Home and Community Care

Home care serves individuals of all ages with a wide range of health problems and disabilities at home, school and at work. Home health care services may be purchased directly by an individual, covered by private insurance plans or publicly funded. In Ontario, Community Care Access Centres handle publicly funded home health care. Assisted living programs provide support, including equipment and medical supplies, so that people may live independently in their own homes for as long as possible.

Hiring someone to provide home services or care is an important decision. The Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has information to answer your questions and help you find the right kind of care in your community: http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/public/programs/ltc/default.aspx.

Do you have difficulty moving throughout your home or community? Do you live on your own and worry that you will have a medical emergency when no one is around? Watch Home Safe Home to learn how to connect with services that can help.
