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!
In light of recent announcements made by the Premier of Ontario, Warden of Peterborough County and Mayor of Peterborough, all declaring a state of emergency and requiring non-essential services and business to close, Community Care remains open as is deemed an essential service under the health care, seniors care and social services classification, as defined on the provincial list today, organizations and providers that deliver home care services. We also qualify under the not-for-profit organizations that provide critical personal support services in-home and provide transportation services necessary for activities of daily living.
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.
Event and Fundraisers – cancelled or postponed
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we want you to know that Community Care is doing everything we can to support the community through this difficult time. We are also taking added precautions to keep our volunteers, clients and employees safe. This is our number one priority and our focus will remain about supporting clients in their homes.
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 continue to communicate to you any changes or updates. For more information call us at (705)742-7067.
