Other Services

Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation Services are available to our residents through the Extra Mural Program. These include Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Speech Therapy.

York Care Centre has three designated staff members who work Monday through Friday. Their role is to ensure residents are assessed, referral for rehabilitation services are made as soon as possible, to ensure each resident has appropriate equipment and is enabled to function at their maximum potential.

Should services be required, the Registered Nurse completes the necessary service requisition and forwards it to the Extra Mural Program. The services are generally provided at York Care Centre.

Dental Services

A dental suite is available for dental visits onsite. Dr. Mathew Moore provides a regular monthly service to residents. Appointments may be made to access this service by contacting the Unit Coordinator. Payment of the dental service is the responsibility of the resident and/or family. If the resident is unable to give consent or provide direction, or manage their finances, a family member must accompany the resident to the visit. Other dentists may utilize the suite by contacting the Unit Coordinator.

Transportation is available for the resident to utilize for various outings/appointments i.e. medical appointments, special events with family etc. We have a wheelchair accessible van, that is driven by volunteer drivers.
