BGS – ANNUAL REPORT – 2020-21
Founded in 2011, Baycrest Global Solutions (BGS) brings the best of Toronto-based Baycrest’s 100+ years of leading expertise in aging and brain health to the world.
It does so in support of Baycrest’s mission to create a world where every older adult enjoys a life of purpose, inspiration and fulfilment, and its quest to defeat dementia.
As the international knowledge commercialization arm of Baycrest, BGS was established to be the commercial partner of choice for comprehensive, sustainable solutions for the health and residential care of older adults worldwide. At the same time, it has also become an important source of new revenue generation for Baycrest, allowing us to advance our work domestically in the brain health care sector.
Despite the international travel restrictions during the pandemic BGS continued to pursue opportunities to disseminate our expertise during the 2020-21 fiscal year, with significant achievements. Including the following:
- BGS signed a 10-year contract to operate The Aspen Tree, a luxury older adult community in Bangkok, Thailand. The community will open in 2023 and BGS is actively working with the developers to ensure a successful launch.
- BGS completed its consulting contract in Xi’An, China. In this role, BGS assisted the publicly owned real estate firm to develop programs and train staff to deliver services for older adults.
- Dementia: A Caregiver’s Guide, written by Baycrest experts, was translated into Mandarin. The Mandarin version of the guide won the award of the most popular scientific book of 2020 and sold out its first publication in China.
