Assisted Living Services is a program designed to assist seniors to continue to live in their homes. Services are based on individual needs. This program offers a combination of personal support, homemaking services, security checks and care coordination.
The following are the assisted living services available to eligible seniors:
- Personal support services – including personal hygiene, dressing, assist with mobility, assistance with premeasured medications and reminders and other activities of daily living. These services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on a scheduled and unscheduled basis.
- Security checks or reassurance services – these services shall be provided to address the individual needs of clients based on their clinical condition or environment. You may want to purchase services from a business that gives you a personal alarm to wear, in case of an emergency and cannot reach the phone. These services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on a scheduled and unscheduled basis.
- Care coordination – makes sure all the people who help look after you are working together. Care coordination will link you with other community service’s (e.g. meals on wheels or adult day programs): to care provided by primary health care professionals (e.g. general practitioners, family health teams, geriatric and psychogeriatric services, mental health services): and/or connecting you to agencies providing the equipment you might need, such as a wheelchair, walker or oxygen.
- Homemaking services – including light housecleaning, shopping and meal preparation that are necessary to maintain people in their own homes which they are unable to perform for themselves. These services are available 7 days a week on a scheduled basis and unscheduled basis, (unscheduled requests will be dependent on availability of staff).
