Description (Service) Service acts as a bridge in the transition of client specific care needs and management strategies across systems of care.

Service provides a transition plan focused on reducing the responsive behaviours so that the individual can successfully move from one living situation to another. The person may be living in their own home or with family, be resident in hospital or LTC or other supportive housing with plans to move to alternative accommodation.

A behaviour nurse works with the client, family and all care partners in the clients current environment and their destination environment.
