Outside Care for Seniors in Mississauga
Tuesday Aug 08th, 2017Share
In a recent blog post, I shared typical medical and safety services often offered in Mississauga retirement communities. However, there are instances when residents may need to seek care outside the scope of what a retirement home can offer, sometimes in the form of home hired care or one-on-one care.
Luckily, for seniors living in Mississauga, there's a range of outside care options. Two of the area's largest and most advanced hospitals – Credit Valley Hospital and Trillium Health Centre – offer a range of outpatient programs and clinics with the referral of a physician.
There are also many health, support and safety services available through organizations, like:
• Community Care Access Centre (CCAC)
• Public Health Agency of Canada Aging & Seniors
• Region of Peel Health Services
• Cardiac Care Network
• Assistive Devices Program
• Alzheimer Society of Peel
• Canadian Mental Health Association
• Peel Senior Link
• Ontario Drug Benefit Program
In cases where residents need outside care, most retirement communities will arrange for access to additional health and safety services as needed.
