Convalescent Care

The Convalescent Care program provides additional short-term recuperation after surgery or serious illness. The focus of Convalescent Care is to help the client to achieve the highest level of independence possible for a safe discharge back to the community. We focus on activities of daily living (walking, dressing, feeding etc.) and physiotherapy treatment. Discharge planning begins when you are admitted by striving towards your goals with the support of a multidisciplinary team (Nurse, CCA, pharmacy, Social Worker, Physiotherapist, PTA). The average length of stay is less than 6 weeks. The charge for Convalescent Care is set by the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The convalescent care wing has 18 private rooms.

The Adult Day Support program provides recreation, socialization and personal care for clients and daytime respite for caregivers. The program runs 9am to 4pm, seven days a week, and 1 to 8pm Monday to Friday. The daily charge is set by the Ministry of Health. This is a much needed and high demand program.
