New Partnership With The Change Foundation Announced!

January 18, 2017

Today The Change Foundation is excited to announce four community partnerships poised to make positive impacts on the experience and interaction family caregivers have with Ontario's health care system.

Through Changing CARE, partnerships in London, Huron and Perth counties, Cornwall and Toronto will develop local supports, programs, and/or resources that address four thematic needs identified by caregivers and health providers: communication, assessment, recognition, and education.

“These four partnerships truly understand the needs of caregivers in Ontario today,” said Change Foundation President and CEO Cathy Fooks, “Each showed an astounding commitment and willingness to co-design new strategies, practices and initiatives with caregivers for the benefit of Ontarians.”

Each partnership was developed with caregivers in key design and decision-making roles, which will continue throughout the partnership. The partnerships are also intently community driven and engage a variety of organizations across health care settings and community services.

The partnerships moving ahead under Changing CARE bring important focus to different facets of the caregiver experience from a multitude of perspectives including different care settings, demographics, and geographic locations.

Changing CARE will consist of the following partnerships:

Connecting the Dots…Smoothing Transitions for Family Caregivers

Partner Organizations: Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance; One Care Home and Community Support Services; North Perth Family Health Team; STAR Family Health Team; South West Community Care Access Centre; Southwest Local Health Integration Network

Location: Huron County and Perth counties, Ont.

This partnership is focused on addressing the needs of family caregivers through defining and recognizing their role, and co-designing systems of care provision and communication that meet caregiver needs.

The ultimate goal is to improve the quality of care and experience for caregivers, patients and health care providers.

The partnership will include educational supports for caregivers and health care providers, as well as the development of caregiver assessment tools so that their needs can be identified and met early to avoid burnout. Technology will be developed and used to enable seamless communication and enhanced service coordination between caregivers and various care providers, which will assist in closing the gaps between transitions in different care environments.

Over the course of the partnership, health care providers, family caregivers, and administrators will work together to address Changing CARE's four interconnected themes: communication, assessment, recognition, and education.

These partner organizations have a long, successful history of collaboration to enhance the quality and coordination of care throughout Huron and Perth Counties. Family caregivers from each of the partner organizations will work alongside healthcare providers in every phase of Connecting the Dots, which will change the culture of care delivery through new dialogue, partnerships and improved interactions with caregivers in the community.
