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.
Virtual Meetings: A Guide for Patients and Families
A "virtual meeting" is just like a regular appointment with your LHIN contact. However, the only difference is that you see and talk to your LHIN contact on a computer or phone screen by using the Internet. To protect your privacy and ensure you are informed about virtual meetings, please review this information sheet.
