Families can now view and assess regional long-term care residences from the comfort of home. The Mississauga Halton Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) launched a new website — http://mhccac-ltc.com — featuring video tours of the region's 27 long-term care homes. The website also includes costs and wait-list information that will help patients and their families make informed decisions when selecting their top five choices.

"The videos provide an apples-to-apples video tour of each home, focusing on accommodations, features, activities, faith and language preferences," says Caroline Brereton, CEO, Mississauga Halton CCAC. And, many questions come up when selecting a long-term care home. "Our long-term care website answers most of those questions to help patients and families make well-informed decisions," Brereton explains.

The Mississauga Halton CCAC coordinates in-home and community support services, information and referral, and long-term care placement. It is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and serves a population of more than one-million residents in the communities of South Etobicoke, Mississauga, Oakville, Haltom Hills and Milton. The Mississauga Halton CCAC is funded through the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (MH LHIN).
