Help is Available for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities During COVID-19

Help is Available for Seniors and Adults with Disabilities During COVID-19

In response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 landscape, Champlain Community Support Network has put together a dedicated COVID-19 Response Site where vulnerable and isolated seniors and adults with disabilities can request community support services that are currently available in our region. 

The site is available in both English and French and focuses on these key services:

  • Pharmacy delivery and help with food
  • Transportation to medical appointments
  • Telephone safety checks
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Dementia support

Services can be requested by residents as well as service providers.  Individuals will complete a simple online request form indicating the needed services and their location. Requests for service will be received by a central intake for the full region, and then routed to the appropriate local CSS agency based on the location of the client.

We believe this will support community members and our health and community partners to quickly identify and refer to the services they require during COVID-19 for vulnerable seniors and adults living with a physical disability. 

The site also allows for volunteers to sign up for specific roles during this heightened time. Their application will be routed to their local community agency after a high level screening, and they will be efficiently trained and onboarded to help our clients. 

At this time, we are looking for help to spread the word about the COVID-19 Support Services website to support seniors and adults with disabilities to remain safe in their homes. We ask that you share the link on your social media platforms and email newsletters to reach those who need the services most.

Support is also offered by the Ontario Community Support Association (OSCA) at  https://www.ontariocommunitysupport.ca/
