Today we honoured the memory of Darryl Salach - son, brother, uncle, poet and music lover. Darryl battled ALS and was one of our first patients in our Augmentative and Alternative Communication Clinic. Darryl’s parents, Pat & Henry, gathered with the whole AAC team today to dedicate a bench in his memory.
The AAC clinic read a piece that Darryl had written from The Toronto Quarterly about the role and importance of communication and technology. The team reflected on how their time with Darryl helped shape how their clinic delivers services to every patient they see.
Darryl’s parents Pat and Henry wanted to show appreciation to the AAC team members who demonstrated compassion and care to Darryl during his ALS journey.
Thank you Salach Family for your generous gift. Darryl’s bench will forever offer a meaningful space in our Healing Garden. A place where patients, family members and staff can visit to find peace, solitude and comfort. #WeAreHDS#InMemory#Gratitude

Many of us take our ability to communicate for granted, but the ability to speak, hear and be heard is much more vital to our everyday lives than most of us realize. "Speak well. Hear well.

Day 30: Scrabble. Painting. Cycling. Fishing. Do you know how many therapeutic recreation activities are offered at HDS?
Day 28: The loss of functionality can be overwhelming for a patient and their families. Social workers at HDS can provide comfort, care, and hope by easing stress and advocating for a patient’s needs.
