Maintaining Quality of Life: Advancement in Seniors' Care
Seniors' Care

Date: 2014-07-24

Seniors' care at St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) has undergone transformation and advancement this past year.

One important internal change is that programs and services for seniors are now aligned under one management portfolio, overseen by Meaghan Sharp, Vice President, Seniors' Health and Chief Nursing Executive. In doing so, we have made it easier for seniors and their families to navigate the healthcare system.

As the regional system lead for Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO), SJCG has been actively involved in the treatment of responsive behaviours in seniors.

We recognized an immediate need to manage and support these clients, which led to the opening of an interim Behavioural Support Unit at Hogarth Riverview Manor (HRM) this past year.

The first client was admitted to the program in August 2013. The transitional treatment and stabilization unit is for residents eligible for long-term care who have cognitive impairments due to mental health and addictions, dementia, or other neurological conditions, and who exhibit responsive behaviours.

The interprofessional team at HRM works collaboratively to assess client needs in order to enhance or improve quality of life through the reduction or stabilization of responsive behaviours.
