WELCOME TO COMMUNITY CARE PETERBOROUGH
Powered by volunteers and staff, Community Care Peterborough supports the health and well-being of individuals, caregivers, and communities. As a trusted health care partner, our high-quality programs allow people across our rural and urban regions to maintain their independence and dignity.
This organization was founded on the belief that we are all responsible for wellness and social inclusion in our Community!
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve within the City and County of Peterborough we are doing everything we can to support our communities through this difficult time. Although our offices are closed to the public we are still open and delivering services in adapted ways. We want to thank our volunteers and donors for all your efforts and support, together we are staying focused on helping our seniors and adults with disabilities remain in their homes during this uncertain time.
We are in daily conversations with Peterborough Public Health and we are committed to our part in limiting the spread of COVID-19. We have adapted our services, maintaining minimum staff in our offices with the majority of staff working remotely. We continue to practice social distancing and have lessened traffic into our offices for the safety of the most vulnerable. We continue to monitor all in-coming phone calls and we are able to respond to service requests.
Our Meals on Wheels and grocery delivery volunteers have been practicing all pre-cautions, washing hands and social distancing as they are picking up their delivery bags and during their deliveries.
We are happy to report that our Brokered Home Help and Home Maintenance programs are resuming with all the proper social distancing protocols between brokered helpers and clients.
Event and Fundraisers – cancelled or postponed
As we cancel or adapt programs, our clients who have consented to be added to our Friendly Visiting telephone call list will be contacted regularly so that we can continue to monitor their safety and assist them as needed. Our staff are continuing to work with volunteers to identify clients who are at the most high risk and developing case by case plans to ensure their safety.
We are committed to continuing to communicate to you any changes or updates. For more information call us at (705)742-7067.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, the Municipality of Trent Lakes has funded a new food voucher program that will be operated by our program office in Buckhorn to support families in the Municipality of Trent Lakes who need assistance to purchase with groceries.
For more information about accessing this program call Jody in our Buckhorn office
(705) 657-2171 or email her through this link.
The Municipality started this program with a one-time, $10,000 donation but is encouraging others to donate to this fund using the link below because we know that as time goes on, the need will grow.
During this pandemic staff and volunteers have stepped up to help our clients get through this healthy and safe. Some of our essential services don't allow for complete physical distancing. For example, we have volunteers who are still driving clients to essential appointments such as dialysis.
For the safety of both the client and volunteer, we would like to provide masks, but we are going to need help. If you are a sewer, or if you know someone who sews, Community Care would greatly appreciate donations of any masks you could make!
