Gerry Morris is a retired architect from the firm, Morris Thuemen, Architects, serving the Ottawa Valley for over 30 years. During that period, Gerry and his firm's work included the functional programming and design of many facilities for seniors and people of special needs including medical and mental health facilities for National Defence, residences and offices for McCann House for Women, and the design of an Alzheimer’s unit and updates to facilities at Marianhill Long-Term Care.
Gerry's involvement with Carefor extends back to the initial conversion of the Pembroke Civic Hospital into the VON seniors' residence, which ultimately evolved to the Carefor Civic Complex in Pembroke. These and other similar projects required Gerry to remain up-to-date on the physical, spatial, psychological, social and budgetary needs of senior and special need clients, and on the regulatory requirements of the various Ministries having jurisdiction.
Gerry, studied architecture at Carleton University and attended St. Andrews College, Aurora.
Gerry joined the Pembroke Board of Directors in 2017 and also serves as a Director on the Carefor Corporate Board, representing Pembroke-Renfrew County.
