CCAC Care Profile
Every day, people of all ages in communities across the province, including medically fragile children, individuals with chronic conditions and those who want to die at home with dignity are receiving care from Community Care Access Centres (CCACs) that enables them to stay safely at home for as long as possible.
In 2015-16, the North Simcoe Muskoka CCAC brought more care into homes across our communities than ever before. Over 25,600 people got the care they needed by the CCAC care team, and of these people, 14,500 were seniors 65 years of age and older. CCAC care experienced in the home touched 2,570 people on an average day.
These were people of all ages, across the region, who received care coordination, nursing, personal support, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, speech and language therapy, and social work from our dedicated team of health professionals.
