The non-profit difference: supporting the community's needs!


This is a local service hub providing a range of
programs and levels of care, with benefits for many
different groups across the community as a whole.

The concept had its beginnings in 2007, when
Blue Water Rest Home was designated by the
Health Minister as the Rural Provincial Pilot Project
for the new wave of Long-Term Care redevelopment
taking place across Ontario.
Our expanding local care hub...
As well as using internal skills and resources we have
expanded our partnerships with other local providers...
• One Care Home & Community Support Services,
• Georgian College,
• Ontario Telemedicine Network,
• London Bridge Childcare Services,
• Wellness for Seniors,
• Huron County Social Services,
• The Southwest Community Care Access Centre (CCAC),
• South Huron Hospital Association, and
• The Grand Bend and Area Community Health Centre.
We continue to work closely with our funding partners...
• The Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care (MOHLTC), and
• The Southwest Local Health Integration Network (LHIN)
...see the "Links" page for more information.
We have taken the opportunity to set the standard
for community care in rural Ontario. We call it the
West Huron Care Centre. Part of our commitment
with the Pilot Project was that we would create
much more than renewed Long-Term Care. So, while
Long-Term Care at Blue Water Rest Home remains our core service, we have developed the framework for a “Continuum of Care” that can serve hundreds more local people in many ways.

Our definition of this Continuum of Care is a
community healthcare support hub that allows people to live as independently as possible by providing the local services, programs, housing, and care they need, when they need them.
