The Toronto Central Home at Last Program (“HAL”) helps seniors leaving hospitals to arrive home safely and comfortably.
Eligible seniors leaving hospital emergency departments or inpatient units are: 55 years or older, without support from friends or family upon discharge, and able to direct their own care.
HAL is a partnership between hospitals, community support service agencies, and the Toronto Central CCAC. HAL is funded by the Toronto Central LHIN through Ontario’s Aging at Home Strategy.
The Enhanced Home at Last (EHAL) program is a pilot project aimed to reduce readmissions to acute care hospitals.
EHAL is designed to assist patients who are at high risk of readmission and have been hospitalized for Congestive Heart Failure (CHF), Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Community-Acquired Pneumonia (CAP) and Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions who are ready to be transitioned home from hospital.
This is a partnership with the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (Toronto Central LHIN), West Neighbourhood House and other Community Support Services Agencies. The program began on November 15, 2017.
Community Support Service Agencies participating in HAL:
West Neighbourhood House (Lead Agency), Mid Toronto Community Services, Neighbourhood Link Support Services, SPRINT, St. Clair West Services for Seniors, Storefront Humber, West Toronto Services for Seniors, WoodGreen Community Services and Les Centres d’Accueil Heritage.
