Quinte Health Care is Enhancing Care for Seniors
One of Quinte Health Care's goals is to enhance care for seniors. By enhancing care for seniors at QHC, together we can support the overall well-being of the hospitalized elderly patient, reduce the potential negative effects of hospitalization and support aging well at home.

Quinte Health Care is committed to visitor, patient and staff accessibility as outlined in the Accessibility Standards for Customer Service Ontario Regulation 429/07.
Complex Continuing Care
Located at Trenton Memorial Hospital, the Complex Continuing Care (CCC) unit provides time-limited, in-hospital care for the patient with complex medical conditions, as well as those requiring restorative care.
Behavioural Supports Transition Unit (BSTU)
A regional inpatient program for adults living with dementia or other age-related cognitive impairments who need enhanced resources to manage responsive behaviours.
Acute Care for Elderly (ACE)
ACE is a philosophy of care and aims to address the needs of the elderly beyond the acute presenting illness to enhance (or prevent the decline of) cognitive and physical functioning so that they can return to an equivalent care setting after they have been discharged from hospital.
