Continuing Care Centre
Compassion & Excellence
The Continuing Care Centre is committed to compassion and excellence in the provision of complex care and rehabilitation services. We strive to meet the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each person. We believe in treating each person with respect, dignity and compassion.
Three levels of care are provided in our CCC unit that include:
- Activation / Restoration – with a functional goal of progression (i.e. exercise and recreational activities) to increase and strengthen independence. The average length of stay in this program is 56 to 72 days.
- Short Term Complex Medical Management – with a functional goal of stabilization and progressions (i.e. medically complex and specialized services) to help avoid further loss of function, increase activity tolerance, and progress. The average length of stay in this program is up to 90 days.
- Long-term Complex Medical Management – with a functional goal of maintenance (i.e. medically complex and specialized services over an extended period of time) to maintain/slow the rate of, or avoid, further loss of function.
An application process is required to access our complex care services. If you are a candidate for our program, your health care team will make a referral to Coordinated Access through the South West Local Health Integration Network (South West LHIN). The South West LHIN will review the application, confirm eligibility, and place your name on a list for admission when a bed becomes available. (Please see below for Eligibility Guidelines and Definitions). You can choose to have inpatient services in various hospitals across the South West region, by speaking to the South West LHIN about your options, choices and preferred location.
Offices - Monday to Friday, 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
