Making a Referral

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 MOH-LTC in the spring of 2015 and are also available on their website directly.
