Restorative care

***As of August 30, 2017, Restorative Care is located in the North Tower room 3N500 & 3N700. See our maps to Find Your Way.

The Restorative Care Program helps those affected by such conditions as: a neurological injury, stroke or trauma but no longer require acute care services. At this point in care such patients may benefit from a slower program of rehabilitation which is called Restorative Care. The type of support given in this program allows patients to achieve their highest personal level of function.

These patients will work with a care team that includes:

  • Physicians
  • Nursing
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Speech Language Pathology
  • Dietetics,
  • Social Work
  • Therapeutic recreation.

Restorative patients typically require a longer hospital stay (between 45 to 60 days) than patients in the active rehabilitation program. Patients in the restorative stream will typically receive therapy at least 3 times weekly, as they work at a slower pace to build tolerance, and meet their goals.

The team works closely with the patient and family, assisting patients to reach their highest level of ability, independence and quality of life. The focus for our restorative patients is on maximizing function with low intensity, high duration therapy during their stay.

The Restorative Care program strives to support patients in their goal to return home. If this is not possible, alternate settings (ie. retirement home) are considered and arranged with the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC).
