How to Access Programs
Ask your Social Worker or Case Coordinator from our various partner agencies, to arrange an appointment for you to see the Rotary Home. You can also phone any of the management team directly to discuss our programs and arrange an initial meeting if you feel there is a match with our services. (613-236-3200)
At the first meeting you will be given a tour of the program area and will meet the staff. Parents are asked to complete an admission form and return it to the Rotary Home. Information that you give concerning your child or young adult’s care will be kept confidential. It will be used to make a care plan for the Counsellors to follow when your child/young adult comes to visit. You are also asked to send in a doctor’s certificate stating that he or she is free of communicable diseases such as tuberculosis and hepatitis B.
At this time parents often like to book a half-day to “try it out”. This gives you and your family member a chance to get to know us. This is followed by reserving a weekend or a week……a real break! Try not to worry; your child or young adult is going to receive excellent care and have fun with the Counsellors and other visitors staying at the home.
Joint Advisory Group (JAG)
The Ottawa Rotary Home, Roger’s House and the Ottawa Children’s Treatment (OCTC) created a Joint Advisory Group (JAG) as part of collaborative efforts between our organizations. The focus of this group is to provide suggestions for ways that our three organizations can increase collaboration in the areas of planning, communication, and networking opportunities. The JAG meets 4-5 times per year and is made up of 6-12 family representatives and staff members representing each of the three organizations. For more information on the group’s activities or if you are interested in joining please contact Maria Contreras at 613-236-3200 ext. 22 or via email at MariaC@rotaryhome.on.ca.
