Most seniors want to continue living at home, whether it is in a private home, condominium complex, an apartment or other living arrangements. The Assisted Living Services Program is the result of The Aging at Home Strategy developed by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. This strategy works towards matching the needs of seniors and their caregivers with the appropriate local support services and avoid the unnecessary loss of independence and dignity due to premature admission to higher care long-term care homes or hospitals. The Aging at Home Strategy is of critical importance, both for its potential to improve the lives of Ontario seniors, and also because it will help ensure the sustainability of the overall health system.

Arnprior Regional Health developed a program to offer support services for the Town of Arnprior through a partnership with the Community Care Access Centre (CCAC). This program delivers personal support and homemaking services to help seniors continue to live in their homes independently. These services are provided day, evening /night, seven days a week, 52 weeks of the year.

Some of the services offered are: personal support (dressing, help with bathing, personal hygiene, nail care and hair washing); reminders to take medications and arranging attendance at medical appointments; shopping and other activities (light housekeeping, meal preparation and laundry).

This program is operated by Arnprior Regional Health and coordinated by the Grove Nursing Home and designed as one of several community outreach services operated by the Grove.

The CCAC will be the first point of contact for an individual to determine eligibility to this program. You may contact Kathleen Nunn 613-623-5304 x294
