Total Care

Currently we have in residence 85 individuals of various ages 35 of whom have Braden Scores of 12 or lower indicating High or Severe risk of developing decubitus ulcers. No child in our care has ever developed one of these ulcers.

Complex Care Needs

Some children have severe mobility and neurological disorders , post-stroke management needs, moderate to severe Cerebral Palsy, esophageal motility disorders, complex seizure disorders requiring recurrent seizure protocol management and supervision of medications.

Children with G-tubes, sometimes combined with behaviour disorders, often need tertiary assessment and replacement of these devices in hospital. This requires cooperation between our employees and hospital staff. The level of trust and respect that has developed between ourselves and our local hospitals ensures that these cooperative efforts are most beneficial for the individuals concerned.

Respite Care Services

Timely use of respite care can save a placement from breakdown and allow parents to continue to care for their child. Our respite service provides exactly what you and your parent caregivers need: a safe high quality temporary placement that is reliable and worry free. Safe transportation in our well equipped vehicles can be arranged if desired. Read more . . .

Palliative Care

Occasionally children in palliative condition are referred to Stewart Homes specifically for end of life care. Many of our staff have developed the special skills necessary to work with children with terminal illnesses and have experience working closely with palliative care specialist physicians providing for these individuals. Our staff focus closely on the children’s family members as they see both child and family through the end of life process.
