Specific Actions / Commitments

  1. Concierge Service to assist older patients with way finding around the hospital campus
  2. Identifying several bathrooms on each level as 'Age Friendly' as some of our public bathrooms are quite small and not ideal for anyone with mobility issues
  3. Transformative Communication project / pilot under investigation to improve communication with older people with hearing impairment
