Long Term Care - Older Adults

One’s ability to live safely and independently is important. In order to do so, an individual must be able to perform the basic tasks of daily life, including cooking, eating, toileting and bathing, manage medications, take transportation, as well as maintain a safe and healthy environment. These capabilities may change, decrease, or become more challenging with age, and if an older adult can no longer care for themselves independently, long-term care options are available. Long-term care includes both medical and non-medical services and can be provided in a senior’s own home, at service centres in your community, or at live-in facilities such as nursing homes. Are you concerned that an aging loved one can no longer care for themselves? Would you like to know what resources are available within your neighbourhood to provide long-term care? Are you looking for resources for yourself to help keep you living in your own home? We know how important it is for you, or your loved ones, to receive proper long term care and treatment, and we have the help and resources you may need.

You are not alone. Connect with others who may be going through the same thing, find professional help and resources near you. The Kinjunxion community is here to help.
