SeeMee Understanding frailty together

Developed at Perley Health and the subject of ongoing research and evaluation, SeeMe™ is a comprehensive framework for developing care plans that prioritize residents’ values, preferences and desired lifestyle. Under SeeMe™, a resident collaborates with their family and care team to make informed decisions about treatment and intervention options. A brief introduction to SeeMe™ is available here, while a full information package designed for residents and families is availabe here.

The Centre of Excellence conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the initial implementation of SeeMe™ (February 2019–January 2020) at Perley Health. A key finding: during the 12-month evaluation period, the number of Perley Health residents who preferred to be transferred to hospital decreased by 15% compared to the previous year.

The Centre of Excellence continues to explore the impacts of Perley Health’s implementation of SeeMe™, along with how best to share this knowledge with others.
