The Community and Long-term Care Operational Committee

This Committee helps the Regional Stroke Network to guide the planning and organization of the Champlain stroke system. The Committee focuses on how best to deliver care to stroke survivors in their home environment.

The Regional Stroke Network's strategic plan guides the work of the Committee. To prioritize and make decision, the Committee builds on best practice stroke care recommendations and evidence.

Committee members are: persons who experienced a stroke, their family members/care partners, and representatives of community-based care providers, community organizations, and long-term care providers.

The Committee meets quarterly. Members can attend in person, via the phone, or via the Ontario Telehealth Network.

Examples of projects identified and guided by the Committee:

  • Community-based rehabilitation in Stormont, Glengarry and Dundas Counties and Akwesasne This service helps people who recently suffered a stroke. After a stay in the hospital or in in-patient rehabilitation, rehabilitation can continue for 8 weeks in a clinic in Cornwall or in the person’s home. The goal is to help people return to their regular activities at home and in their community.

Committee members receive regular updates so that they can advise and guide project implementation, evaluation and follow-up planning.

  • Connecting stroke patients to services in the community

Many people who suffered a relatively milder stroke spend time in a hospital then return home without going to rehabilitation. This project aims to ensure that people are connected to community-based care services to continue with their recovery.

Committee members contribute their insights on what types of services are needed and on good ways to link stroke survivors and services.
