All Quest sites provide private bedroom accomodations, comfortable living rooms, individually accommodated bathrooms and supervised access to kitchen facilities. Outside leisure space and access to the larger community of supports is an important part of Quest supports and programs.
All clients at Quest have regular access to rehabilitative staff working as a team. The rehabilitation team includes a psychologist, social worker, medical doctor, nurse, and an occupational therapist. Recreational and vocational opportunites are organized through our community partners. Other facility staff may be called in on a consulting basis when needed. These may include: dietitians, music therapists, physiotherapists, financial services staff, and anyone else who may be required to assist clients in attaining their goals. Community-based services, such as optometrists, dentists, podiatrists and speech language therapy may also be used when needed.
Each client works with members of the team to assess their needs, decide on a plan of action, and determine individual goals and objectives. Individual plans vary and are reviewed regularly and revised according to progress. Team conferences for each individual are held at least every three months.
All medications must be given to nursing staff upon admission. Quest will provide all medications ordered during a client’s stay with us. Medications are administered by licensed nursing staff or trained rehabilitative staff.
