Queensway Carleton Hospital receives $1M gift for elder care

What an amazing gift!
“This unit is designed to take our frail, elderly patients, and treat them in a very holistic manner with the intention of getting them recovered … and back to the living environment from which they came,” said Melanie Adams, president and CEO of the Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation.
A total of 30 of the 34 rooms in the future unit will be private, and contain floor-to-ceiling windows. A communal dining room will also be contained within the unit – a way of encouraging mobility and socialization amongst patients for better outcomes.
