Making a Referral

If you have a patient with an acute or chronic care need that is not met with current treatment and supports, we can provide a variety of services to facilitate care in the home and the community. We also assess and determine eligibility for long-term care and respite care.

To make a referral to us, download our referral form. For Long-Term care referrals, complete both the referral form AND a Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Health Assessment Form 4768-69E (2015/01). These Health Assessment forms were introduced by the Ministry in 2015, and are also available on their website directly.
