Their creativity and commitment to our Mission to enhance the quality of life for the people we serve is clear. Evidence of this commitment was seen this past year in results of patient, client, resident and family satisfaction surveys. Our Complex Continuing Care, Specialized Geriatrics, Palliative Care, Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care programs ranked as Ontario high performers in many categories. As well, Providence Care achieved Accreditation with Exemplary Status, reflecting the high quality care and service across the organization. In 2012 our reach grew, as our community programs expanded to include the new Behavioural Supports Ontario mobile response teams.

To date, hundreds of individuals including patients and clients, staff and physicians have contributed their expertise and insight into the design process. We continue to work with Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Health, and are seeing great strides toward the realization of a new, public, state-of-the-art facility expected to be completed in Of course, none of this success is possible without the support of our health care partners, the community and especially those who donate to and volunteer with Providence Care and the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation.

Breaking new ground in community programs providence Care offers expanded services to meet client needs in the community Over the past few years, health services in Ontario have continued to move from hospital settings to care in the community. This allows many people to return home after a hospital stay and supporting greater autonomy and quality of life. Providence Care is a leader in developing and providing innovative support services in our community. New around-the-clock access is a first The Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) project is breaking new ground across the province and at Providence Care. As the designated provider of behavioural supports services in the South East LHIN, Providence Care has introduced community-based services for older people living with dementia and cognitive impairments. New mobile response teams now offer emergency service 24-hours a day, seven-days a week. This was the first around-the-clock access for BSO in Ontario, and good news for local long-term care homes, which are seeing an increase in the mental health needs of their residents. Now, when clients experience a crisis, long-term care staff can access expertise and support when they need it most. As an added benefit, visits to the hospital emergency department are reduced.

7 Providence Manor: Excellence in long-term care New volunteer program brings students into long-term care In 2011, six university students were on the volunteer roster at Providence Manor. A year and a half later, thanks to an intense recruitment campaign and the efforts of a Queen s University medical resident and Providence Care staff, there are over 40 students involved in activity programming at the long-term care home. Dr. Jonathan Witt had just completed a Family Practice Residency (through Queen s) at Providence Manor when he offered to help seek out new volunteers for the Home. s, events at student orientation and at university residences attracted attention and brought in recruits by the dozen. Today, students join residents of Providence Manor for card games, provide musical entertainment on special occasions and help residents get to and from the Manor s coffee shop, pub and Country Store. Planning for the future Providence Care will continue offering the highest quality of long-term care services in the years to come.

8 Partners on the patient journey Hospital programs focus on patient experience Providence Care adopted a PaJMa process in 2011, also known as Patient Journey Modeling Architecture. The process focuses on the patient journey from admission to discharge, and identifies areas for improvement. Providence Care is the first in the South East Local Health Integration Network to adopt the methodology across its hospital programs as part of its larger electronic Patient Record (epr) project. PaJMa models chart the patient journey and were completed for each clinical program at St. Mary s of the Lake Hospital and Mental Health Services in It is critical we understand a patient s footsteps through the system in order to help make sure the right information is available to the right health care professional at the right time, said Heather Frost, Clinical Analyst with Providence Care s epatient Record project. When we know how the information is flowing, we can identify any potential gaps, and make the experience better for the patient and the care team. The PaJMa methodology was developed by Dr. Carolyn MacGregor and Dr. Jennifer Percival from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology. It s been an honour and a privilege to work with Providence Care, said Dr. MacGregor. They are quickly becoming innovative leaders in health care transformation. When what you wear makes a difference Clinical staff from different disciplines came together at St. Mary s of the Lake Hospital to make it easier for patients in the Complex Continuing Care program to access adaptive clothing in Adaptive clothing is designed to enhance patient comfort, reduce pain, decrease dressing time and maintain patient dignity and level of self-care. The working group investigated information on websites and from clothing vendors that are now shared with patients and families at admission. Clients at Mental Health Services are finding Providence Care s new Snoezelen room beneficial. The controlled multi-sensory environment is a therapy designed to deliver stimuli to various senses through lighting, music, colour, scents, etc. The soothing environment provides a therapeutic quiet to clients of the Adult Treatment and Rehabilitation program.

Coming together to build Providence Care Hospital Patients, clients, staff and members of the public contribute to the design process and prepare for construction Over the last year, Providence Care brought together patients, clients, family members and over 200 frontline health care staff to determine what needs to be included in the design of the new hospital, which will replace Mental Health Services and St. Mary s of the Lake Hospital. I ve been here a long time, said Reginald Barker, a Providence Care client who has been involved in the design process. I know what would make things better, that is why I wanted to be involved.
