How can my family member come to live on one of your Special Needs Units?
We work with the WRHA’s Long Term Care Access Centre to determine who gets admitted. Prior to coming to live at Riverview you or your family member will be assessed to determine how best your care needs can be met. This is usually done by community care providers from home care and your physician. If you are in a hospital and cannot return home, you’ll be assessed by members of your care team and the long term care access centre team to see what your needs are and what options are available. The long term access centre keeps track of who is waiting. As beds become available, applications from our waiting list are sent to us by the Access Centre.
