Community Care Access Centres (CCAC)
South East Community Care Access Centre Community Care Access Centres (CCAC) is funded and legislated by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Your CCAC connects you with the care you need, at home and in your community:
  • Stay in your own home longer by providing Care in Your Home and by coordinating Care in Your Community, including specialized support services;
  • Information about Long-Term Care Options if it becomes too difficult for you to live independently at home.

CCACs are staffed by caring and knowledgeable professionals who will assess your needs, determine your requirements for care, answer your questions and develop a customized care plan that meets your individual needs. Then, if services are provided to you by your CCAC, we’ll arrange for quality health-care professionals – nurses, physiotherapists, social workers, registered dietitians, occupational therapists, speech therapist and personal support workers – to provide care and supportive services to help support you at home and help you enjoy the best possible quality of life.

Note that there is generally a fee associated with community services. Subsidies are available based on eligibility requirements. Your CCAC Case Manager can explain what services are covered by the CCAC and which have a fee, and how to apply for subsidies.
