Don’t Let Constipation Cramp Your Style: Supporting Long-Term Care Residents Using Best Practices
By Teresa Tibbo RPN, Quality Co-ordinator/Staff Educator, Parkview Manor Health Care Centre continue
Parkview Manor Health Care Centre identified that 19 of its 34 residents were using pharmacological interventions at least once a month to manage constipation.

The challenge was how to decrease the reliance on medications and adopt other non-pharmacological strategies to prevent and manage constipation. continue

Our residents & families say it best view all
This home is like my home. We are well looked after. The friendly, hard-working and hospitable Extendicare team keeps me on my toes. I enjoy socializing in the friendly areas, dining with friends and family, gardening and going out shopping. I love to be busy. I am comfortable here.
We knew from the first day there was something good going on here. Starting with the team of people that welcomed dad into Extendicare and with the care they took to get to know him, his past, his likes and his family, this indeed meant a lot. It was a great comfort.
