We are STEPPING UP for NORWOOD to raise 6.3 million in support of the new building that is beginning this spring. Alberta Health, Alberta Infrastructure, Alberta Health Services, and CapitalCare have teamed up to create a new innovative continuing care centre that sets a new standard for care delivery for our seniors in the community and in care settings.
The new building highlights are;
The new 7 story re-development project expansion at CapitalCare Norwood will help with the growing need in the Edmonton area for continuing care capacity including complex and post-acute care.
The new centre will have a huge positive impact on both acute care bed demands and continuing care systems in Edmonton, reducing emergency department visits, inpatient acute care services, and continuing care placements.
Restorative Care the newest program for seniors provides rehabilitative care after an acute incident with the intent to assist the resident in returning to home. Seniors desire to return home is the key element in this care method and with rehabilitation suited to their needs and the setting up of needed resources at the home environment we have seen huge success with this model of care. The Restorative Care program will be a large component of care at the new Norwood. Now that’s Stepping It Up!
