Yee Hong Culture Change Coalition

Yee Hong Culture Change Coalitions during a meeting.

Residents and Staff at Yee Hong work together at a Culture Change Coalition meeting.

The Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care Markham is a long-term care home which serves nearly 200 residents. Rooted in a deep reverence for older adults, the centre provides care for older adults of both Chinese and South Asian descent. Staff at Yee Hong emphasize culturally and linguistically appropriate care that supports healthy, independent, dignified living.

The Yee Hong Culture Change Coaliton includes:

  • front line staff members, including Personal Support Workers;
  • nurses
  • physiotherapists
  • social workers
  • residents
  • family partners in care
  • management
  • researchers from McMaster University and the University of Waterloo

The staff, family, and residents at Yee Hong have taught the PiDC team that collaboration cannot occur without celebration. We make an effort to laugh, explore creativity, and celebrate successes at every meeting. Perhaps most importantly, we take time during every meeting to share a meal together (provided by the talented Yee Hong food services staff).

The Yee Hong Culture Change Coalition (CCC) is currently working through the Delivery phase of the Appreciative Inquiry.

If you live or work in the Markham region, we welcome you to join our Culture Change Coalition. For more information, contact Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care Markham.
