SENIORS' SERVICES

Assisted Living

Carebridge Assisted Living services can bring peace of mind to individuals and their families.

The North Lanark Assisted Living Program is a community-based health care service. It provides eligible seniors with the personal support services needed to allow them to continue living on their own (or with an informal caregiver) for as long as possible.

Carebridge coordinated and delivers this program in consultation with Almonte General Hospital and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital.

Assisted Living services can bring peace of mind to individuals and their families. The services are delivered when they are needed – anytime, day, evening or overnight.

Who can participate?

These services are currently available to frail, older individuals with chronic conditions, 65 years of age or older who:

  • Live in their own private home or within a residential setting such as an apartment building but cannot live safely with current formal and/or informal supports.
  • Demonstrate a need for daily access to personal support services throughout a 24-hour period (may or may not require homemaking services).
  • 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 aids).
  • Are medically stable (medical and professional needs can be met by Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), family physician or other community providers).
  • Pose no risk to themselves or others.
How will persons be referred and admitted to Assisted Living services?

Priority will be given to:

  • Hospitalized high-risk seniors

  • Clients in long-term care that could live at home with Assisted Living Services

  • High-risk seniors living in the community in imminent need of a higher level of care and who are at risk of hospitalization or admission to long-term care

  • High-risk seniors who are frequent users of emergency room and hospital services
