Local Businesses

Nisbet is fortunate to be part of the Toronto Danforth Community and the many business owners who operate here. People like Ted Halkusis and the wonderful staff at Pape Pharmacy (see picture above), the unofficial mayor of the Danforth, Saul Korman and Korry’s Clothiers to Gentlemen and Peter Hadjis owner of the Palace Restaurant, one of the original Greek restaurants in the area. Not only do they provide excellent goods and services but they are supportive of Nisbets ongoing work. There of course others and they include:

Associations and Networks

Nisbet is an active participant in a number of sector associations and networks. We believe that we are stronger when we work together with other health care providers.

Ontario Association of Non-Profit Homes and Services for Seniors

OANHSS as it is called lobbies government on behalf of not for profit long-term are homes, housing providers and home support agencies. They also provide educational opportunities, help with policies and with professional certification for administrators. Nisbet staff are active at both the regional and board level. Link

Solutions: east Toronto’s Health Collaborative

Solutions is a voluntary network that spans a broad cross-section of heath care providers in east Toronto. For over a decade they have worked at identifying gaps in service and ways to improve health care for resident of this neighborhood. Programs have included the award winning CREMS or Community Referrals by EMS which links frequent users of emergency services with local home support agencies. In addition, Solutions runs a semi-annual conference called Healthy Connections. Many of the topics have been ahead of the curve such as community hubs. The collaborative has also developed a cost effective learning management system along with a wider variety of eLearning modules for staff. (link)

Educational Institutions

Almost from its inception Nisbet has provided placement and work opportunities for students. We believe that such experiences are mutually beneficial. They provide students with work experience and for staff a chance to pass along their expertise.
