Hello everyone,

The heat of the summer has lifted, a chill has settled in the air, and it is, once again, the time of year when we reflect on everything in our lives that we are thankful for.

As we come to the end of the second year of the pandemic, I am thankful that we have unimpeded access to a vaccine that has helped keep the number of COVID-19 infections to a minimum. We have been able to get out of our houses and back into stores and restaurants after what has felt like much longer than eighteen months of lockdowns and isolation. Most importantly, we have been able to reconnect with our neighbourhoods and the wonderful people in them. Thrive Group would not be where we are today without the unwavering support of our families, caregivers and community members. We may not be back to normal just yet, but we are well along the road to recovering.

I am also thankful for our staff here at Thrive Group. We have placed on the list of Best Workplaces in Ontario and the list of Best Workplaces in Healthcare across Canada. We earned the honor of these awards because of our incredible employees, people who work hard day and night to offer support and companionship to those who need it most. In times as trying as these, the simplest acts of kindness make all the difference, and it is this kindness that I see in our teams every day.

Finally, I am thankful for the opportunities that lie ahead. This has been a difficult time for all of us, but it has also invited us to learn and grow in ways that would have been unimaginable before. For all the sacrifices we have made and the losses we have endured, I truly believe we can rise from this stronger than ever.

Thank you for another amazing year. I wish you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
