdom. If we only stop long enough to listen to the stories of our residents we have much to gain from them” – Ron Schlegel
An experience we can share across our Villages that provides purpose and a common goal for all. To provide inspiration and motivation in the pursuit of a joyful life.
Canadian owned and operated, Schlegel Villages manages quality long-term care and retirement Villages across Ontario. It was 1953 when Wilfred Schlegel bought the family’s first nursing home and today our Villages benefit from a legacy of many years of direct experience co-owning, managing and operating Long-Term Care and Retirement Communities in Ontario.
