Long-Term Care (Nursing Homes)
Waterloo Wellington CCAC (WWCCAC) gets people the care they need to stay well, heal at home and stay safely in their home longer, When home is no longer an option, we help people make the transition to other living arrangements.
Long-term Care Home
Long-term care homes are residential homes that provide ongoing care to patients whose care needs cannot be met in the community. People may require this level of support due to advancing age, disability or declining health.
If your care needs becomes too difficult for you and your supports to manage on your own, you can explore care and services available through CCAC. If you need assistance with specific daily activities such as bathing, cooking or decreasing ability to walk safely there may be services that could assist you to stay home with supports in your home or within your community. But if you determine that your needs cannot be met in your home with supports your CCAC Care Coordinator can assist you with planning for other options such as Long Term Care.
