A Message to Our Clients and the Hamilton Community:
May 19, 2020
The health and safety of our clients and staff are our top priority as we continue to closely monitor the impacts of COVID-19. Protecting your health and safety will continue to remain our focus as we begin to reopen and expand in-person services over time.
On May 14th, the Ontario government announced the initial phase (Stage 1) of restarting community healthcare services amongst other services across the province.
While the Ontario government included the gradual reopening of various services including in-person mental health and addiction services, we want to be clear with our community that this reopening will happen progressively over the next few weeks and months. It will not happen all at once on Tuesday, May 19th, 2020.
We are working hard to reopen our doors to our clients and community, but we will only do this once it is safe to do so. We are actively working to ensure we can meet the criteria established by the Ontario government to keep you and our staff safe, including our ability to:
In the interim, we will continue to provide virtual phone call or ZOOM appointments with the case management and psychiatric staff as we have been over the past two months. Our in-person clinics for injectable medication administration by our nurse- case managers remain open as they have throughout the pandemic. We are now offering on-line group leisure and recreational activities led by our Occupational Therapist for all our clients by connecting with the OT, your Case Manager or visiting our website at:
If you are a registered client of HMHO, you can continue to connect with us or book your next appointment by contacting us by phone (905 522-9767) and leaving a message for your case manager. If you are not a registered client you may phone for an assessment at (905) 528-0683 and speak to our Admissions Coordinator at Intensive Case Management Access Coordination (IntAc), our referral center.
We will do our best to keep you informed of our plans to restart in-person services. Please continue to visit our website for up-to-date information about services.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time. We look forward to seeing you in-person again soon and please keep safe by washing your hands and social distancing. We will get through this together!
