Anchorage Pioneer Home Family Council
The Family Council is an informal organization of residents, family members, guardians and persons holding powers of attorney for residents. There are no dues or other obligations. The purposes of the Family Council are to:
- Provide support, encouragement and information to family members of all residents;
- Work to improve the quality of life, well being, and care of allresidents in conjunction with the Resident's Council and the Administration;
- Provide a forum where families can bring questions, suggestions andconcerns regarding the care, treatment, and well being of all residents;and
- Assist families, as requested, in addressing issues and concernsthrough appropriate channels for resolution.
The Family Council meets on the fourth Monday of the month, about eight months a year. In addition to discussions about upcoming events and issues affecting the Home, we usually have a guest speaker on a topic of interest to residents and family members (for example: living wills, powers of attorney, guardianship, conservatorship, hospice care, Alzheimer's Disease, etc.). The meetings are from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Tundra Lounge on the Fifth Floor. Meetings are open to friends of residents, staff, administration, and interested members of the community.
