Betty MacDonald

Deaf Community Worker

Northwood takes pride in our commitment to diversity. By creating a vibrant, inclusive space that invites meaningful relationships with our clients, each other and our greater community, we embrace our differences and celebrate those opportunities that allow those differences to flourish.

In her role as a Deaf Community Worker for Society of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Nova Scotians for the past 15 years, Betty MacDonald has provided assistance and support to Deaf and Deaf-Blind clients to ensure their needs are met. She now also provides that support to Northwood Deaf residents.

Betty’s contribution to Northwood has greatly enriched the lives of those who call Northwood home and helped promote a culture that values and celebrates diversity.
