Community Supports for Seniors

Integrated care in Dufferin/Caledon

Seniors in the Dufferin/Caledon community can benefit from wraparound care focused on a holistic and equitable approach to care, supporting all aspects of a person’s health. Collaboration between community support organizations allows for improved patient-centred care for everyone who needs it, both in hospital and in the community.

Many people are not aware of the options available to them when their health care needs or circumstances change, and it becomes difficult to manage on their own. If you or someone you know requires care or personal support in their home, whether it is assistance getting back on track after a hospital stay, illness or injury, or support dealing with complex or chronic health conditions, there are options available to get you the care you need, when you need it.
