The Alzheimer Society of York Region has long established partnerships with the Region of York’s cognitively impaired day programs at the Maple Health Centre and Keswick Gardens and with York Central Hospital’s cognitively impaired day program. Through these successful valued partnerships, the Alzheimer Society of York Region has been able to expand access for clients requiring dementia specific day program services in York Region.
The Social Work Program and educational support are integral aspects of these successful 10-year partnerships. All clients are assessed by Alzheimer Society social workers prior to admission to the respective day programs and the family receives ongoing support and education. The caregiver will also continue to receive support after their family member has left the day program service. This care throughout the continuum of the disease is beneficial for the caregiver.
By maximizing expertise, sharing information and working collaboratively together agencies are better able to meet the needs of the program recipients. The Alzheimer Society of York in collaboration with our valued partners, the Region of York and York Central Hospital, has demonstrated that the integration of services is best practice for service delivery.
