Innovating care for the elderly

Within a day, WCH’s mobile COVID-19 assessment team, was at Kensington swabbing every resident and staff member.

Diversity and Inclusion at Kensington Health

This summer, while we were fighting to keep COVID-19 at bay, we were starkly reminded of an ever-present fight our colleagues of colour, specifically our Black and Indigenous colleagues, face every day.

Enhancing COVID-19 Screening

Screening plays a big part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Kensington Health has had a team of screeners working in the lobby of the building at 340 College Street since April. Hundreds of people come through Kensington’s doors on a daily basis, so screening is no easy feat. When RKS Medical approached us to pilot an automated screening machine, we said yes.

Kensington Hike: 10 years, nearly 1000 residents

Since then, nearly 1400 people have hiked over the last ten years, and the Hike has become a chance to both raise funds for the Hospice and raise awareness for end-of-life care. It’s also an important chance for the families of the more than 1000 people who have died at the hospice to reconnect.

Thank you, Donna, for more than 15 years of service

Donna Punch, VP of Ambulatory Services, retired after a rewarding nursing career that spans over 49 years.

Start From Gratitude

Gratitude doesn’t seem to come as easily as griping does, but research shows that people who regularly take time to notice things they are grateful for enjoy better relationships, show greater resolve toward achieving goals and are more compassionate. It’s easy to spread and good to build.

Interview: Why Pride matters

Celebrating Pride is an important way that we stand with our LGBTQIA2S+ community members, and it reminds us of the continuous work we need to do to create inclusive spaces. We sat down with Wayne Peterson, Board Member of the Kensington Health Foundation, to discuss why Pride matters to him.

Out and proud at Kensington Health

At Kensington Health, Pride is a chance to celebrate our LGBTQIA2S+ community members, and to acknowledge the need for accepting and safe care, especially in our long-term care home.

Shirley's passion for nursing

After a long nursing career that spans more than 51 years, Shirley Gardner, a Registered Nurse, retired from the Kensington Eye Institute in June.

Don't neglect your eye health

The fear of catching COVID-19 is still very real, and some patients are understandably hesitant to return to a medical clinic for care.
