Annandale Village was created by families who saw a need and responded to it. Families have been the hallmark of Annandale Village and it continues today. Families are actively involved in their family member’s life through regular visits, phoning, emailing and skyping, letters and cards, trips home and family vacations. It’s like any family. Families also establish close bonds with Annandale staff and together work on behalf of their family member. Families participate in all decision-making about healthcare, service planning and anything else that impacts their family member’s life at the village. Annandale Village celebrates its families with a “Family Day” event each Fall, when families gather from around the country to celebrate their larger family…the Annandale Family!
