“Act as if what you do makes a difference…It does!” ~ William James
The Volunteer Program "Simcoe Strong" has been very successful thus far. Our Homes are working diligently with both our community partners as well as the Museum to discuss ways to streamline the program in order to provide effective service to our current and prospect volunteers. Further to this, new Volunteer referral cards are being added to the program. Any new volunteer referred to by a current volunteer includes them into monthly giveaways.
Welcome to our new volunteers at Sunset Manor: Allison Groff, Rachel Clute, Ashley Stuart, Cameron Nobes, Anthony Gagliardi, Austin Moore, Johnny Mitchell.
Welcome to our team!
“Theme Days" are held throughout the year for a chance to win a prize. Stay tuned for posters displayed around Sunset Manor for more details!

Our Volunteer Dedication
Our dedicated Simcoe Strong volunteer Jan Sparling has implemented a phenomenal new Intergenerational Program – Sewing for Ages.
This new exciting program has been celebrated and showcased by our local press,
Collingwood Today, with a feature piece published June 13th. Two reporters from
Collingwood Today visited Sunset Manor and experienced the joy and gratification this program offers. In this program, young girls are being taught the skill of sewing. Their product of fidget blankets are given to residents at Sunset Manor. This product is quite valuable to the residents at Sunset Manor as fidget are quite therapeutic and beneficial to individuals with Dementia.
