Community Access for People in Continuing Care Initiative

Did you know this program is available from Alberta Human Services – Disability Services?:

Community Access for People in Continuing Care Initiative

Program Purpose

The goal of the Community Access for People in Continuing Care (CAPCC) initiative is to provide supports to Albertans under the age of 65, living in continuing care centres who are socially and culturally isolated.  Community Access Coordinators focus on individual goals to develop supports to help individuals participate in community activities in an effort to reduce social isolation and develop, maintain and enhance the involvement of family and friends.

Community Access Coordination Services

Community Access Coordinators are available to assist residents in continuing care to become more active in their community.  Individual service plans are developed based on a person’s interests and the activities available in their community. Activities could include: outings with family and friends, volunteer activities, church or spiritual activities, movies or continuing education.
