She is committed to advancing quality resident-centred care and creating an environment that demonstrates our core purpose and values of being respectful, committed, passionate, accountable and responsible. She's always striving to do the right thing and making an outstanding difference in the lives of others.

"Diane is a strong resident advocate and is passionate about resident care," - Jenn Brown and James Abraham Care Service Coordinators in describing Diane, "she projects an outstanding resident focus and approaches every challenge with vigor and enthusiasm."

The Nursing Leadership Award was established in 2010 to recognize someone who excels above and beyond our high expectations to deliver quality, resident-centred care. This person exhibits leadership in nursing and quality innovation; thus improving quality of life in our long term care homes. Diane exemplifies Nursing Leadership every day. Congratulations Diane Peach!
