Residential facilities are designed to enable retired individuals and other elderly people to have a form of independent living, while sharing common interests and access to supportive services.
Retirement residence costs vary and not all services may be included in the basic cost. Some retirement residences offer short stay programs when space permits. The Ontario Retirement Communities Association (ORCA) is a voluntary, non-profit association that accredits retirement residences in Ontario.
Residences have access to physiotherapy services through contracted providers. Clients requiring Physiotherapy services, including Assistive Devices Program (ADP) assessments for basic walker and wheelchair needs, will be able to access this through the contracted provider,
either privately or as part of their service.
In cases where professional services are provided in house, CCAC will only provide physiotherapy services to these clients when the in house therapist or caregivers are not familiar with the treatment such as for an acute need requiring specific expertise.
