The healthcare landscape faces unprecedented challenges, with critical shortages in roles like personal support workers, registered practical nurses, and registered nurses. The aging population amplifies this urgency, necessitating innovative, technology-driven education and training. 

That’s why the Ritz Gala is supporting the development of the Learning and Development Centre at McCormick Care Group. 

Introducing the Learning and Development Centre – Ontario’s pioneering dementia care and long-term care learning and development simulation lab – more than a facility; it's an investment in shaping future healthcare professionals and care partners. Beyond McCormick, this initiative aims to elevate dementia and long-term care education across Ontario, encompassing roles such as personal support workers, registered practical nurses, registered nurses, vital staff like housekeepers and dietary personnel, and extending beyond to include care partners in our community.

The Learning and Development Centre at McCormick Care Group stands as a symbol of transformative education in long-term care and community-based healthcare, heralding a new era of excellence. Your support is not merely an investment; it's a commitment to inspiring those at the heart of care provision.

Recognizing that the most effective way to elevate care is by nurturing and developing the skills of our healthcare professionals, your contribution becomes the catalyst for impactful change—creating a lasting legacy of compassionate, informed, and unparalleled care for our community.
