At HHCC, we support our complex continuing care patients through three programs:
Complex continuing care
Some complex care needs for adults can’t be met in the community or a long-term care home. This program offers assessments; integrated care planning, including discharge; diagnostic and therapeutic services; and support for families from a team of health professionals in different professions who work together with the patient.
This program is for people who are living with a life-limiting illness, which is usually in an advanced stage. Our focus at HHCC is on care and compassion. We offer a supportive team approach for our patients and their families. Our top priority is helping our patients manage pain and other distressing symptoms.
Slow stream rehabilitation
Sometimes people are not able to manage aggressive rehab programs that are common after many illnesses and injury. When a patient needs more time and a more gradual approach, our team offers what is called slow stream rehabilitation to improve functional ability, level of independence and quality of life.
