Our program serves adults with physical, emotional or social challenges who live in the community. We help you continue living at home for as long as possible and reach your personal goals.
- Program services include:
- nursing care and supervision
- occupational therapy
- patient and family education and support
- medication management and reminders
- socialization and therapeutic recreation
You will need a doctor’s referral to be part of the program. A case co-ordinator or other health professional can also refer you with approval from a doctor.
To be part of the program, you must:
- have needs that can be met by our staff
- need reassessment, rehabilitation or health support
- live in the area served by Alberta Health
- live at home or be leaving a care centre or hospital
- have a doctor in the community
- be committed to attending the program regularly
- be able to function in a group without continual one-on-one supervision
- not show behaviour that can harm yourself or others
- not need a mechanical lift for transfers
Most patients attend the program twice a week. We ask you to try to schedule appointments on days you do not attend the program.
We can help arrange rides for you to and from the program through the Disabled Adult Transport System (DATS). We ask you to cancel your DATS rides if you are not coming to the program on a scheduled day.
The program costs $10 per visit as set by Alberta Health Services. You must cover this cost unless you are admitted to a hospital.
We will ask you to pre-authorize payments for monthly billing.
You are allowed two weeks per calendar year for holidays and will not be billed for these sessions. Sessions held during holiday time that goes beyond two weeks are billable.
Discharge from the program
Once we determine that you no longer meet the admission criteria for the program, we will talk to you and your family about discharge and next steps.
