Community Care Access Centres (CCAC) is the link to care in Ontario. This arm of the Ministry of Health and Long Term care is your best chance for getting government paid for services. However, as our population ages and the demands on this system are stretched, qualifying for these services is becoming more and more difficult.
There are a number of service arms within the system but the gate keeper is the case worker at CCAC. They have access to the various services which include
In Home Care
Long Term Care Placement
Adult Day Care
It is important that you identify what services you require and people who live alone are considered more vulnerable and access to services may be greater.
