Home and Community Care Support Services Central West

Home and Community Care Support Services Central West

We assess patient care needs, and deliver in-home and community-based services to support your health and well-being. We also provide access and referrals to other community services, and manage Ontario’s long-term care home placement process. Older adults can connect with local programs and services that provide support, health care, and recreational and social opportunities designed for seniors.

    We collaborate with primary care providers, hospitals, Ontario Health Teams and many other health system partners to support high-quality, integrated care planning and delivery.

    We help patients, their families and caregivers when they need services, support and guidance to:

    -Remain safely at home with the support of health and other care professionals
    -Return home from hospital and recover at home
    -Find a family doctor or nurse practitioner
    -Find community services that support healthy, independent living
    -Transition to long-term care or supportive housing
    -Die with dignity in the setting of their choice

    In addition to our role and responsibilities to provide home and community care services, we are important health system partners actively collaborating and managing emergency response activities such as pandemic response and community, hospital and long-term care home evacuations needed in moments of unforeseen natural disasters such as floods and forest fires.
