The Ford government is announcing an investment of more than $432,000 in a world respected Toronto hospital to help those struggling with cognitive impairment due to the pandemic.
Baycrest is a renowned research and teaching hospital with a focus on brain health and aging.
The funding will help it train 500 therapists to provide post-acute care and rehabilitation to as many as 5,000 Ontarians living with COVID-related cognitive impairment.
Baycrest is expanding and refining its Goal Management Training (GMT) program so therapists across Ontario can apply this approach in helping their patients improve cognitive functioning.
Baycrest President Dr. William Reichman says it helps advance research underway to help older adults ”live their best possible lives — during the pandemic and far beyond.”
