About VON VON is the longest serving healthcare organization in Canada. We offer more than 75 different home care, personal support, and community services to enhance each client’s quality of life. We provide seniors with the supports needed to remain independent and in their own homes for as long as possible. In the Peterborough, Victoria and Haliburton Site we’ve been providing these services for over 75 years.

Core Values Respect Participation Responsiveness Courage

Philosophy VON, a registered charity, addresses the health needs of people in Canada through services provided by nurses, other health professionals, support service workers and volunteers. As a major provider of nursing and other services, in the home and community, VON believes that: • Individuals have primary responsibility for their own health. • The maintenance of health directly and positively affects the quality of their life. • The value and dignity of human life is respected. • Individuals have the right to accept or refuse health care, to obtain information about their health and health care, and to participate with health professionals in making decisions about and plans for the provision of their care. Individuals and families are supported so they can live, and meet death, in comfort and with dignity. • Access to comprehensive, compassionate, family and community centred health care is the right of all individuals regardless of their ability to pay. • Health care providers should work in partnership to develop, implement and evaluate services which respond to the expressed needs of individuals, families and communities in keeping with the principles of primary health care.

“I am so blessed… there is no other word to describe it… I am just so blessed” Doris Gardner is 92 years old and currently takes care of and lives with her eldest daughter Ann; “Ann is going to be 70 her next birthday… we are both just shuffling along together,” Doris chuckled as she spoke of herself and her family. Ann attends VON’s Adult Day Program twice a week; she absolutely loves it!” Doris raised her family in Norwood, living on a farm that her husband, Allan, managed. “No sons, but our girls [four] worked just like sons - drove tractors, baled hay, did whatever.” Ann lived on the farm for holidays but spent most of her time at the Smiths Falls Hospital School; “Ann was always happy to get home and always happy to get back to school. Smiths Falls was a good school for kids like Ann who had trouble learning”. Doris was teaching at that time at the Norwood Public School; “I taught the perfect grade… grade 2; they like to come to school, they like their teacher, they are accustomed to being in school… they are the perfect grade.” Ann moved into the same apartment building as Doris in 1993; she lived on the third floor. Doris provided support - “when Ann needed something, I would run down the stairs - 5 floors ya know!” Later, when Ann moved in with Doris, they decided to become vegetarians for health reasons “Ann is a diabetic and since moving in with me her need for medication has been significantly reduced. We call ourselves flexatarians - not strict

vegetarian; Ann will come home from the Adult Day Program and say ‘I had roast beef and potatoes for lunch.’ The Adult Day Program gives her the opportunity to eat outside the box - it’s very nice.” Ann’s sisters are all very good to her; “Ruth takes Ann and I to all of our appointments and takes Ann to her day program. I am so blessed by my family. Having the VON Adult Day program is added help for me. Ruth and I go grocery shopping or do errands - anything I can’t do myself. I don’t like to leave Ann alone for too long. ” Doris and Ann are a perfect example of how the VON Adult Day Programs provide valuable support to both the individual attending and their caregiver. Participants enjoy the therapeutic social and recreational activity of the day program while their caregivers get a much needed break to look after their own needs, knowing their loved ones are safe and well-cared for. Ann just loves the day program - “I like the staff, they do the cooking - I like meeting friends; the staff are all very helpful.” “My concern is for Ann… she is very aware of needing help and the staff are so good to her - the VON Adult Day Program is the perfect solution for us. Karen, her nurse, cuts Ann’s nails and keeps track of her health at the VON Centre. They are so compatible with Ann; she loves all the staff and knows all the other clients. In her stage of life right now, we don’t get out much. VON is our social life!”

Local VON Community Support Services Community support services are offered through a variety of professional and volunteer programs. VON, through the Peterborough, Victoria & Haliburton Site offers:

Adult Day Programs VON Adult Day Programs are designed to offer engagement and relaxation in a secure and home-like setting for older adults who may be experiencing physical, social or cognitive challenges. While participants enjoy a day away from home, their caregivers benefit from a day of respite to spend as they wish -- taking time to rejuvenate their energies, go to work or attend to those items that are on hold. It has been recognized that attending an Adult Day Program better supports clients to remain living in their own homes and delays admissions to Long Term Care. Caregivers feel supported as VON staff work closely with family to better meet each individual’s needs. Our clients attend the Adult Day Program to participate in a variety of planned activities, supported by trained staff such as Recreation Therapists, Activationists, PSWs and Volunteers. These activities are designed according to the individual interests and abilities of our clients and include: • Baking, crafts, hobbies • Cards and board games • Discussion Groups, current events, reminiscence opportunities • Daily Exercise sessions to maintain strength and mobility • Music and entertainment • Seasonal events and celebrations • Home Cooked noon meal

Currently VON operates eight Adult Day Programs across the region in communities such as Curve Lake, Lakefield, Peterborough (two locations), Havelock, Campbellford, Cobourg and Port Hope. Funding for this program is provided in part by the Central East Local Health Integration Network, community donations and a small daily client fee. The regular client fee for services is $19.00 per day which includes refreshments, a nourishing meal and all activities.  A fee subsidy is available where financial need is indicated.

Overnight Stay Program The VON Overnight Stay Program operates as an extension of the Woodland Adult Day Program located in the west end of Peterborough and is designed to help family caregivers get an overnight break from caregiving.

In-Home Respite Program The VON In-Home Respite Program is designed to provide meaningful leisure visits for clients living with cognitive or physical health conditions who experience difficulty in accessing leisure opportunities in their community and whose caregivers could benefit from regular period of respite. While our clients receive a weekly visit from a trained Respite Worker, their family caregiver is able to enjoy those hours each week as they wish -spending the time at home or out and about to catch up with friends, go to an appointment or run errands. After the Respite Service Supervisor meets both client and caregiver in their home, a care plan is developed detailing what the client would benefit from during the weekly In-Home Respite visits. These visits occur each week; same day, same time, same Respite Worker resulting in a success in building trust and friendship between client, caregiver and Respite Worker.

Keeping in mind the Care Plan, specific activities are implemented and may include: • Gentle exercise to maintain strength and mobility • Making lunch together • Reintroducing hobbies, games or music once enjoyed • Wonderful conversations
