Transitional care

What is transitional care?

When acute care hospitalization is no longer necessary, but a patient is not physically able to function at home, our transitional care unit (TCU) is a positive intermediary step for rehabilitation. Transitional care is needed in these situations:

  • Recovery from major surgery, joint replacement, vascular or abdominal procedures.
  • Repeated hospitalization.
  • Recovery after major accident or stroke.
  • Pain management.
  • Wound management for injuries which are not healing or need special care.
  • Nutritional therapy including tube feeding.
  • Chronic disease management for conditions such as Parkinson's disease.
  • IV therapy.

Your rehabilitation team includes:

  • Physical therapy.
  • Occupational therapy.
  • Speech therapy.
  • Respiratory therapy.
  • Activities and recreational therapy.
  • Nutritional services.
  • Social services.
