The Past, Present and Fu­ture of Brain Health

North York Post - - Food -

The Bay­crest Foun­da­tion sup­ports pro­grams and ser­vices that pro­mote ex­cel­lence in care, re­search, in­no­va­tion and ed­u­ca­tion in aging and brain health. As the char­i­ta­ble arm of Bay­crest Health Sci­ences, the Foun­da­tion pro­vides cru­cial fund­ing for ar­eas such as: on­go­ing pro­grams and a spec­trum of care ser­vices for our com­mu­nity; in­no­va­tive re­search into cog­ni­tion, de­men­tia and brain health; and lo­cal, na­tional, and in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion that sup­ports healthy liv­ing for a grow­ing pop­u­la­tion.

Bay­crest is a world-leader in the field of brain health and aging, and each day more than 1,200 peo­ple visit the cam­pus for our day clin­ics, out­pa­tient ser­vices, Rot­man Re­search In­sti­tute, arts and cul­ture pro­grams and the many other ac­tiv­i­ties that take place across our cam­pus. Sim­i­larly, 1,100 res­i­dents call Bay­crest home ev­ery night.

Founded as a se­niors’ home in 1918, nearly 100 years later Bay­crest is so much more. Bay­crest Health Sci­ences is now a renowned cen­tre of ex­cel­lence and lead­ing re­source on brain health, sought-af­ter by lo­cal, na­tional and in­ter­na­tional gov­ern­ments and agen­cies look­ing to tap into its ex­per­tise in the field of brain health and aging.

The Bay­crest Foun­da­tion main­tains long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ships with, and stew­ard­ship of, com­mu­nity phi­lan­thropists who have helped build up the cam­pus, and ev­ery­one and ev­ery­thing in it, to truly be­come a leader in the field.

A cen­tury of work­ing to­gether with vi­sion­ary donors has al­lowed Bay­crest to con­tinue to evolve in or­der to pro­vide ex­cel­lence in care for an aging com­mu­nity to­day; and to en­sure it con­tin­ues to pi­o­neer care prac­tices in brain health and dis­cover new ways to de­lay the on­set of de­men­tia.

Work­ing hand-in-hand with staff, the Bay­crest Foun­da­tion’s donors con­tinue to build a legacy of care, in­no­va­tion, ed­u­ca­tion and re­search in brain health and aging that is sec­ond-to-none.

As we mark our cen­ten­nial in 2018, we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing this im­por­tant jour­ney with the com­mu­nity over the next 100 years… and be­yond.
