Community Support Services

Our team is staffed with a Manager, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Rehabilitation Assistants, First Nation/Aboriginal System Navigators who provide Discharge Planning Services, Assisted Living Services Coordinators, and an Advanced Clinician Practitioner in Arthritis Care (ACPAC) Therapist

Coordination services include the development of community and regional program infrastructure, management of a loan cupboard, advocacy, training and program planning. The provision of outreach community based physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and hospital discharge planning services are also available.

The Occupational Therapists continue to work with clients to restore their ability to carry out activities of daily living by helping to regain lost function or adapting activities and environments to the person’s abilities, to maximize independence and enhance their quality of life.

Our Physiotherapists continue to manage and prevent physical problems caused by illness, disability and disease, work related injuries, and aging.

Rehabilitation Assistants work closely with the Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists to help clients reach their full potential while maintaining as much independence as possible.  PTA/OTA services can include therapeutic taping, caregiver back care, cardiac rehab, and stroke rehab.

The First Nation/Aboriginal System Navigators provide discharge planning, service coordination, advocacy and facilitate client-centred care for seniors who are being discharged from hospitals to address their health care needs, and to help access services necessary to ensure their continued care when they return home.

The Assisted Living Services Coordinators assist high-risk (frail or cognitively-impaired) seniors who do not need 24-hour nursing care and can live at home, but whose care requirements cannot be met solely on a scheduled visitation basis.

Our Arthritis Management Program features one of only 54 ACPAC therapists in Canada.  Services offered include full assessment with review of symptoms and limitations, review of medical history and current medications, and musculoskeletal assessment.  Recommendations for the management of your arthritis may include suggestion of additional testing, assistance with other healthcare providers, education, and more.

Enhanced services were made possible through additional funding received from the North East Local Health Integration Network (NE LHIN). The funding was utilized to expand services to the long-term care and disabled patients who require personal support care after regular work hours and during weekends. Services are provided for individuals who require temporary services while waiting for long-term care placement, palliative care, convalescence care, or who would otherwise occupy an alternate level of care bed in hospital.
