Naomi Wong

Naomi’s story

My name is Naomi Wong and I have been a Patient and Family Advisor at North York General for two years, but my connection with the hospital began 22 years ago when I was brought into the world. My great-grandmother was among the first of my relatives to hold me. On this Family Day, I want to share with you the story of my great-grandmother’s last day with us.

Keeping pace with life

I had been falling occasionally over several years. I had no idea what was causing it. I just simply fell, and at 90 plus years old, you can imagine the risk of serious injury.

Lorna’s story

When my son Tim went away for his first year of university, his peers started to notice that he wasn’t going to class. At home, he spent most of his time in his room and wouldn’t talk to anyone. He became more and more reclusive. Something was wrong.
