Halton Chapter's January Meetings with CCAC in Review

Information posted February 2, 2014

For our February Community meetings in Milton and Burlington we invited the Community Care Access Centre of Mississauga/Halton (CCAC) to present “Your Gateway to the Health Care System.” We welcomed speaker Bobbi Greenberg to both meetings who gave an in depth presentation on how the health care system works for those who receive this care outside of the hospital environment.

CCAC’s main services are to:

  • Help Patients leave hospital for home
  • Help patients leave hospital earlier to recover at home
  • Help residents with high health care needs remain at home
  • Facilitate all aspects of long-term care process
  • Help patients die at home, with dignity
  • Connect residents with family doctor
  • Help children with health care needs
  • Provide Information and referral to services in the community services

To see the presentation please click this link: CARP BG Jan 28 This is Bobbi’s presentation to the Burlington meeting but is essentially the same as that given at Milton.

Despite the bitterly cold weather we had an excellent turn out for our Burlington meeting with approximately 120 members and friends in attendance. There were much smaller numbers in Milton however those in attendance at both meetings had many questions and prompted a very lively discussion.
