Health care support available online for people self-isolating due to COVID-19

CKTB - NEWS - Doctor online help

People isolating at home due to COVID-19 are encouraged to reach out for medical help through a new web portal.

The COVID Care @ Home program is a partnership between St. Joseph's Home Care, Niagara Health, and other health care providers in the Hamilton, Niagara, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas.

The model uses both in-person and virtual care to offer support as patients recover.

COVID Care @ Home has been around since early November and more than 60 Niagara residents have already used the service.

It is available 24/7 through the web portal or by phone during business hours (905-522-2324 or 1-877-611-0669).

Although patients are encouraged to speak with their primary care doctor first, self-referrals are accepted.
