Community Care Access Centre
A Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) focuses on serving individuals who are looking for ongoing care. Each CCAC is staffed with caring and knowledgeable professionals who will assess your needs, determine your care requirements and answer questions. They develop a customized care plan that could include in-home care, community support services, or long-term care recommendations. For more information, visit the CCAC website.
