I am the primary caregiver for my mother who is diagnosed with schizophrenia. I will be going away for one-week. She is not able to stay on her own because of her illness - can CCI help?
Absolutely, CCI has a variety of services that can be put in place to look after your mother and reassure you during your absence. These include having members of our highly trained personal support worker team visit with your mother in her home providing all the support she will need, including personal care, meal preparation and companionship. Alternatively, you may prefer to arrange to have your mother spend time at our warm and inviting residence located at 1669 Weston Road, Toronto, Ontario (Weston Road and Lawrence Avenue West) for respite care. Here we also offer planned or emergency short-term relief to families and caregivers. We are more that happy to accommodate your mother.

You, and (if you wish), your family or friends, can be active partners in your care.
You can expect to participate in an assessment to help determine your needs and goals to direct a plan of care. We are concerned with the whole person and how illness has impacted your daily life.
