Home and Community Care Support Services (HCCSS)
Ontario’s Home and Community Care Support Services (formerly Community Care Access Centres) organizations coordinate in-home and community-based care for thousands of patients across the province every day. Staff at the centres provide information and coordinate professional, personal support and homemaking services for people living in their own homes, and for school children with special needs. HCCSSs also determine eligibility and make arrangements for admission to some day programs, supportive housing/assisted living programs, and to certain chronic care and rehabilitation beds, and to all long-term care facilities.
