Health & Transition Services
St.Amant’s Health & Transition Services provides a place for specialized, temporary support. Our goal is to transition people receiving services back home or to a new permanent home through successful transitions. Quality residential care and developmental services are provided to 104 children and adults with developmental disabilities at 440 River Road.
Those supported by Health & Transition Services have access to a range of supports and services including a private, year-round school for those aged 22 and under and daily recreation services for adults with leisure, educational and work-experience options.
Clinical services include nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech language pathology, psychology, dietary services and social work. Basic medical, dental and diagnostic services are also available on-site through medical services.
The areas within Health & Transition Services:
The adult health units support people over the age of 25 who have complex continuing care needs that require intervention or the support of a 24-hour nursing team and/or temporary support until a community option is available. Respite is a service offered to families who are supporting their family member at home and this unit also supports the palliative care needs of people with intellectual disabilities who are nearing end of life.
Child and Young Adult Health
Similar in scope to the Adult Health service, the Child and Young Adult Health service offers medical, palliative and respite for youth up to 25 years of age. These services are of transitional nature and focuses on preparing people for community transitions.
The stabilization service offers support to children and adults who are referred to St.Amant for specific clinical intervention. This could be to support increase skills after an acquired brain injury or to support a change in behaviour. This service also supports people whose living arrangements may have changed and require stabilization before the person can return to a stable environment.
