The following testimonial comes from a family of a LEAP client:
"I believe that the care my dad received averted a difficult and possibly dangerous situation. The worker provided exactly the care that was needed. I think that without this professional care, he (or my mom), could easily have ended up back in the emergency department of the hospital."

(Long Term Emergency Avoidance Program)
Regular scheduled visits can be arranged to suit client needs. LEAP is available at anytime, whether it is during the day, evening or weekend. This program is easily accessible and immediately responsive to clients. There is a minimum of one hour service per visit.
LEAP is designed to assist adults with needs related to aging, physical and/or mental health to remain at home, postponing long-term care placement and reducing avoidable hospital emergency department use. This is achieved by offering client- centered assistance with routine living activities, provided by qualified Personal Support Workers. These routine tasks may include bathing, dressing, light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, local drives and shopping.
