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.
