Program Description

They are the elders who teach us. The voices of our history. The link to our past. And it’s our responsibility to listen, nurture and provide a safe, caring environment so they can continue to be productive and inspiring. Managing a retirement residence requires a dynamic set of flexible skills, leadership and strong ethics. Fanshawe’s Retirement Residence Management program will propel you to the forefront of this ever-expanding field. By 2030, more than a quarter of Canadians will be over the age of 65, and the retirement they want is one you can help give them. You’ll enhance your critical thinking skills, your ability to deliver effective service and to market retirement living. You’ll also learn the latest motivational techniques in leadership. With your undergraduate degree or diploma under your belt, this intensive and unique program will cap off your skills with mentoring in the workplace. You’ll learn how to lead a team of professionals who have the same goal – to provide seniors with the opportunity to live independent and active lifestyles. The skills you’ll learn are in demand, and that demand is growing as the population ages. They’ve raised us. They’ve helped us. It’s time to give back.
