One year ago, on March 11, 2020, the world changed in ways we could barely comprehend when the World Health Organization declared a global pandemic in response to the spread of COVID-19.
It was clear in the days that followed that we needed to adjust to a new normal, whatever that meant in those early days.
Each day we learned more about COVID-19 and how to keep our patients and each other safe. As an organization we moved to secure masks and PPE, we also had to adapt to evolving information as well as new protocols and guidelines being developed and implemented by government on a daily basis.
People are at the centre of everything we do at Ontario Shores.
Our duty is to support and treat people living with mental illness while providing them with the tools to live a meaningful life in the community.
And how do we do that? By relying on people.
