How can we help?
The Healthy Workplaces blog is brought to you by Homewood Human Solutions. We are part of Schlegel Health Care, a family-owned health care organization with a focus on mental health and addictions, employee and family assistance, disability management, and long-term care for older adults. How can we help?
Nationwide EFAP and Disability Programs
Homewood Human Solutions™ offers a one-of-a-kind approach to the market: the highest quality of clinical support and intervention available within the EFAP industry, and an unmatched continuum of services — spanning health promotion, mental health and addictions treatment, and prevention-focused work-life counselling services.
Effective disability management for mental illness must go beyond “managing” disability to include both inpatient and outpatient treatment. Treatment goals must incorporate strategies for successful work reintegration to minimize recurrence and relapse.
The Homewood Disability Treatment Program (HDTP) combines the services available through the Homewood Health Centre – a nationally recognized mental health and addiction treatment centre with the best national network of skilled mental health and addiction treatment professionals through Homewood Human SolutionsTM.
Nationally recognized mental health and addiction facilities
Homewood Health Centre is Canada’s unsurpassed medical leader in addiction and mental health treatment, providing highly specialized psychiatric services to all Canadians. We are a 312-bed, Schedule 1 facility under the Ontario Mental Health Act. We operate nine programs treating a range of mental health and addiction issues.
Homewood Health Centre is located in Guelph, Ontario.
Continuum of care facilities for older adults (long-term care and retirement homes)
Schlegel Villages are designed, built and managed by the Schlegel family of Kitchener, Ontario. Our motto: “It Takes a Village to Care” lives on.
Canadian owned and operated, our Villages benefit from the Schlegel family having over 40 years of direct experience co-owning, managing and operating Long Term Care and Retirement Communities in Ontario. There are eleven Schlegel Villages housing approximately 2500 seniors. Each Village has a Long Term Care component, with Full Service Retirement Living, Assisted Care, Memory Care and Independent Living options being added in stages. The first Schlegel Village opened in 1998 in Guelph.
