Yee Hong featured in the Huffington Post

On September 8 2014 the Huffington Post posted an article which featured one of our culture change coalitions - Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric care. Keep up the great work Yee Hong!

"Unable to communicate what's wrong and losing all freedom of movement is the stuff of nightmares and the reason that Yee Hong was established to provide culturally appropriate care for people who were unable to communicate their care needs in English language nursing homes. The isolation and fear accelerated their deterioration. Yee Hong not only has staff who speak several language including Chinese but three different types of kitchens, including woks and tandoori ovens -- all evidence of the resident-centred care that is more than a catch phrase. Staffing and resources are adjusted, even within the existing funding envelopes, to maximize attention for those who need it. And while they haven't solved entirely the puzzle of dementia care, at least they have a psychiatrist on staff -- a rarity among nursing homes."
