Halton Healthcare Services’ (HHS) Rehabilitation and Geriatric Program includes an array of defined inpatient and outpatient services that together address the complex needs of the elderly and the adult population requiring specialized and general rehabilitation or complex continuing care. In addition, there are a variety of discipline-specific as well as interdisciplinary services and clinics that fulfill a rehabilitative role for both adults and children.
HHS has implemented Safer Elder Care – an award winning program that recognizes the unique needs of older adults and provides a culture of care that is sensitive to the needs of this population.
In May 2009, our commitment to excellence in geriatric care was recognized when HHS was awarded the Nurses Improving Care for Health-System Elders (NICHE) designation. HHS was the first non-teaching community hospital in Ontario to receive this designation and is now connected to over 200 other NICHE organizations across North America.
