  • Fellow Canadians, have a question for ya.

    Chestshire homes, CCAC, VON etc etc will they provide someone with caregiving (basic morning and night bull) for C5 complete even though they had a auto insurance settlement?
    Just trying to settle a debate here?

    A friend had her auto accident in 1988 ... she receives nursing care from CCAC in the morning (every morning anywhere from 8-12. At night she is put to bed by PSW's via ALSO at 10:00pm (can't remember what that stands for). She is C5-6. For all of these years.

    Cheshire Homes - not sure. Long waiting list though. I was thinking of putting my name in .. for when I'm 60. I'm 42 now.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

      CCAC in Toronto provides me with 14 hours per week, no fee. I divide it into 1 hour, 2x / day, a.m., p.m.
      I don't have insurance, but have sufficient income to supplement this government coverage with private help.
      I would probably qualify for increased time for free, but haven't looked into it yet.
      I've SCI friends that have a mix of assistance, depending on income, insurance, needs.
