Resources for Patients and Their Families

Q: How can I attend the Seniors and Rehabilitation Day Hospital (SRDH)?
A: The SRDH must receive a referral signed by a physician. Referrals are prioritized, with priority given to patients who have been discharged from the Emergency Department or Acute Care Units. If the referral meets the criteria, a schedule is made and the team will contact the patient. The waiting time varies depending on the demands on the service.

Q: How often do patients come to the SRDH?
A: In general, patients attend for a period of 8 weeks. Shorter or longer periods of time may apply, depending on the status of the patient and their rehab goals. The frequency and length of time of the appointments depends on the number of therapies the patient is receiving.

Q: How do patients get to the SRDH?
A: Patients are responsible for their own transportation, and parking expenses. Some patients come by Transhelp.
