McCormick Dementia Research is participating in a research study with Carleton University, who is looking to identify infection risks associated with the design of shared workspaces at long-term care homes and how to create safer working environments for staff to prevent the spread of infection during viral outbreaks.
Even though our McCormick Day Program is currently at a reduced capacity because of COVID-19, we are often asked about what a day in the program looks like for our clients. We thought we would provide a peek through our doors and describe our physical environment, our typical daily routines, and the types of person-centred activities we provide.
Recently, McCormick Home began administering rapid antigen test testing for its staff, essential caregivers, support workers, and anyone entering the home. This new practice marks a departure from the standard COVID-19 test that has been regularly conducted at the home.
