December 18, 2015

The Central East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) is introducing informational videos in collaboration with their Long-Term Care Home partners, to help patients and families as they plan for the future. The videos offer a glimpse of each of the Long-Term Care Homes in the Central East region, which includes homes in the Scarborough, Durham Region, Northumberland, Peterborough, Trent Hills, Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton areas. Each video includes a preview of the exterior of the homes, the types of accommodations available and some of the special features that each home offers. Lisa Mizzi, Program Director at the Central East CCAC says "The virtual tours of Central East's 68 Long Term Care homes will increase the public's ability to view the homes, especially for those who are not able to physically get out and tour. It is anticipated that the virtual tours will assist the public in their decision making when long-term care is being considered."
