Meredith Thompson – Director of Programs and Volunteer Services
Tel: 416 469 1105 X 1144 Email:
“I have been working in activation for over 13 years and I enjoy serving the residents and my goal is to enrich their quality of life by implementing progressive new ideas to help residents improve and maintain their hobbies and interests. I enjoy being a part of a team that puts a smile on residents faces and makes them feel at home. In my teenage years, I realized my passion for the elderly when I helped to care for my grandmother, then later I was a part of a high school co-op placement at a local long term care home that I really enjoyed. I am passionate about making the residents home away from home, a place of joy and laughter.”

Shawn Van De Visch – Pastor
Tel: 416-469-1105 extension 1148 Email:
“Working as a Chaplain to seniors for over 12 years, 5 of those years at Nisbet Lodge in Long Term Care has deepened my understanding of faith in the face of adversity. As part of the staff team, we hear stories of lives in transition and get to journey together with our seniors and their families during the final leg of life. As a Chaplain in a Christian care home, I consider it a gift to be able to live out Jesus’ love to those I meet, extending a loving hand, lending a listening ear, and creating an environment that is based on an inherent dignity and worth of everyone who enters here.”
