Ontario's 14 Community Care Access Centres (CCACs), located across the province, are members of the OACCAC. Each CCAC gets people the home and community care they need in their region.
These regions are aligned with the boundaries of the province's Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs), facilitating seamless and comprehensive delivery of care.
Every Ontario community has a wide variety of organizations offering home and community care service and supports. CCACs bring all of these services together, enabling people to get the specialized blend of the health-care services they need - where they need it, and when they need it.
Last year, CCACs supported over 653,000 people receiving care in homes and communities across Ontario, including:
- Seniors who want to stay in their homes and live independently
- Younger adults and children with health-care issues or injuries, including people with chronic diseases
- Patients requiring services from a family physician or nurse practitioner
- Patients whose needs are better met by community care than in hospital or long-term care
In addition to getting people care in their homes and, where necessary, supporting transition to long-term care homes, CCACs also connect people to adult day programs, assisted living and complex care and rehabilitation beds.
