Waterloo, Ontario, March 5, 2020 – peopleCare Communities Inc., a leader in the development and operation of world-class senior living residences, is thrilled to have been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the seventh consecutive year. This remarkable achievement earns peopleCare the prestigious Platinum level designation, the only senior living operator to have received this distinction.

As a Canadian-owned and family operated business, owners Brent and Heather Gingerich say they could not be prouder of the exceptional employees whose dedication to peopleCare’s vision is the foundation for a well-managed organization that continuously holds itself to the highest standards.

“Being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the seventh straight year demonstrates the commitment to leadership and excellence that have been a hallmark of our organization for over 50 years,” says Chairman and CEO Brent. “Through engaged employees, earning the trust of our residents and families, and being a positive force for change in our communities, we continue to raise the bar in changing the world of senior living.”

Along with having a well-thought out strategic plan and quality and performance measures, as a Best Managed Company peopleCare is recognized for investing in leadership and building an engaged workforce of employees with the skills and expertise to deliver high-quality and compassionate care.

“This award reflects the collaborative and supportive culture we have built at peopleCare, which truly brings out the best in our teams,” says Heather. “That’s so important to our success, because it empowers everyone to come to work each and every day with a focus on creating meaningful experiences for our residents, families, staff and partners.”

According to peopleCare President Megan Allen-Lamb, being a high-performing business with a platform of operational excellence gives peopleCare the latitude to think differently and do more to benefit its communities and the broader health system.

“As a leader in senior living, it’s a priority and a privilege to drive positive health system change,” says Megan. “We continuously look for ways to add value as an advocate and proving ground for promising practices, and by creating strategic partnerships that continuously improve our communities’ ability to meet the changing needs of local seniors.”
