This treatment focuses on a holistic, client-centered approach. The unique needs and values of our clients, their family members, our peers and community members are respected. Empowerment is at the root of our treatment plan in order for our clients to obtain knowledge and independence in a timely manner. We hold a strong commitment to collaboration with professionals within the circle of care of each client.
Open since 2010, the lymphedema management center was renamed in 2020 to the lymphatic health center in order to capture it's full scope of practice. Swelling Solutions is the first of its kind in the Waterloo-Wellington region. Lead by a Registered Nurse, the experienced health care professionals are raising the bar for chronic swelling treatment and lymphatic rehabilitation measures in Southern Ontario.
