Inpatient Complex Care & Rehabilitative Care

Special Rehabilitation & Acquired Brain Injury

Purpose

To provide high intensity, time limited, interprofessional rehabilitation, with a focus on clients with neurological conditions.

The interprofessional team consists of a Physiatrist, 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.

Client Profile

Medically stable clients who have a neurological condition, with priority placement of clients who have experienced a stroke and/or an acquired brain injury.  Clients may or may not have multiple co-morbidities.

For clients who have experienced a stroke, those with an alphaFIM score between 40 and 80 will be admitted via the stroke pathway.  Appropriateness of this unit for clients with FIM scores outside this range will be evaluated on an individual basis.

Clients who have experienced a spinal cord injury and/or have other neurological conditions will be considered for placement on this unit, depending on availability of beds on the two rehabilitation units.

Admission Criteria

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.

Location

  • Location: 3rd Floor North
  • Number of Beds: 25 Beds
