Osler and Bayshore Partner to Support Senior Patients at Home

William Osler Health System (Osler) is pleased to partner with Bayshore HealthCare Integrated Care Solutions (Bayshore) to continue to extend patient-inspired health care beyond its hospital walls with the Osler@Home program.
The Osler@Home program helps older adults who no longer require care in hospital to transition home safely by providing up to 16 weeks of care in their homes. The services are delivered by an integrated Bayshore team, supported by Osler staff and the program began accepting patient referrals from Osler on April 24, 2023.
Osler staff at Brampton Civic and Etobicoke General Hospitals identify and meet with eligible patients and their families to discuss enrollment in the Osler@Home program, ensuring that patients know how it will benefit them. Staff from Osler and Bayshore work in partnership with patients to create a customized care plan for each patient, to support a seamless hospital discharge and a continuous care experience at home.
The program aids patient recovery while helping address hospital capacity challenges, particularly among seniors who may become Alternate Level of Care (ALC) patients – no longer needing the specialty of hospital services, but who still require support to recover successfully at home.
“The Osler@Home program aligns with Osler’s Vision to provide patient-inspired health care without boundaries,” said Clint Atendido, Vice President, Clinical Services, William Osler Health System. “We are proud to partner with Bayshore HealthCare Integrated Solutions to bring this innovative program to our patients, and support recovery at home with the expert care of Bayshore staff, supported by Osler.”
“We are thrilled to partner with William Osler Health System to provide patients and families in the Brampton and North Etobicoke community with timely access to quality health care services in the comfort of their home,” said Danielle Holler, Regional Director, Bayshore HealthCare Integrated Care Solutions. “Providing these services supports patient-centred care and also helps decrease ALC rates in our local hospitals.”
