Mississauga, ON - Mississauga Halton Community Care Access Centre’s
2014/15 Annual Report to the Community - The Power of Care Coordination
– Advisor, Advocate and Coach, highlights the key roles our experienced,
care coordinators, play in the lives of their patients.
“Each care coordinator is an advisor, health advocate and coach for their
patients – and often for families too. They continually monitor their patients’
health to respond - if and - when their patients’ care needs change,” says
Caroline Brereton, CEO, Mississauga Halton CCAC.
“Every day, they use their clinical judgment and assessment skills to support
patients with increasingly complex care needs. Our care coordinators talk
with - and listen to – their patients and develop a personalized care plan
that is unique for every individual, based on each patient’s health and social
needs,” explains Ms. Brereton.
The Mississauga Halton CCAC coordinates in-home and community support
services, information and referral, and long-term care placement. It is
funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through the
Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network and serves a population
of more than one million residents in the communities of South Etobicoke,
Mississauga, Oakville, Halton Hills, Georgetown and Milton.
