To provide high intensity, time limited, interprofessional rehabilitation, with a focus on clients with musculoskeletal conditions and/or who have experienced a spinal cord injury.
The interprofessional team consists of a Physician, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Registered Nurses, Registered Practical Nurses, Rehabilitation Assistants, Social Workers, Registered Dietitians, Speech Language Pathologists, and Spiritual Care Associates. If required, referral to a Psychologist can be made. The program works closely with the North West Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) in order to facilitate clients’ discharges back to the community with formal support services.
Medically stable clients who have orthopaedic conditions, who have experienced a spinal cord injury and/or who have chronic neurological conditions. Clients may or may not have multiple co-morbidities.
Primary diagnoses include: Hip and/or Knee Replacement; Amputation (prosthetic-training stage); Hip Fractures; Spinal Cord Injury; Chronic Neurological conditions.
To be eligible for admission, clients need to have restorative potential. In other words, there is reason to believe, based on clinical expertise and evidence in the literature where available, that the client’s condition will undergo functional improvement and benefit from rehabilitative care.
