Individuals have a right to accept or refuse health care, to obtain information about their health and health care, and to participate in decision making and planning for their care. Our goal is to help our tenants refine and elaborate his/her remaining abilities safely. Independence and responsibility are necessary for a meaningful life.
The on-site Assisted Living Services Co-ordinator provides appropriate referrals within the community. As a liaison she provides information about available community resources and helps tenants and their families use and understand the health care system. Support is provided during times of physical and emotional distress.
Heidehof currently provides a broad range of non-professional support (personal support and essential housekeeping) within its funded packages of services. Heidehof can assist tenants to access professional services (nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, dietician, speech therapy) through a referral to the LHIN.
