What is Community Care?
A community care facility provides supportive services for daily living and are intended to help people who need care and support to live with dignity. Individuals who live in community care homes still maintain a level of independence by having their own suites along with a choice of amenities, but they are offered daily support through customized care options depending on their specific needs. These private care facilities provide supportive services for daily living including meals, laundry, housekeeping, hygiene and medication administration to residents – whether due to being elderly, or with physical disabilities or mental illness.
When choosing a community care home it is important to look at the level of social interaction offered in the facility. It has suggested that social interaction helps older individuals stay healthy, active and fit longer. Community care homes should strive to keep individuals engaged with daily activities such as: exercise programs, community outings and gatherings and other fun, engaging and educational opportunities.
Applying to become a resident of a community care home is a private application process between the client and the community care home. Financial assistance may be available for any person who may require it, however; applications may be made under the Social Assistance Act through the Department of Family and Human Services or Social Development.
