Hospice Kawartha Lakes

 

More Information

Hospice Kawartha Lakes is a volunteer based, non-profit organization which provides in-home or other residence (i.e. hospital, long-term care, retirement residence, etc.) support throughout the end-of-life process. Bereavement support includes grief support groups and one-to-one support.

What are your admission/referral criteria?

Hospice services are offered free of charge. Self-referrals are accepted.

An assessment and referral from Central East Community Care Access Centre is required to register for the Adult Day Program. We offer a complimentary day for the individual and their primary caregiver to visit a day program before confirming attendance. Please contact Community Care for more information.

HOME FIRST

Promotes safe and timely care, services and supports to meet the needs of clients in the most appropriate setting. The goal is to allow all patients, particularly seniors, to return to their home from hospital safely and to keep them at home, preventing a hospital re-admission. Clients who are in hospital but waiting for long term care placement are also supported to wait at home for placement rather than in the hospital if possible. Funding through Central East Local Health Integration Network for Enhanced Community Support Services is part of Home First. While in hospital, an individual is referred to Community Care by the Central East Community Care Access Centre. They will be assessed for barriers to discharge from hospital and may receive help for a limited period of time with services such as meals, transportation, emergency response, respite and one time expenses such as purchase or rental of mobility equipment. 

Referrals to Home First are made through the CCAC Care Coordinators in the hospital.

Community Care has service offices located in Bobcaygeon (71-D Bolton St.), Fenelon Falls (70 Murray St.) and Lindsay (34 Cambridge St. S., 2nd floor).
