Baycrest Health Sciences Annual Report 2014-2015

Welcome to our Annual Report

For the first time, we are pleased to share some of Baycrest’s recent achievements with you in a digital format. Together we are rethinking brain health and aging – and we are delighted to show you the many ways in which we have done so over the past year.

A message from your Baycrest Chairs

Board ChairsOver the course of 2014-15, we continued our vital work and mission to transform the experience of aging through leading innovations in brain health, wellness promotion, and approaches to care that enrich the lives of older adults.

As you’ll see throughout this digital report, we have our eyes fixed on the future with investments in developing brain health innovations– such as the Virtual Brain and our Eye-Tracking technology. At the same time, we remain deeply committed to respecting and maintaining the core of what makes Baycrest unique:  the specialized care we provide to patients and their families that cannot be found elsewhere.  

In this report you will read about Baycrest’s donor-funded therapeutic care recreation programs, including art-therapy, creative writing, our museum-on-wheels, musical performers and storytellers who spark precious memories, informative lectures and pet therapy. And of course, about our unwavering commitment to the founding Jewish principles of repairing the world and preserving an environment that respects the needs of our community members.

We are proud to highlight the ways in which donor support of the Baycrest Foundation has resulted in successful fundraising over the last year, and the impact on life at Baycrest and beyond.

And we celebrate the news of Baycrest becoming home to the Canadian Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CC-ABHI), a new national hub and network bringing together science, academic, healthcare and industry partners dedicated to the development, validation, commercialization, dissemination and adoption of brain health and seniors care products and services. This is an exciting and important juncture in Baycrest’s history.

We encourage you to read through this report for more understanding of how your support of Baycrest is helping us to rethink aging and brain health.

Thank you,
