Welcoming Dr. Rhea Uy: A New Era in Holistic Elderly Care at Hospall Private Homecare
Dr. Rhea Uy’s philosophy:
“Growing old in AGE is a FACT of life, and growing old with DIGNITY is a basic HUMAN RIGHT. But growing old with GRACE is a CHOICE and a GIFT we can give to those who once cared for us when they’re no longer able to make that choice.”
I consider it the greatest of honors to care for those who had walked before us and made possible the life we all enjoy today. Even if those afflicted with dementia become unable to recount what has just happened, short as it may be, they still go through life’s experiences in the PRESENT. And in those very fleeting moments of the present, we all have the capability to turn our life’s experiences around with the power of the simplest of gestures - a smile, a kind word, an honest compliment, a listening ear, a gentle touch or the smallest act of caring – all of which can make the most significant of differences.”
Dr. Rhea Uy has been a Licensed Canadian Family Physician since 2014, with a special interest in Palliative and Geriatric Medicine. Since 201, she has been providing care to the elderly, the most vulnerable, and the dying in their homes and in multiple congregate settings, such as Long Term Care (LTC) Homes, Retirement Homes, and Group Homes. Throughout the COVID Pandemic, she continued to provide medical support to several municipal and private LTCHs, served as the medical director of a private LTC Home when called upon, as well as provided preventive care and vaccination services for Hospitals, Townships, and Public Health Units across York and Toronto Region.
Dr. Uy is very passionate about all aspects of Aging, from Care of the Elderly to Care of Aging Skin. She has completed advanced training in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Medicine and obtained the Designation of Board Certified Aesthetic Physician in Aug 2022 from the Canadian Board of Aesthetic Medicine.
Dr. Rhea Uy now runs her own Skin Clinic in Vaughan - MD Aesthetic and Health Services, supervises nurse injectors, and serves as the medical director of multiple cosmetic clinics in Ontario.
