Green Acres Foundation provides
affordable housing and quality services
responsive to the needs of clients.
From Your Manager,
Residency & Service Agreement
As you all know, in early April I took on some new responsibilities, managing Pemmican Lodge and also Black Rock Terrace. What makes this possible is that we have a strong team of hard working and dedicated employees at each building. In order to support each of our teams and our residents, we have hired assistant managers for each lodge.
Please join me in welcoming Clinton Kienzle to our Pemmican team, taking on the role of our first ever assistant manager at Pemmican Lodge. Clinton will spend the first few weeks learning the ins and outs of the administration side of the Green Acres Foundation operations. He will then join us later this month at the lodge. And finally, I think it is safe to say, “welcome to Spring”!

Let my soul smile through my heart
And my heart to smile through my eyes
That I am my scattered rich smiles to sad hearts
May is here and summer is near.
Mother's Day is May 13 and I would like to wish all
the mothers a Happy Mother's Day.
On May 21, Victoria Day, please stop by the
kitchen if you have some ideas or new recipes you
would like us to try.
Don't walk behind me, I may not lead
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
After such a long winter, we hope to have some
nice sunny weather for all of us to enjoy.
Let’s hope spring is finally here. I am sure we can all agree it has been a long winter.
I know I’m looking forward to the warm weather and getting in a little golf!
Just a reminder that Mother’s Day is coming. Thanks to all the Mothers!
Your friendly Maintenance Man,
Who’s your favourite movie mom? With Mother’s Day upon

Emergency Procedures - Loss of Cooling
In the event of mechanical breakdown resulting in a loss of cooling particularly in warmer weather,
procedures are in place to minimize the impact on residents. Residents can assist to keep the
building as cool as possible by keeping windows securely closed when the temperature outside is 25°
C or warmer. Keeping window coverings closed during daylight hours will help to keep the suite from
heating up from the sun.
Residents should dress lightly, turn off unnecessary lights, and may be moved to the coolest area of
the building, which may be the basement. Cool liquids will be provided to residents throughout the
In the event the situation cannot be resolved for a longer period of time, the Foundation may request
that residents contact a family member to stay with until the situation is resolved.
Please see your manager if you have any questions or concerns.
Resident and Family Councils
As you know, we have resident meetings quarterly. We hope you attend these meetings to give us
your comments on activities, housekeeping, meals, maintenance, and the overall service we provide
you. These meetings are also your opportunity to bring forward suggestions, requests, questions, or
concerns that you have not already spoken to the Manager about. Family members are always
welcome to attend these meetings.
Recently the provincial government created the Resident-Family Councils Act. It is a formal process
to create a council to address the topics that we currently talk about at our resident meetings. If you
would like to create a formal Resident and Family Council, you are welcome to do so. Information can
be found at www.alberta.ca/resident-family-councils.aspx.
