Home / Facility Based Continuing Care / Long Term Care / Extended Care and Veterans Program - Wascana Rehab Centre

Wascana Rehabilitation Centre provides specialized long term care placement for clients with complex care needs and long term care placement for Veterans funded by Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC).

The Extended Care/VAC Program provides resident centered care for people who can no longer remain at home or in community, following a complex illness or life changing event. Care and services are provided by an interdisciplinary team to approximately 250 residents across seven care units. Although residents range in age from 14 years to 100+ years, the facility has a higher percentage of younger residents than most long term care facilities.

Our staff provides skilled nursing care, as well as social, recreational and therapeutic activities, and focus on treating and caring for the whole person with the goal of providing the best quality of life. In addition to meeting these needs, staff helps residents to plan and direct their own care, and where possible explore independent living. The Program recognizes that families and friends are an integral part of the health and well being of residents and welcomes their involvement in the resident’s activities.
