Director of Long Term Care
Region of Peel
Cathy Granger is the current Director of Long Term Care for the Region of Peel. In this role, Cathy is responsible for overseeing five Long Term Care homes, ensuring that our residents receive the highest quality, person-centered care. Cathy’s career at the Region has spanned more than 20 years and includes a variety of positions ranging from a public health nurse, up to and including supporting the Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention Division in a Director role. Cathy’s strong ability to lead teams to achieve and exceed established objectives, build strong strategic relationships, and negotiate through difficult projects are all assets to the Long Term Care sector. At the present time, under Cathy’s leadership, the Region of Peel Long Term Care is embarking on several innovative projects to support the complex needs of her residents. These include the implementation of the Butterfly Dementia Care Model, founded by Dr. David Sheard which is designed to “de-institutionalize” the environment of Long Term Care homes; the hiring of 2 neuro-behavioral nurse practitioners to support residents with acute dementia and the comprehensive geriatric assessment project that we are discussing today.
