The Complex Continuing Care Program of Baycrest Hospital provides care for patients, 60 years and over, with complex medical conditions in a non-acute hospital setting.
Program & Services:
Our program provides assessment, treatment and management for patients with multiple chronic complex medical conditions and diagnosis. Our interdisciplinary teams manage patients with tracheostomies, ileostomies, enteral feeding, IV, PICC Lines, and advanced wounds. At Baycrest CCC we provide pain and symptom management and provision of end of life care.
Approach to Care:
Our approach to care includes providing patients quality of life within the scope of the patients condition. We provide an interprofessional approach to meeting physical, emotional, social and spiritual well-being, and offer a holistic and team approach to end of life care for terminal medical conditions. The Complex Continuing Care Program helps patients and their families identify strategies that support client centered and quality-of-life goals. Although the Hospital is non-sectarian, the principles of Judaism guide Baycrest in daily operations while serving clients of all backgrounds. Baycrest is a Kosher facility.
