Friendly to Seniors Hospitals
Thanks to a New Horizon’s for Seniors Program Grant the Toronto Council on Aging has been able to take the Friendly to Seniors program to Toronto hospitals.
Seniors account two thirds of hospital days in Ontario.
This initiative has focused on helping hospitals better understand the issues of aging so they can better serve their senior patients.
Many hospitals have shown interest in becoming Friendly to Seniors including North York General, Toronto East General, Women’s College Hospitals and the Holland Orthopaedic and Arthritic Centre.
