Are you a senior living in Toronto?
Or perhaps you are a caregiver helping an aging loved one?
The services CAH provides to seniors in the community can include:
Adult Day Program (ADP Toronto)
CAH Adult Day Program offers physical and cognitive activation and socialization programming offered in French five days a week to seniors in Toronto. Professional recreationists ensure a welcoming and safe environment in which clients can enjoy their day.
Adult Day Program (ADP Oshawa)
CAH Adult Day Program in Oshawa offers physical and cognitive activation and socialization programming in French three days a week to seniors in Durham Region. Professional recreationists ensure a welcoming and safe environment in which clients can enjoy their day.
The Homemaking program delivered entirely in French, is designed for seniors in Toronto who have difficulty performing certain tasks in their daily lives. Eligibility for this program is determined through a standardized assessment of the needs of people aged 55+ experiencing a decline in physical and/or cognitive autonomy. This assessment identifies the level of assistance required by clients in their home or apartment, in order to continue to live safely in their own environment.
Reintegration Care Unit (RCU)
The new Reintegration Care Unit responds to the needs of hospitalized seniors who no longer require the intensive resources and services of a hospital but cannot safely return home immediately due to a lack of adequate support services.
Case Management (CM)
The role of CAH’s case managers is to help clients navigate effectively through the health system and community support services and guide them towards the appropriate services, whether these are CAH services or other services in the community that can meet their needs. All CAH clients benefit from Case Management services. Following a formal, standardized client assessment, case managers develop an individualized care plan together with the clients themselves and their caregivers. Case managers can also assist the Francophone community to learn about other support services available to them. They can help Francophones access and apply for social, financial, legal and immigration services.
Centre for Active Living (CAL)
The Centre for Active Living manages French activities for seniors in the Toronto community, organized within CAH building (33 Hahn Place, Toronto). It also organizes outings led in French within the community. In normal time, its publication, La Gazette, present monthly calendars of activities. As all have been cancelled in times of COVID-19, The Gazette currently offers special editions to break the feeling of isolation.
