Home supports can help seniors who have difficulty managing daily tasks such as dressing and bathing or who need extra help with meal preparation and light housekeeping stay in their homes and maintain their independence. Most agencies offering home support providers also provide relief/respite care to allow caregivers to take a break. Some agencies also provide assistance with banking and shopping.

Have your service needs evaluated by Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) staff first in case some or part of the care is covered by OHIP. If you do not qualify for CCAC-provided home support services, or if you want more hours or have been placed on a waiting list, you can contact directly the agencies listed here to arrange for services.

Rates range from approximately $6 – $28 per hour and may vary depending on the service provided. There may be subsidies available. Some agencies require a minimum number of hours to be scheduled. Rates and criteria are subject to change so it is best to contact the service provider directly to confirm details.

For nursing care, contact CCAC. Find more information about palliative or end of life care, or assistive devices.
