Short-term health and/or stabilization services

Our Child Health service offers respite, medical, or palliative care for youth up to 25 years of age who have complex medical needs. A 24-hour nursing team and support staff are onsite. These services are of transitional nature and focus on preparing people for moving back home or to a new residential setting.

The stabilization service offers support to children and adults who are referred to St.Amant for specific clinical interventions. This could be to support planning and interventions for individuals with an acquired brain injury or for others to develop and implement treatment strategies to reduce challenging behaviors. This service also welcomes people whose living arrangements may have changed and require stabilization before the person can return home.

People supported by Health & Transition Services have access to a range of supports and services during their stay, 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 and a wide range of clinical supports. Basic medical, dental, and diagnostic services are also available on-site.


St.Amant’s Health & Transition Services provides a place for specialized, temporary health and/or stabilization support for all ages within an in-patient healthcare facility. Upon admission, people receiving services must have a defined plan to return to the family home or move to an alternate residential setting. Discharge planning begins upon admission to Health and Transition Services. Respite services are planned and booked in advance, we do not have capacity for emergency respite within this program.
