Assisted Living and Supports for Daily Living Programs

 

Assisted Living/Supports for Daily Living programs provide on-site support services to older adults who would like to continue living in their own homes, but require assistance with personal care supports. The programs are available to individuals who live in designated buildings or neighbourhood area (within close geographical proximity to the building). These programs are aimed at older adults with complex needs, and include 24-hour access to frequent, urgent and essential personal care supports.

In partnership with the individual, a Support Service Coordinator develops a customized care plan. The care plan outlines service details and times, based on identified needs and scheduling criteria. Personal support and homemaking services are provided on a pre-scheduled and emergency response basis.

  • Bathing
  • Toileting/washroom assistance
  • Dressing/undressing
  • Medication assistance (limited scope)
  • Transferring/positioning/turning
  • Personal hygiene, mouth and dental care, preventative skin care
  • Meal preparation and meal time support

Note: There are limitations to the types and amounts of assistance based on program eligibility criteria and service maximums.
