What We Do

We provide a broad range of care, on a short-stay basis, to individuals who need assistance with daily living.

Many individuals with chronic and complex health issues continue to live at home or in the community with the assistance of their family members or other caregivers. For numerous reasons, there may be times when the family member or other caregiver needs a short-term, temporary break. We provide care for their loved one in our complex medical unit for up to 14 days per visit. This service is offered on a user-pay basis.

 Patient & Family Services

At Bickle Centre, we hold specialty clinics on site for our inpatients. Health care professionals travel to Bickle Centre so that our patients do not need to travel to another location to receive specialized care.

We offer these specialty clinics on a regular basis:

  • Chiropody
  • Ear, nose & throat
  • Neurology​
  • Optical services
  • Optometry​
  • Psychiatry
  • Physiatry
  • Urology

The specialists in these clinics are also experts in working with patients with complex medical needs.

Your care team will arrange your appointment and provide you with the time and date, as well as arrange a porter if needed.

You can also find other services throughout UHN. Learn more about patient and family services available throughout UHN​​​.​​​​​
