Independence at home is a free service for seniors to help keep them staying healthy, safe and strong while living at home. It is intended for adults 60 years and up, who are at risk of falling or have experienced a fall.
This service helps connect these adults with a range of local outreach programs that are available in the area. These programs are available on a rotating basis at pre-determined sites.
To get started
To help you find the services that meet your needs, you first need to make an appointment for an assessment meeting to talk with a physiotherapist or registered nurse at the clinic. They will meet with you for a one hour in-depth assessment meeting. After this assessment meeting you will be referred to the appropriate services.
Transportation to your assessment meeting can be arranged if required and will be subsidized for seniors who are unable to pay.
To arrange an assessment appointment at the Delhi Clinic, please call 905-777-3837 ext. 12424.
What will happen during the assessment meeting
During the one-hour visit a physiotherapist or registered nurse will:
- Check your blood pressure
- Do some simple activities to measure your strength and balance
- Review any concerns you might have regarding your memory, medications or lifestyle
- Answer any questions you might have about your unique situation, health and priorities
- Help link you to any services you need to live at home
All information shared is confidential.
What will you need to bring to the meeting
You will need to bring to the clinic your Ontario Health Card, all prescriptions, vitamins and herbal remedies you are currently taking.
