Community Care Access Centres provide care to a deserving individual once they have conducted a thorough assessment of the individual’s care needs.
Wait times can be long, and the hours of care determined by CCAC coordinators may be much less than expected by the family or individual who requested care.
If you want to make specific care choices for your loved ones, ASK4CARE offers you the flexibility to choose from a huge array of personal support workers based on “specifics” such as gender, ethnicity, language, experience, and the list goes on….
Private Insurance Plans:
The amount of care an insurance company will provide depends on the insurance policy you have. We urge you to choose your insurance plans wisely and always read and understand their terms so you won’t be disappointed when the time comes to use them.
The workplace safety and insurance board based on severity of the incident and duration of healing advised will pay for support services, when required.
