Learn about home and community care at health expo

The South East Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) is presenting a Home Health Care Expo at the Crystal Palace in Picton from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, June 25.

“As our population ages and age related conditions rise, a strong home and community care sector will be a critical part of a sustainable health care system. The Home Health Care Expo will give the public the opportunity to learn about services available in their communities,” said Jacqueline Redmond, CEO of the South East CCAC. “There are a number of excellent services available in the area but it can be a challenge to find them when you need help.”

The event will feature displays from local community services and vendors as well as presentations scheduled throughout the day. The keynote speaker at noon will be Shirley Roberts, author of Doris Inc: a Business Approach to Caring for Your Elderly Parents, which she published after she was primary caregiver for her mother for seven years. Shirley will provide a practical look at keeping life in balance while maximizing the quality of life of an elderly loved one.

“With more than seven million Canadians caring for loved one at home, family caregiving is increasingly a social issue with deep connection and dependence on government, business and the local community,” said Redmond. “Caregiving can be very rewarding but it can also cause emotional and financial worry. Knowing what is available is a first step to alleviating some of that worry. We are pleased to work with Caregiver Omnimedia and many of our partners to bring families the information they need to reduce the burden of aging.

“Providing information about community resources is not new for the South East CCAC. We have the website where the public can learn about services in their communities, and our care connectors also help people navigate the sometimes complex health care system. These events are just one more way that the CCAC is connecting people with the care they need to stay safe and healthy in their communities.  Similar events will be held in Kingston and Brockville later this year.”

Registration is free and a complimentary lunch will be provided. Register online at or toll free at 1.800.209.4810 Ext 25
