The philosophy of the Continuing Care Unit is to assist the clients to maintain the highest level of independence possible. Patients/residents are supported and encouraged to make every effort to carry out their activities of daily living, including making their own bed, dressing, bathing, attending social functions, and move with as little assistance as is necessary.

The nursing staff, in conjunction with the client and other members of the team, such as the occupational and physiotherapy departments, nutritional services department, pharmacy, and discharge planning regularly review and assess required needs.

FLOOR LAYOUT

The Continuing Care Unit has 20 beds; four (4) private rooms and eight (8) semi-privates. Decisions regarding patient/resident accommodations are made on a needs-basis. The unit has a dining room, courtyard, TV-lounge room, laundry facilities, and a hair dressing room for clients to use.
