CCACs are local non-profit community agencies that provide simplified access to home and community care. CCACs can help you to live independently in your own home for as long as possible.
For example, your CCAC case manager can help to coordinate in-home services, including nursing, personal support (help with bathing, dressing, etc.), physiotherapy, occupational therapy, social work, nutritional counselling, medical supplies and equipment. In addition to these in-home supports, your CCAC case manager can tell you about other local community services that could help you or your caregiver.
CCAC is also your single point of access for admission to a long-term care home. You cannot apply directly. Your CCAC case manager can provide information about long-term care homes, other housing alternatives, such as supportive/assistive housing, retirement homes and seniors’ apartments, and financial options. Your case manager will assess your eligibility for admission to a long-term care home and help you with the application process.
