Providence Care provides a range of inpatient rehabilitation services to patients over the age of 16, who are recovering from physical injury, illness or disease, and those who require round-the-clock nursing care.
Patients have experienced a life-altering disability such as stroke, spinal cord injury (SCI), acquired brain injury (ABI), musculoskeletal, respiratory, amputee or neuromuscular issues and require a period of intensive rehabilitation.
Each of the unit’s patients has an individualized program supervised by a physiatrist – a medical doctor who specializes in physical rehabilitation medicine – and is supported by a team of health professionals.
Restorative Rehabilitative Care & Seniors Rehabilitative Care
The Restorative Rehabilitative Care inpatient service meets the needs of patients over age 16 who require longer periods of rehabilitation, based on the individual’s tolerance level for various therapies. The needs of these patients are not met easily through traditional acute care or “short stay” rehabilitation.
Patients must be medically well enough and motivated to participate in low to moderate therapy from a minimum of 15-30 minutes per day, to 1-2 hours per day, five days per week. The focus of the service is on enabling patients to reach their maximum physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological and social functional levels.
The Seniors Rehabilitative inpatient service provides inter-professional care delivery to frail seniors age 65 and older with complex health needs.
This unit offers clinical services: assessment, consultation, recommendation, treatment and rehabilitation as well as non-clinical services: education, capacity building and advocacy. Patients must be able to participate in progressing from a low to high tolerance therapy from a minimum of 15-30 minutes per day up to two hours per day, five days per week.
