Our services

Nursing Department

The Nursing Department strives to provide the best possible care through technical competence and compassionate concern. The resident is viewed as a unique individual, supported in his or her efforts to be independent as long as possible, assisted when that independence diminishes, and finally supported at the end of life. The nurses and paraprofessional staff collaborate with the members of the multidisciplinary team and the family to achieve these goals.

Housekeeping - Laundry

Housekeeping staff provide housekeeping for the rooms and the facility. To help maintain cleanliness, boots or shoes must be removed at the entrance during inclement weather.

Bayview Centre is responsible for the laundry of sheets and towels. Bayview Centre also offers a free laundry service for the resident's personal clothing. Please note that only clothing that can be washed and dried in the machine should be left with the Centre. Dry cleaning remains the responsibility of the resident or his/her family.

Family members of a resident may choose to do the laundry themselves, but they must sign the form available at the admissions office to this effect.

Occupational Therapy

The goal of occupational therapy is to maintain an optimal level of comfort and independence. The occupational therapist assesses the person's cognitive status, upper limb mobility, posture, and needs for wheelchairs and adapted equipment. The occupational therapist takes into account the abilities of each person in relation to their environment.

Nutrition and diet

Healthy eating plays an important role in the care and quality of life of residents. A complete nutritional assessment is done during the first few weeks after admission. When necessary, recommendations are made by the dietician for each resident to provide an appropriate therapeutic diet, food texture or fluid consistency. Thereafter, a review of all nutritional plans is done annually and more often if needed.

A dietician, in collaboration with the kitchen staff and the care team, has developed balanced, appetizing and seasonal menus to ensure optimal nutrition and hydration. Meals are served in the upstairs dining room or, if preferred, in the room. Therapeutic or individual resident snacks are arranged by the Clinical Nutrition Department and are served in the afternoon and/or evening. Light snacks are available at all times on each care unit. Staff, family members, visitors or residents may purchase food or beverages from the cafeteria. To contribute to the resident's quality of life, family members are invited to occasionally bring in one of the resident's favourite dishes.

Physiotherapy

The goal of physiotherapy is to ensure the safety of the resident while promoting mobility, functional autonomy and comfort. Upon admission, safety needs are assessed. Subsequently, a functional autonomy profile is developed to further define needs and determine appropriate interventions. When prescribed by the physician, a Physical Rehabilitation Therapist (PRT) will provide regular treatment.

The Physiotherapy department is involved in the assessment of transfers, gait program, mobility and bed positioning, prevention of injuries due to falls and exercise program.
