Engaging Our Communities

Community engagement is an essential function and core value of Home and Community Care Support Services.

Home and Community Care Support Services North Simcoe Muskoka is one of 14 Home and Community Care Support Services organizations in Ontario with a focused mandate to deliver local health care services such as home and community care and long-term care home placement.

These organizations were previously known as Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) at a time when they also led local health care planning and funding, and those functions are now part of Ontario Health.

Home and Community Care Support Services is dedicated to ensuring the ongoing delivery of local services while Ontario makes changes to improve the health care system to give patients better connected care with health care providers working as one coordinated team in Ontario Health Teams.

Our name has changed but services and contact information remain the same, including home and community care, long-term care home placement and help finding services and local doctors.

A dedicated Board of Directors will be cross-appointed to the 14 Home and Community Care Support Services organizations to keep a strong watch on services continuity across the province and will be held accountable by the Ministry of Health.
