What are 

Community Support Services?

At Community Support Services (CSS) we believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to live independently in their own home for as long as possible.

 

​Home care and community support services allow people to safely meet their unique needs, be more independent and resilient and live the way they want to live, for longer.

 

These cost-effective services reduce the need for more expensive hospital care, emergency room visits, or long-term care. They benefit individual clients, their caregivers and the health care system as a whole.

 

Community Support Services focus on promoting independent living through:

  • transportation

  • meals and nutrition

  • education and supports

  • safety and reassurance

  • health and wellness

  • support in the home

  • intensive support programs

  • adult day services

Investing in home-based care can save money, improve care and improve quality of life for people who would otherwise be hospitalized or institutionalized.
