A Tribute to our Past: The GPA Legacy Rose
The cradled rose is an element from our original Gentle Persuasive Approaches logo. It represents our belief in a gentle, nurturing and respectful response to caring for older persons. Although our logo has evolved over time, our approach remains firmly rooted in person-centred care.
“Change your opinions, keep to your principles; change your leaves, keep intact your roots.”
