We are so very proud to announce that Thrive Group organizations have been named on the 2021 list of Best Workplaces in Healthcare! This list includes healthcare organizations from all across Canada!

Thrive Group received this honour after a thorough and independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work®. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Place to Work® in October of 2020. We were also recently recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Ontario in 2021!

For all Thrive Group organizations to receive this honour is truly remarkable as we continue to navigate through a global pandemic where healthcare has experienced unprecedented challenges. We have been honoured with this recognition because of our amazing employees and their commitment to our clients and residents as well as to their teams, and the dedication and perseverance they bring to work everyday to help those who need it most. We are recognized as a Great Place to Work because we live our Thrive values and show passion for our work. We are so fortunate and proud to work with such an amazing team of people.

We would like to congratulate our Thrive Group employees and extend our genuine appreciation to them all, because it is our employees that make Thrive Group organizations such Great Places to Work!

Sincerely,

The Thrive Group Leadership Team

Hello,

As August is quickly coming to an end, I hope that everyone has had a chance to enjoy some time during these warm summer months. At our Thrive Group organizations we have continued to remain diligent through the summer as we watched low case numbers slowly creeping back up. As always, we have continued to review and implement the changing directives and precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, the province continues to be in a “recovery stage” of the pandemic, yet concern is growing about a fourth wave of COVID-19. Our teams are preparing for a potential fourth wave, yet we are remaining optimistic that vaccine rates will continue to increase in the province preventing further illness and strain on the health care system.

The incredible scientific successes with COVID-19 vaccines have provided us with the ability to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and those most vulnerable in our community. A successful vaccine campaign has been a game-changer for the long-term care and congregate care populations. Thrive Group continues to promote the vaccine with all residents, clients, staff, caregivers, students and volunteers.

Thrive Group implemented a vaccine policy (available on our website) earlier this summer. We continue to evaluate our policy as new information becomes available from the Ministry and our other partners in health care. At Thrive Group we have made COVID-19 immunization a condition of employment for all new staff, contractors and students. We closely monitor our vaccine rates and are so thankful so many of our staff, residents and clients have chosen to be vaccinated. Currently between 87% and 93% of the staff working in our assisted living, supportive housing and long-term care sites are immunized. This is something to celebrate! However, we do continue to strive for higher rates.

With the recent news regarding third doses of vaccines for high-risk individuals, we are already working on plans for our long-term care residents. More information will be coming directly from the homes regarding this as additional information becomes available. Thrive Group continues to advocate for all of our high risk clients living in other congregate settings aside from long-term care to have access to a third or “booster” dose when possible.

As always, we are keeping our website current with all updated information so please be sure to check the website frequently as additional modifications are expected as we progress through re-opening the province.

Take good care, be safe and enjoy the rest of the summer,
