NSM CCAC At a Glance
In 2014-15, the North Simcoe Muskoka CCAC brought more care into homes
across our communities than ever before. Nearly 25,000 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 2,400
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.
Everyday, we help people understand care options, get the information they
need to make informed choices and coordinate care delivery for one’s needs or
the needs of a loved one. Every person’s situation is unique, and plans of care
are co-created with each individual, and members of their care team to reflect
their care needs, values and safety. Decisions are made with them and care
goals support getting the care needed to stay well, heal at home, and stay safe
in their home longer.
As the single point of access to supportive care settings, like convalescent care,
assisted living and long-term care, the CCAC also helps transition loved ones to
new care settings when they are needed. When asked about their CCAC care
experience, 96% of patients and caregivers shared that they would recommend
the North Simcoe Muskoka CCAC to family and friends.
