With significant snowfall affecting many parts of the province, Home and Community Care Support Services is making every effort to maintain continuity of patient care, as well as consider the safety of home care workers.
Depending on weather conditions, delays, postponements or cancellation of home visits may occur in some areas. Patients will be notified by their service provider about changes to their scheduled care appointment. Those who wish to cancel or reschedule their visit should contact their service provider directly or contact our access line at 310-2222 (no area code needed).
During this weather event, patients with scheduled nursing care clinic appointments should call the clinic before leaving home. Also, should patients wish to cancel or reschedule their appointments please call the clinic.
Given the unpredictable weather, we encourage patients to consider affirming or activating their back-up plans for care in case they are needed.
We anticipate regular service will resume as quickly as possible once the storm has cleared and conditions are safe for travel.
We thank our patients and families in advance for their patience during this challenging time. And finally, a reminder, in case of a medical emergency, please call 911.
