Exemplary Accreditation CelebrationOn Wednesday, September 23 2015, Extendicare Brampton celebrated the home’s outstanding accomplishment of achieving Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada.
On Wednesday, September 23 2015, Extendicare Brampton celebrated the home’s outstanding accomplishment of achieving Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada. In order to thank the family of staff for their hard work, food and refreshments were served. At the celebration, a special thank-you was made to the home’s administrator, Karen Ptacek, for her wonderful efforts and organization throughout the assessment period. In addition to thanking staff for their efforts in this incredible accomplishment, the home also thanked their partners, residents, and families.
Extendicare Brampton is one of the 34 Ontario long term care homes and two Ontario retirement living centres Accredited with Exemplary Standing. This is a remarkable accomplishment for all homes since it is the highest level of accreditation. Exemplary Standing is achieved when a home exceeds the requirements of Accreditation Canada and demonstrates excellence in quality improvement. The achievement of Exemplary Standing showcases both the home’s, as well Extendicare’s, commitment to continue to help people live better through the care and services provided.Elizabeth Maclagan, Communications & Web Specialist

J., an elderly lady, was living with dementia and, when she moved in, she made it clear she did not want to be here. She demonstrated extreme exit seeking behavior and it was a rough first couple of months. But through the co-ordinated efforts of the whole Care Team and the hard work of our Behaviour Supports Ontario specialist, J. has now settled in. Her responsive behviours have been greatly reduced and, although She still wanders a little, she doesn’t try to escape. Now J. seems much happier and enjoys the company of her new friends.

D., in his 40’s, has an acquired brain injury and is completely wheelchair bound. He speaks with difficulty, is prone to responsive behaviours and care for D. was very difficult. Through our Music and Memory Program and by working with family members, our Care Team learned of his love for Rock ‘n’ Roll. We were able to put together a playlist of his favourite songs. D. loves his music and when he is rockin’ on to his favourite tunes, he is transported to another place. His face is beaming and he is truly happy.
