Long-term Rehabilitation

Back Home Up Next

Recovering from a stroke or a fracture, a resident will need specialized short-term care focused on the restoration of functionality, coupled with nursing care.

Long-term rehabilitation is for residents who have a functional impairment, chronic disease or dementia. A combination of therapies is prescribed to raise their level of comfort, or even prevent further deterioration of their condition. These may include restorative physiotherapy, and a rehabilitative nursing program.

The physiotherapists are on-site full-time at Irene Nursing Home which comes equipped with a Physio Room.
