Supporting More People with Higher Care Needs
As Ontario's population ages and people's needs are more diverse, our healthcare system is evolving to better address the burden of chronic disease, the reality of age-related health challenges, and help people to maintain their independence.
Increasingly, the Champlain CCAC is supporting more clients with higher care needs at home and in the community—a 36% increase of high needs clients in 2013-2014.
