V. Aurel Muego - Aurel looks after the “business” side of the home and the overall physical facilities. He also liaises with the various regulatory bodies having oversight of the care facilities. Aurel has a background in economics where he previously taught at university. His previous experience includes financial and estate planning gained from several years with a major financial services company.

Father Kevin Wiseman (deceased) -- The late Fr. Kevin was a priest on Vancouver Island who served the diocese for more than 30 years. He passed away in 2001, nine years after co-founding Dwelling Place. He left a legacy of compassionate and dignified service that is alive today in the Care Team.
