In this edition of Captured Caring, see our Talent Acquisition team in action during their visit to UofT, the ‘Spring Steppers’ from Hennick Bridgepoint taking on the step challenge, and our commitment to learning highlighted during MAUVE Education Day, and Health and Safety Day.

“Our talent acquisition team, collaborating with Celine Nathoo, Senior Manager of Rehabilitation and Clinical Nutrition, recently held productive discussions with second year students graduating from the University of Toronto. The strong turnout at this event has us excited about the prospect of welcoming these talented students to the Sinai Health team for physiotherapist and occupational therapist roles.”

“The Maximizing Aging Using Volunteer Engagement (MAUVE) program volunteers attended the Gentle Persuasive Approaches to Dementia Care course at Mount Sinai Hospital. This course provided them with a better understanding of responsive behaviours exhibited by patients and taught them various communication strategies for interacting with individuals with dementia. The course enhanced the volunteers’ knowledge, equipping them to apply these skills in the clinical setting.

Led by Mavis and Karen on May 1, 2024, the MAUVE Education Day was attended by volunteers from Mount Sinai’s Emergency Department as well as inpatient units.”
