Our goal is to help individuals stay in their own homes as long as they so choose by connecting clients with the care and services they need.

The Going Home Program is a community-based service designed to help seniors and physically disabled adults return home safely following a hospital stay. It provides a free support service for clients during their return home. Clients must be referred by the CCAC prior to discharge from hospital.
Although the EORC is a non-profit organization, the funding we receive does not necessarily cover all the costs associated with offering a service. To remain a sustainable nonprofit organization and assure that we will be able to continue to offer support to our community some services require a direct service fee. We strive to ensure that our services are accessible to everyone regardless of economic status. Subsidies may be available to low income individuals pending a financial assessment. Our fee based services* include:
We offer transportation to essential services and rural transportation.
