Tell us how we're doing!
Home and Community Care Support Services Toronto Central's vision is outstanding care – every person, every day. While we aim to provide the best possible care, we also want to provide the best possible service. We want to know how we are doing and welcome feedback — compliments, concerns, or other inquiries. Compliments and critique both help us continually improve our programs and services. We work very hard to resolve any client complaint as promptly as possible. If you have a specific concern about your care, or the service being provided please contact our Client Service Center at 416-506-9888. If your situation is not resolved satisfactorily, you can ask the service centre to help you connect with:
1. Your Care Coordinator
Your Care Coordinator is most familiar with your specific situation and will work with you, your family, and/or your caregiver to respond to your concern. Most client concerns are successfully resolved by talking directly with the Care Coordinator. You should expect a return call within 1 business day.
If you're not completely satisfied with the resolution after speaking with your Care Coordinator, please:
2. Speak with your Care Coordinator's Manager
If your concern remains unresolved after speaking with your Care Coordinator, call the Client Service Centre and ask to speak to the your Care Coordinator's Manager. Managers will do their best to find a resolution by working with you, your family, and/or your caregiver - as well as your Care Coordinator. The Manager will return your call within 1 business day.
If you're not completely satisfied with the resolution after speaking with the Manager, please.
3. Speak with the Manager's Director
If your concern is unresolved after working with your Care Coordinator's Manager, please ask for the Manager's Director. The Director will do their best to find a resolution by working with you, your family, and/or your caregiver as well as the Manager and Care Coordinator.
Our Care Coordinators and Managers resolve the vast majority of concerns and rarely do concerns escalate to our Directors. However, should your concern have escalated to the Director and the resolution was not to your satisfaction, you should raise your concern toa) Client Experience Office, b) the Long-Term Care Action Line or c) The Health Services Appeal and Review Board (HSARB) as appropriate:

B) Long-Term Care Action Line
The Long-Term Care Action Line, is a service provided by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.

C) The Health Services Appeal and Review Board (HSARB)
