Family Council 
According to the Ontario Family Council's Program a Family Council "is an organized, self-led, self-determining, democratic group composed of family and friends of the residents of Long-Term Care Homes". Their website provides the following further information: "A Staff Liaison from the Home is usually appointed to support and facilitate the Council. All Family Councils provide mutual support, empowerment and advocacy to the family and friends of the residents of Long-Term Care Homes. Although all Family Councils have this goal in common, each Council will be unique in meeting the needs of its members, the residents and the Home." The Glebe Centre has an active Family Council. Its mission is "To enhance the quality of life and quality of care for all residents by promoting an atmosphere of sensitive caring and support amongst staff, friends and family members of the residents of The Glebe Centre".
