Due to changes in Ministry funding for Physiotherapy, these services will look different starting on August 1, 2013. This means that residents will be eligible for physiotherapy services should they meet certain criteria. The physiotherapist will assess each resident and contact families should their loved one no longer be eligible. We are happy to announce that we are retaining our current PT provider, pt Health. This will provide consistency during this time of change. SVNC is committed to maintaining resident independence and preventing decline in function. As such we will continue to work with residents to assist them to meet their highest level of functioning with alternate programs, should they no longer meet the criteria for physiotherapy services. Please feel free to contact the Home should you have any questions regarding the recent changes to Physiotherapy Services in Long Term Care.
