Seniors' Care Assistance

Helping you and your family understand  senior care choices to ensure you get the right care every time.

It is the only program in Canada that connects you, your immediate family and parents to a registered nurse. We are here to help you understand your senior care choices and ensure you get the right care every time.

CAREpath's Seniors’ Care Assistance Program also provides direct access to a Senior Living Advisor who will help you, your family and parents navigate the public and private senior living options.

CONNECT

Many provinces throughout Canada fund benefits such as seniors vision care, assistive devices programs, telehealth and dental options. Our nurses will assess all the funding options and help you and your families understand and access alternative ways to pay.

For example, we will help you:

  • Understand and access the right care
  • Calculate the total cost
  • Break down what is payable out of pocket and what can be covered by the funding
  • Find additional funding sources
  • Complete all the necessary forms for services, funding or rebates
