'MicroCheck' stands for Monitoring of Individuals in the Community and Reporting Observations CHECK.
The “MICRO-CHECK” Program is a preventative health maintenance program, designed & implemented by the Mount Newton Centre in 1979 to provide a “safety net” for independent seniors wishing to remain at home.
The Program consists of “on-going” and/or tailor made flexible services and supportive visits to the homes of seniors by the Centre’s Registered Nurses. It is a loosely structured program, designed to “fill the gaps” in service delivery on a space available basis, and is responsive to the many and varied needs of the individual not offered by Home Support Services, or procedures as offered by the Long Term Care Home Nursing Care Program.
Each individual visit is documented in a written progress report. “MICRO CHECKS” are provided with NO FEE, being funded by Mount Newton Centre fundraising initiatives and donations.
