Ontario is improving access to services for adults with developmental disabilities and their families by finding better ways to connect them to supports available in their local community.
Today, Dr. Helena Jaczek, Minister of Community and Social Services and Ted McMeekin, MPP, Ancaster--Dundas--Flamborough--Westdale, were at Contact Hamilton, to announce supports and resources for adults with developmental disabilities, including:
Through these increased supports, people with developmental disabilities and their families will be better able to find services in their communities -- for example housing solutions -- so that they can live as independently as possible. These investments will also help system partners work better together to coordinate care for their clients.
Ontario will continue to work with people with developmental disabilities, their families and caregivers, agencies and other community partners to increase connections, and help them best determine their own future.
Supporting adults with developmental disabilities is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.
