224 convalescent care services

Convalescent care for the patient involves care while recovering from a medical procedure. Unlike traditional "step-down" care options, most of which are designed to provide care on a long-term basis, convalescent care is short-term care provided by a team of care takers.

Our convalescent care facility is a form of care provided after a surgical procedure, but before going home. We provide a home-like environment designed to allow patients to transition to their independent lifestyle when they are strong enough to do so. This type of care often gives you the patient and their families the added peace of mind knowing that caring for the patient, or providing a safe environment during the recovery period, has been taken care of.

A number of services are provided (amongst others):

  • Transport service from and to doctor's rooms
