Long Term Care Unit, Hay River Health Centre (H.H. Williams Memorial Hospital)


Philosophy of Care

The Long Term Care Unit is located within the H.H. Williams Memorial Hospital. This ten bed unit provides individualized extended care for residents with severe chronic disabilities which have resulted in physical frailty and/or cognitive impairment and who require 24 hour a day professional nursing services and continuing medical supervision, but does not require acute care services. Residents at this level are usually not independently mobile, with or without, mechanical aids, and have a limited potential for rehabilitation and often require institutional care on a permanent basis. Our long term care services are designed to provide a safe and comfortable environment for residents socially, physically, psychologically and spiritually.
