Assisted Living Service
Assisted living Services is a much needed program at St. Clair O’Connor Community with over 25 residents requiring our assistance with their “activities of daily living”. The level of care continues to increase as our older adults are aging “in place” and we strive to keep them in their “homes” for as long as possible. The service is provided 24 hours per day and is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and the Toronto Central LHIN.
Admission to the Assisted Living Services program is available to existing SCOC residents only. It is intended to give residents that extra care that is required to continue to live independently. The assistance is provided by either the ALS Coordinator or Personal Support Worker. Referrals will be accepted from residents, their family member, SCOC staff or The Toronto Central LHIN (CCAC).
All applicants to the Assisted Living Services Program will have an Inter-RAI-CHA assessment completed by the SCOC ALS Coordinator. Pertinent personal information will also be collected and the applicant will be photographed for identification purposes. A care plan will be compiled for each resident to ensure that the care and services required are tailored to each individual’s needs. The plan of care will be revised as the resident’s needs change.
SCOC works closely with GeriatRX Pharmacy, the LHIN, the Psychogeriatric team from Michael Garron Hospital (TEGH) and the CNIB.
