In Home Outreach
We know that there are many factors in your life that can affect your health. When people have support, they live healthier lives. The rural wellington Community Team understands that it is hard to reach out and find the resources you need, when you need them. We work in the community with other Rural Health Teams to connect you to community agencies to help you navigate both health care and social service system, and support you when family and friends can’t help.
The Outreach Team is available to help with those connections. The Outreach Team partners with Home and Community Care and Mental Health Association to support you with the services they provide. The outreach Worker will provide individual assistance to those who are recently discharged from hospital, homeless or poorly housed, lack health insurance coverage, have multiple chronic medical and mental health conditions, are unemployed or have other issues which may impact their ability to manage their health conditions.
Our Outreach Service is available to any patient of the Upper Grand Family Health Team or Centre Wellington Resident.
