SWLHIN Care Coordinators can make referrals through Health Partner Gateway (HPG) using the SWLHIN Referral forms. If possible, please include medical verification of the brain injury/stroke as this assists us to move toward an offer of services more quickly. If this is not possible we will work with the applicant to obtain this information.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
We will determine suitability for our services by reviewing the document verifying brain injury/stroke. If you have not been able to provide this information we will contact the client to obtain consent to obtain the necessary medical records. We may place the client on a wait list, depending on which services they are applying for. The next step will be a needs assessment, in which we will meet with the client, and their care partners and professionals if applicable, to determine which of our services best meet their needs and to offer services as soon as we have a space available.
SWLHIN Care Coordinators associated with your hospital can make a referral, as indicated in the SWLHIN Care Coordinator section. Alternatively, please submit an ‘Application for Service’ by filling out this link or by faxing it to: (519) 434-6532 or emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If able to send medical records along with the application, it will speed up the process, if unable to do so we will work with the client to obtain consent and request medical records
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The Application for your client will be reviewed and services offered as soon as possible if our services are required in order to assist your client to transition from hospital to home successfully. We will contact the referral source as well as the applicant to set up a needs assessment in order to identify which of our services would mostly likely benefit the applicant and will work with the applicant and your team to organize services. Your client may be placed on a wait list if services are not required or available immediately.
