Empowering East Toronto’s Health:

Our evolving collaboration with Michael Garron Hospital (MGH), East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) & the Ontario Health Team (OHT).



At Home Instead Senior Care of East Toronto, we’re proud to be at the forefront of enhancing community health in the East End of the city. Our ongoing collaboration with Michael Garron Hospital (MGH) and the East Toronto Health Partners (ETHP) & Ontario Health Team (OHT) will allow us to provide more comprehensive in-home care and support to numerous individuals and families, particularly post-hospitalization, or post-surgical discharge.


Our Role in Community Health:

The role of our office continues to evolve as we build and deepen relationships with local Hospitals, and OHTs. Whether it be helping individuals maintain their independence, or returning home post surgery or emergency admission, our services are foundational to assisting those who wish to age in place.
