Seniors can also call the North East LHIN’s patient information line, 310-2222 – or speak with someone at 1-888-910-1999 TTY: 1-800-387-5559 to get information over the phone in more than 150 languages.

“Each of these resources are helping seniors and others to learn more about available health care programs and services,’ said Kate Fyfe, Interim CEO, North East LHIN. “These resources also show people where they can go for social activities and how they can get around in their community. It helps them to stay connected and engaged, which ensures they enjoy a high quality of life.”

These resources are intended to better help seniors in the Northeast stay independent, healthy, and active by helping to increase awareness of what’s available to them in their communities.
