RECENT CHANGES RELATED TO HOME AND COMMUNITY CARE
On May 31, 2017, home and community care services and staff transitioned from the Central West Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to the Central West 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 West LHIN.
In an effort to make all our information available when you need it, and to offer "green" alternatives to mailing out printed materials, we are pleased to offer our brochures and information sheets in printable format.

Planning for Long-Term Care
Most people prefer to live in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by familiar people and belongings. But like the various transitions that come with every stage and age of life, there may come a time when you need to consider a long-term care home. Whether you are asking this question yourself or for a family member or friend, we are available to support you through your decision-making process.
Health Care Connect
The Health Care Connect program refers people without a regular primary care provider to family doctors and nurse practitioners who are accepting new patients in their community.
