Discharge Planning

Your health care team will work toward your discharge home from the moment you are admitted to the hospital.  The health care team is multi-disciplined and is comprised of your physician, nursing staff, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, dietitian, diagnostic imaging staff, laboratory staff and discharge planning staff.

At Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare, discharge planning is carried out in partnership with staff from the North Simcoe Muskoka Community Care Access Centre (NSM CCAC)

The members of the Discharge Planning Team are called Transitional Care Coordinators or TCCs.  The TCCs, as members of the NSM CCAC team, connect you with the care you need at home and in your community.  They can help you receive health and support services to stay at home longer, link you with caregiver relief and provide you with information about and assessment for long term care when more care is needed than can be provided at home.

The NSM CCAC is one of 14 CCACs across Ontario and is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.  All services provided by the CCAC to eligible clients are at no cost as long as the client has a valid Ontario Health Card.

The CCAC's mission is to deliver a seamless experience through the health system for people in our diverse communities, providing equitable access, individualized care coordination and quality health care.
