  • “NovaCore has been using the services of Thrive Group since 2014 to support our organizational development and customer service needs. Recently, Thrive Group worked with our leadership team, staff, customers and stakeholders to develop our new Strategic Plan. Throughout the design process, Sandra and her team worked tirelessly to understand our business and successfully captured not only our Vision for the future, but the very essence of our organization in the final document. As we remain committed to building a customer-focused, engaged and inspired culture here at NovaCore, we will continue to look to the expertise of Thrive Group to guide us.”

    ~ Tony DiFruscio, President, NovaCore

  • “Thrive Group has been providing Idlewyld Manor with IT, HR and Financial services for over two years now and frankly I do not know what our organization would do without the help of these innovative, effective and caring people. Because they run a Long Term Care facility themselves, they truly understand what it is like to walk a mile in our shoes. They don’t just provide us with advice, or tell us how to solve our problems, but they come on site and integrate themselves into our culture and work along -side our staff to provide the guidance and support we need. I highly recommend the services of Thrive Group to anyone needing back office support.”

    ~ Maureen Goodram, Executive Director, Idlewyld

We serve over 600 clients with a staff of 285. Our wait list is over 800 people. Our roots stem from the Hamilton Cerebral Palsy Parent Council, but we have grown substantially over the past three decades to help individuals not only with cerebral palsy but with any disability, which may include muscular dystrophy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, developmental delay, brain injury, spina bifida, visual impairment, etc. Opening in Binbrook in 1978 with a congregate setting home for 35 adults with physical disablities, we expanded to include seven housing projects, some of which have short-term rental units. AbleLiving also provides outreach services in clients’ homes, including both attendant and homemaking services. Our new ReCharge programme offers in-home respite in the Mississauga / Halton regions which enables an individual's regular caregiver an opportunity to take a much needed break from their duties.
