 Here are just a few of the numbers you may need to get help with while taking on responsibilty of Caretaker or deciding if a placement is in best interest for both /all parties  
 
Canadian Alzheimers Society..Toll free..1-800 616-8816....A Fantastic support system for those dealing with Alzheimers and the problems or issues faced does so much good and research on this Disease..Is really good to hook up with for the support,newsletters and some Raising monies for the Alzheimers Research 
 
Can direct you to any Office of ........The Alzheimers Society Canada wide

Ontario Drug Benefit Program...Toll free....1-888-405-0405
 
Ombudsman..Toll Free...1-800-668-0128....
The ombudsman is there for you to get ahold of in case you suspect abuse in NH's or Retirement homes...** also for complaints about Caregivers **..and input on NH 's or Retirement homes
 
Ontario Community Access Centre..these numbers are for local municipalities and can be found under that listing in your phone book ...
They are used to find respite care as is the Alzheimers Society........and they can direct you to the Facilities that have Caregivers that have been trained and are PSW"s or they also have Nurse Aides and Health Care Aides as well as Registered Nurses ......
We have some excellent Providers here in Ontario ( Canada) such as The Victorian Order of Nurses ...Red Cross ..and Para Med 
Can also help with Retirement homes an supplemental monies for the placement /and for Nursing Homes..
 
Personally I keep a list of these numbers by my phone as well as at Dad's house .......
It is good to involve them and most beneficial financially for all as the Gov does pay for 99% of services required for seniors  here.......
I worked closely with all during my time in the Retirement home and still do keep in touch with AD society and do some charity events with them ....
 
I do hope this will help
 
If you see or know of some place you cannot find number or info about let me know and I will try my best
 
be well all and
God Bless
