New in 2023 - more of a good thing! We're taking our much-loved RN-led programs for well baby/child and cervical screening (Pap) and expanding them! These popular programs are favourites among patients so we've built on that great foundation.
Read here about our expanded Well-Woman Care, Prenatal Care and new services coming for Sexual Health & Contraceptive Care and Perimenopause/Menopause Care. Until our new services are rolled out. THFHT patients can continue to book Well Baby/Child, Well-Women & Pap tests .
THFHT patients can now book a screening and prevention appointments.
Screening: Book a screening appointment with a Registered Nurse who will coordinate age-appropriate cancer and non-cancer screening tests to THFHT patients aged 50 to 75 years.
Prevention: Book coaching appointments with a Health Promoter/ Coach for individualized sessions on healthy living to THFHT adult patients over 18 years.
Now Available! At THFHT we like to do everything we can to support patients to live healthy happy lives in their own homes and sometimes people need a bit of help to do that. So we've created a program to provide specialized RN care to older THFHT patients.
Services will depend on what individuals need and may include help with medications, chronic disease management, or new problems like wounds or infections. We will also connect people to existing local services like the Northumberland Community Paramedic Home Visit program, Community Care Northumberland, or the Kawartha Centre for Healthy Aging.
Continued in 2023/2024!
RNs specialized in oncology care and cancer survivorship meet with THFHT patients to provide support, post-treatment symptom management and navigation of follow-up appointments and repeat screening tests. The Cancer Survivorship program focuses on support and system navigation to patients newly diagnosed with cancer and patients who have finished having regular oncology treatments and appointments.
As long as you are a THFHT patient, you do not require a provider referral.
THFHT provides a mental health system help line for any resident living in Trent Hills.
A Mental Health Coordinator is now available Monday to Friday 9-4:30 pm to help anyone in the Trent Hills Community (THFHT patient or not) find mental health care services. Our team will be working from a directory of services available in Trent Hills, Northumberland and beyond to help people access the care they need, when they need it.
THFHT provides mental health workshops and services to THFHT patients.
Services Include individual or group sessions to support your mental health, assistance with completing forms for financial and government support such as Ontario Works and Ontario Disability or referrals to community agencies and services.
Workshops focus on strategies and techniques to support better management of mental health and well-being and are centred on a variety of topics including Anxiety Management, Mindfulness, Cognitive Restructuring (Think Well, Be Well) and more.
Coming Soon! After analyzing data for over 12,000 patients we've identified that heart and lung conditions rank as the most common health issues. So in 2023/2024 we are building a brand new program to support patients with heart and lung health.
This RN-led program will help patients to manage their blood pressure and cholesterol, teach self-monitoring in conditions like congestive heart failure (CHF) and atrial fibrillation (AFIB), and assist with keeping screening and monitoring up to date. Watch here for details.
Coming Soon! Another group of issues that are very common in Trent Hills are joint, back and muscle pain and sometimes weakness.
At THFHT we've decided to prioritize joint and muscle health and to connect people to care and interventions that can improve mobility and function, reduce pain and increase quality of life and experience.
Our program team includes RNs, NPs, Nutrition Coaches and Personal Trainers. We will connect people to existing local services like Community Care Northumberland Wellness or the Canadian Arthritis Society as well as delivering some of our own content. Watch here for details.

THFHT formally recognizes the traditional keepers of this land and, specifically our neighbours of the Alderville First Nation, with a formal territorial acknowledgement. We reside on the Gunshot Treaty Lands of 1788. On these lands and on the shores of the big lake, the Mississauga Anishinabeg
(A-NISH-IN-NAW-BEK) met with the Crown to facilitate the opening of these lands for settlement. Let us be reminded of the responsibility we all have in making sure that we respect these lands and waters that give us life and sustain our livelihoods.
