Kenderdine Park is Ministry of Health certified providing both hospital and rest home levels of care.
As a Hospital facility, we have a Registered Nurse on duty at all times and a Clinical Nurse Manager oversees the care of all residents in addition to the education of all registered nurses and caregiving staff.
A doctor attends the facility weekly with access to an on call physician should urgent medical attention be required at night or during the weekend. Should a patient prefer his or her own doctor, this is accommodated at the residents personal cost.
Medications are controlled by nursing staff and kept to a minimum through consultation with our doctors and pharmacists. They are strictly monitored to ensure that medication is dispensed safely and correctly. We use the Robotics system of medication dispensing.
On occasion residents need to attend specialist, x-ray, medical, dentist or other such appointments. We encourage families to continue to take relatives to these appointments, however the rest home will escort residents if required. Should any patients require the services of a social worker this can also be arranged.
A podiatrist attends to any podiatry needs of the residents every eight to ten weeks.
A physiotherapist, dietician, speech and language pathologist is also available as required.
