Who we are
The New Brunswick Continuing Care Safety Association (NBCCSA) is a not-for-profit association created by the New Brunswick Association of Nursing Homes (NBANH) and WorkSafeNB with the intent to not only service the unique needs of the nursing home sector, but to promote health and safety for the homecare, special care homes and acute care streams.
Often those who take care of our most vulnerable put their safety at risk when providing quality care by putting their residents’ and clients’ needs ahead of their own safety.
The NBCCSA is dedicated to providing cost-effective, custom built programs, solutions and tools to meet the needs of the sectors it serves while maintaining the high standards of care provided by its members.

Known for her ‘out of the box” thinking, she has a reputation for being a director with drive and passion.

I am a firm believer that the soul of an organization can be measured through the health and safety of its employees. It takes great leadership who recognize solutions to safety problems are generated quickly by those who work closes to the problem.
I am delighted to work for an organization charged with bringing about change and acting as a catalyst to improve safety culture and leadership throughout New Brunswick. It is my goal to have employers recognize, that their dedication to improve health and safety is not just about their organization, but about inspiring change for the better to an entire sector and in turn bring about a recognition at all levels that we are all charged with ensuring our co-workers and colleagues go home every day injury free.
