McCormick Care Group Announces Strategic Directions

As we continue toward our goal to be one of Canada’s leaders in dementia care by 2022, it is my sincere pleasure to present our strategic directions for the next three years.

We are particularly pleased that the plan reflects the input received from a number of in-depth and highly successful consultations with our stakeholders, and are grateful to all our participants for the thoughtful and constructive input that enabled us to ensure the relevance and intent of our work.

It is my privilege to release this information during our organization’s 145th year of serving the London community.  It is fitting that as we look back to honour our vibrant past, we set our next course for the future.

I extend to you my continued thanks for your feedback and support. Please feel free to let me know if you have any comments or questions.

Spousal Support: A Caregiver’s Perspective

While Eleanor McAllister* may be retired, her days aren’t filled with rest and relaxation. Ever since her husband Victor’s dementia diagnosis five years ago, she’s taken on a much more demanding role – the role of a caregiver.

Navigating the Winter Months

With the cooler temperatures upon us, we are faced with shorter days that are mostly spent indoors. Keeping energy levels up and maintaining a positive outlook will help you to not only survive, but thrive this winter.

When Caring Comes from a Youth

In the world of dementia care, we are finding increasing numbers of supports and education for adult caregivers – those who are perhaps spouses, adult children, or other extended family members. The one population of caregivers that often gets missed are youth. This particular group includes children and grandchildren.
