Oriana Trombetti stepping in as Interim Chair for Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa

Dear friends and supporters of Eldercare,

This announcement is to let you know that our Founder and Chair, Adam Nihmey is taking a temporary leave to focus more on his work and young family.

Since the founding of Eldercare in 2008, Adam has worked tirelessly to advance the organization’s mission to enhance the quality of life of seniors living in long-term care. His genuine, deep-seated desire to have an impact has been enormously beneficial to Ottawa’s long-term care community at large. And in his own unique way, Adam has quietly, determinedly and successfully moved the needle on this vital yet oft-ignored issue affecting some of our most vulnerable citizens.

We are pleased to share with you that Eldercare board member and long-time supporter, Oriana Trombetti will be filling Adam’s shoes as Interim Chair of the Board for a period of 2 years. In addition to being involved in the long-term care community, Oriana’s experience as a retired federal government Executive and General Counsel is also a valuable asset to Eldercare. She is highly-motivated, ethically-minded and results-driven.

Please be assured that this transition will be seamless, and all of the founding principles of Eldercare will remain, as will the current slate of board members, including Daniel Saikaley, Betty Hope-Gittens, Cathleen Cogan Bird and Scott Boassaly. As well, Adam will continue to be on the Board in a reduced capacity.

Thank you to all of you for your continued support of Eldercare. We look forward to making even more of an impact on the long-term care community in 2020!

Sincerely,

Board of Directors
Eldercare Foundation of Ottawa
