Service Information
Description (Service) Halton Region Services for Seniors offers an Assisted Living Program (Supports for Daily Living) which provide in-home or on-site personal support for daily living by qualified staff. Wellness promotion is a key component of the program. The goal is to provide support for seniors to encourage long-term, independent living in their own apartments in assisted living communities.  
 
The program is designed to support high risk seniors, aged 65+ who have complex needs and who are medically stable. 
These services are currently available to individuals who: 
* live in their own private home, or within a residential setting such as an apartment building  
* demonstrate a need for daily access to personal support services throughout a 24 hour period (with or without homemaker services) on a frequent basis 
* are able to direct their own care or have a substitute decision maker or a live-in caregiver to direct care 
* are able to communicate their needs (with or without aides)  
 
Professional services such as nursing are provided through the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). The Support Services Coordinator for the Assisted Living Program and the CCAC Care Coordinator work closely together to ensure that the seniors' needs are met.
