The Board of Wellington Cares is a volunteer board. The board was selected on the premise of having broad-based participation of residents with diverse background that will allow for sustainable, proactive growth of the organization. They believe that long-term success is determined not only by the effectiveness of their management, but also by the persistent vision of leaders. Under their guidance, Wellington Cares embraces new approaches to supportive services for persons 65 and older to remain as independent as possible in their home.
