This video is an initiative by the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and the Mississauga Halton Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) to support seniors’ desire to be at home, receiving home care services after they are released from hospital as opposed to languishing in a hospital bed as an alternative level of care (ALC), or being transferred to a long-term nursing facility that does not meet their needs or expectations of appropriate care. This is the sixth and final video in the Health Council’s Innovations in Reducing Wait Times video series.
