Admin History/Bio
Baycrest’s Day Care program was launched in June 1959 to help meet the needs of applicants on the waiting list for admittance to the Jewish Home for the Aged. The first of its kind in Canada, the program was designed for seniors who were able to go to the Home during the day and return to their own home in the evening. Dora Till served as the program’s first Chairman and the Women’s Auxiliary assisted with programming and subsidized the cost.
Residents in the program paid a daily fee, which was subsidized for those who could not afford the full cost, and had full access to all of the facilities at the Home, including the dining room and synagogue. Transportation was provided for those unable to make the trip on their own, and while at the Home residents were provided with meals tailored to suit their nutritional needs, medical attention, occupational therapy, and recreational and social activities, such as outings, arts and crafts and discussion groups. Residents attended the program between two and five days a week.
Baycrest continues to run its Day Care program, but places residents into one of three clubs according to their cognitive ability: the Parkland Club (cognitively well), Oceanside Club (mild cognitive impairment), and the Samuel Lunenfeld Mountainview Club (moderate to severe cognitive impairment).
Scope and Content
File consists of textual records documenting the Women Auxiliary's involvement in Baycrest's Day Care program. Included are reports, program notices, event invitations, a survey, brochures, Day Care Data newsletters, and statistics.

Admin History/Bio
Baycrest’s Day Care program was launched in June 1959 to help meet the needs of applicants on the long waiting list for admittance to the Jewish Home for the Aged. The first of its kind in Canada, the program was designed for seniors who were able to go to the Home during the day and return to their own home in the evening. Dora Till served as the program’s first Chairman and the Women’s Auxiliary assisted with programming and subsidized the cost.
Residents in the program paid a daily fee, which was subsidized for those who could not afford the full cost, and had full access to all of the facilities at the Home, including the dining room and synagogue. Transportation was provided for those unable to make the trip on their own, and while at the Home residents were provided with meals tailored to suit their nutritional needs, medical attention, occupational therapy, and recreational and social activities, such as outings, arts and crafts and discussion groups. Residents attended the program between two and five days a week.
Baycrest continues to run its Day Care program, but places residents into one of three clubs according to their cognitive ability: the Parkland Club (cognitively well), Oceanside Club (mild cognitive impairment), and the Samuel Lunenfeld Mountainview Club (moderate to severe cognitive impairment).
Scope and Content
File consists of brochures, Day Care bulletins, correspondence, and a service calendar.
