Convalescent Care

Services are temporarily unavailable due to COVID-19.

The convalescent care program provides quality care to individuals who need time and support to recover before returning home from a hospital visit. Eligibility is determined by the hospital discharge planner.

The program meets the health care needs of clients and reduces pressure on crowded hospitals.

  • Family physicians
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Registered nurses and registered practical nurses
