Fostering a supportive housing environment
If you are a senior or disabled adult living at home in Scarborough and you need on-going assistance with activities of daily living, this program may be for you. Supportive Housing is designed to provide you with a comprehensive plan of personal support and homemaking assistance. The program is flexible and is designed to compliment any assistance you may be already receiving from friends, family members and peers.

The program provides assistance in the following areas:

      Personal Support
  • showering/bed bath
  • mouth care
  • hair care
  • preventative skin care
  • assisting in transfers/positioning
  • exercises
  • dressing/undressing
  • assistance with eating

  • reassurance checks
      Essential Homemaking
  • light house keeping
  • laundry
  • ironing
  • mending
  • meal planning
  • shopping
  • making beds

How does the program work?

First, we visit you along with your family and/or caregiver to assess your specific needs. Then, together we develop a personalized Care Plan for you. As part of your Care Plan we set up a schedule of regular visits by our Community Support Workers (CSWs), who help look after your needs. You will also receive regular visits by the Program Manager to ensure your plan is running smoothly. The CSWs provide regular feedback to the Program Manager to ensure that changes are made in your Care Plan to meet your changing needs.

This Supportive Housing Program is provided at a designated location in Scarborough.

 Is there a fee?
There are no fees for the services offered by the Supportive Housing Program.
