Mind, Body & Spirit

We strive to support individuals and their families in their efforts to live well by providing diversified coordinated care, guidance and education that encompasses body, mind and spirit. We promote compassion, collaboration and communication because care is "better together." 

"My mission is for people’s experiences of care to become positive and humanizing. We are all connected in our humanity. What we all do matters. We must practice with purpose."  

Dr. Maria Patriquin MD CCFP Founder of Living Well 

Humanizing health care through compassion, communication and collaboration"
