Community Care Durham
We assist our clients with services that support their independence, health and quality of life. In doing so, we help them remain in their own homes – where they want to be.
The Government of Ontario is beginning to relax its public health measures as hospitalizations from COVID-19 are dropping. CCD has adjusted some of its programs accordingly. We care about our community and are committed to providing support for the most vulnerable. CCD will continue working with Public Health and other partners to protect the ongoing safety of our staff, volunteers, and clients. Click the button below for an update of our programs statuses.

Marian S. CCD Volunteer
Volunteering in my community was always on my to-do list and when I came across an advertisement 6 years ago, I signed up to help out in the Adult Day Program. Although I can often be found in the kitchen, I also have time to dance, sing and help out with games and activities. Volunteering has allowed me to meet new people who love to smile and socialize over a cup of tea.
Zarlaqsh S. CCD Staff
Working for CCD has provided me with so many opportunities to learn and excel in my professional career. The staff I get to work alongside, and the clients I have helped to serve in our community has been a very rewarding experience for me since my very first day. Over the years I’ve seen CCD continuously grow and expand to serve more and more individuals. We have remained resilient with the times and it feels great to be a part of an organization that looks collectively to its staff to help it evolve and strive higher.
Kathy D CCD Client
I so look forward to the Community Food Box. I am 93 years old and I live on my own and have not been off my property for groceries since February. The Community Food Box is my main means of getting the essentials I need. My children live a couple hours away so it also gives them peace of mind that I have groceries. I get a lot of the staples I need and love such as yogurt, milk and juice and nothing ever goes to waste.
