We provide active functional rehabilitative care to the medically complex frail elderly who have experienced a decline in function due to a recent hospitalization or illness. We have two patient streams, rehab only and rehab for individuals who require hemodialysis.
Dialysis is provided on site, 6 days per week for 2 hours per day facilitating time for participants to engage in therapy programs.
Participant must be older than 65 years of age or for those requiring dialysis older than 60 years.
Participants must have realistic rehabilitation goals and need to be motivated and able to participate in daily therapies provided in both individual and group formats.
Using a patient centred approach, care is provided by an inter-professional team whose expertise includes helping participants improve their mobility, balance and walking; providing falls prevention education and strategies; optimizing the activities of daily living; managing changes associate with aging; addressing memory and thinking problems; and managing chronic pain.
The inter-professional team supports participants to optimize their function, transitioning back to their community and connecting them with appropriate community resources as needed.
