The world of health care has been turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic. But for The Salvation Army’s Toronto Grace Health Centre, it has provided opportunities for innovation and creativity. Just as the pandemic was beginning, the centre launched a pilot project called the Remote Care Monitoring Program. Using a pendant and the power of technology, the program allows elderly and at-risk patients to receive the health care they need from the comfort of their own home.

In this episode of the podcast, Jake Tran, president and CEO of TGHC, explains the Remote Care Monitoring Program, and Donna White shares her own personal experience with it.
