Medically Complex Services
To provide medical management, skilled nursing, and a range of diagnostic, therapeutic and technological services to achieve clients’ identified goals and optimize quality of life.
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.
Extensive Services provides care for medically stable clients requiring on-going skilled, technology-based care related to acute illness and chronic disease management, including chronic ventilator care, complex wound care, peritoneal dialysis, as well as other medical and post-surgical complex care needs. Clients are admitted from acute care centers and from the community if they require complex wound care.
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.
