Brochures and Publications
Looking for information about home and community care?
On June 7, 2017, home and community care services and staff transitioned from the Central Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to the Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). LHINs plan, integrate and fund local health care. Now, in their expanded role, LHINs deliver and coordinate home and community care. The transition to the LHIN is an administrative change and does not impact the care provided to patients.
The information below is still accurate and is a vital resource for patients and caregivers. We will update the content soon to reflect the new role of the Central LHIN.
The following brochures and publications provide important information about home and community care services, including several useful resources for patients and caregivers.
We provide care and services to patients returning home after a hospital stay. We also help people of all ages explore and choose from a wide range of health and social services, so they can live independently at home for as long as possible.
