The Post Discharge Program is designed to support seniors and marginalised individuals after they are discharged from the Etobicoke General Hospital, Brampton Civic Hospital and St Joseph Health Centre Toronto. The program promotes independence and well-being of participants through connection to local community resources for physical, mental, emotional and social well-being. It includes reassurance checks, friendly visits for home bound clients, and connecting them to community resources they might not otherwise have.
In our last fiscal year, the program significantly grew to serve 282 clients from the pilot project intake of 78 clients in 2016. This was due to the addition of Brampton Civic Hospital and St. Joseph’s Health Centre Toronto as partners. We recognized that the needs of the community are great and welcomed the opportunity to extend services to accept self-referrals and referrals from other hospitals
