Caregivers who visit their loved ones at Bridgepoint Active Healthcare in Riverdale are no longer being seen as visitors.

As a result of a new partnership between Sinai Health System and WoodGreen Community Services, with the help of $2.3 million in funding from The Change Foundation, family caregivers are now viewed as key partners in a patient’s care team from the hospital to the community.
