The Gene Zwozdesky Centre at Norwood
After three years of active campaigning, the Stepping Up Norwood Campaign is looking to reach its target. Shy of 1.1 million, the Campaign Cabinet is proud to say they have raised 5.2 million to support the new Gene Zwozdesky Centre at Norwood, supporting an innovative approach to senior care. The new building will not only relieve pressures in Emergency Rooms but also in acute care hospitals where seniors are recovering from major incidents. This recovery is well suited for the care level that is now a major focus at the Norwood centre. In the new building, this established program will continue and grow to care for double the number they are caring for today. The larger picture of this innovative approach is that the financial costs associated with seniors in acute care waiting for placement will have relief and we will see the impact of the Right Care, Right Place, and Right Time. In addition, the philosophy of the Norwood programs is to help people get back to home if possible. With 7 days a week of rehab and a focus on possibilities, setting seniors up for success has seen a success rate of 85% back to home.
While the new building will also be home to many other specialized programs the Restorative Care program commented on above is one of the main highlights of the new building. CapitalCare has led the industry in senior and continuing care needs. Having the tagline of “Leaders in Care” is one they take seriously, and CapitalCare Foundation is supporting this model by putting the emphasis of these last fundraising components on what will be the NEW Teaching Research Training Centre at the Gene Zwozdesky Centre at Norwood.
The new building (GZC) will be home to a 3000’ classroom/lab/ research area. It will include:
- three simulation labs with virtual learning capacity,
- a leading-edge tech-supported classroom, and
- a teaching-research team office and conferencing area
Utilizing knowledge translation techniques and the science of learning, CapitalCare will be taking research to a new level by taking it off the page of research reports into action-oriented training. The goal of providing new and seasoned nurses, with the latest best practice will be a primary focus. In addition, CapitalCare is focused on providing dementia and senior care techniques to others in the healthcare system such as hospital staff, General Practice Doctors, medical students, and rehab professionals.
