Tuesday, January 31, 2023 Veterans Program spotlight: Physicians
Our physicians are passionate about providing the best medical care for residents and patients of the Veterans Program. This includes providing on-site weekly check-ins, monitoring of medications, performing procedures or injections, and assessments when sick. Their specialized expertise is also there for patients as they approach end of life. Our physicians are teaching the next generation of doctors, training medical students and family medicine residents, as well as leading clinical research projects to advance the field of medicine.
Friday, December 30, 2022 Happy Holidays
Another year has come and gone, and it was a busy one at the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre. In 2022, we had a visit from the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, our Veterans were honoured in an art exhibit called The Last Salute, the Toronto Maple Leafs stopped by, and we started the 100 Club to honour our 100-year-old+ Veterans. Here's to another great year ahead.
Monday, October 31, 2022 Veterans Program spotlight: Recreation Therapy
Recreation Therapy provides meaningful support to individuals as they strive to improve their lives through leisure. We value individuality and the freedom to choose leisure experiences according to personal interests. Together, we explore opportunities for personal growth and development, meeting and helping others, building self-confidence and a sense of belonging.
Thursday, September 29, 2022 Veterans Program spotlight: Creative Arts Therapies
Through engagement in music, art and horticulture, creative arts therapies have been shown to improve the well-being and quality of life of our residents – providing residents with opportunities to interact with fellow Veterans, help achieve physical and cognitive goals, and reduce isolation – particularly during the pandemic. Creative art therapies create a space for our residents to express themselves and explore their current abilities and interests.
Monday, August 15, 2022 Veterans Program spotlight: Volunteers
After the pandemic was declared in 2020, while families were unable to visit, volunteers created and wrote thousands of greeting cards for residents and patients, reminding them they were thought of and remembered.
