As a vital component of the care provided, all admissions will be seen by a Medical Practitioner within 12-hours of admissions and will be assessed for acute symptoms of chronic conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, along with other minor conditions.

As a medical facility, Well Care offers interventions, as required, while the program address their other chronic health conditions.
