ANFHT provides a variety of preventative and educational programs.
Each program is presented by an ANFHT health care professional and is available to all rostered patients.
Palliative Care Program – Advanced Care Planning
We have designed this program to assist our patients who have a chronic, life limiting illness. This program helps us advocate our patient’s wishes and to maintain their Quality of Life. We hope to help manage symptoms at all stages of life.
Postpartum Education Program – Breastfeeding Program
We provide education and support around breastfeeding, and aim to optimize continuity of care, decrease stress or anxiety around breastfeeding while increasing accessibility to support through home visits and virtual visits.
An information session is held along with individual follow up sessions as needed. The program connects caregivers with community resources for support and strategies to manage stress and improve self care.
Our Occupation Therapist will complete a falls risk assessment to identify patients 65+ at risk for falls and to provide appropriate intervention to the identified patients in order to reduce future risk of falling.
This program is offered to both males and females in our practice and provides education and counselling on sexually transmitted infections (STI), provides early access to STI testing and treatment of confirmed infections and sexual dysfunction. This program also provides in-depth contraceptive counselling to female/couples, and early point of care pregnancy testing if requested.
We offer smoking cessation treatment and counselling to our patients who wish to quit smoking. Our approach is to use innovative means and various methods to assist patients to become non-smokers and to bring awareness to the health benefits of smoking cessation.
