St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph (SJHCG) offers community support services that are among the best in Canada. As with all of our programs and services, we take a holistic view of a person’s health and well-being and support them in reaching their individual goals. The goal of each program is to help people live their lives to the fullest and maintain their independence. Our programs include:
- Out ‘n About (Guelph and Fergus)
- Acquired Brain Injury Program
- Young Onset Program
- Alzheimer’s Day Program
- Waterloo Wellington Regional Aphasia Program
- Dinner Club Evening Program
Supporting Families and Caregivers
Clients are not the only people who benefit from our programs. Often family members need help as they try to care for their loved one while juggling the demands of raising their own families, maintaining their employment, and taking care of themselves. In addition to the Overnight Stay Program, Community Support Services also supports families by providing vital information they need to help cope with high-risk behaviours and other challenges associated with being a caregiver.
In addition, because our services are very connected to other programs in the community, we can provide families with important links within the community, educational supports, and help with system navigation.
