Where can I find health services for seniors?

In general, you can use the same health programs and services as other adults. Some programs and services may be especially useful:

  • Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program
  • Community Care Access Centres (CCACs)
  • Sports and recreation activities

Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program

The Ontario Drug Benefit (ODB) Program helps pay for prescription medicine for people who are 65 years old or older.

Community Care Access Centres

These centres coordinate health care services in the community. For example, a CCAC can:

  • Arrange for health and personal support services to come to your home.
  • Manage admissions to long-term care facilities.
  • Give information and referrals about other community agencies and services.

Find more information, go to What is community-based health care?

Activities to Stay Healthy

Many community agencies have sports and recreation activities for seniors. To find programs in your area, go to Services Near Me.

You can also contact a Community Information Centre.
