Congregate Dining Program

Food on plates

The Congregate Dining Program is a subsidized sit-down meal and social provided for seniors. The program runs one day per week every two weeks at our Cedar Grove dining room.

Volunteers are needed to assist in setting up the dining room, accepting payments from participants, assisting in serving the plated meals (all cooking is done by a cook), and finally assisting with clean up. The whole process takes approximately 4-5 hours one day a week every two weeks.

This program depends on the assistance of volunteers in order to be delivered in our community. If you can volunteer, please contact Chapleau Health Services, at 705-864-3061 or and complete our volunteer orientation.

Improving Cancer Services

A recent Canadian Cancer Society study predicts that during the 25-year period between 2005 and 2039 the number of cancer patient is expected to double for patients 65 years of age and above. By knowing this information now it allows us to plan for tomorrow. The hospitals goal is to partner with Cancer Care Ontario to provide Oncology Services to patients in our community needing chemotherapy and to provide palliative care services to those needing it at the end or their life.

Drop Off / Pick Up Zones at Services de santé de Chapleau Health Services Entrances

SSCHS is committed to ensuring our services are safe and accessible to everyone requiring our assistance. SSCHS provides two areas where patients can be dropped off or picked up. These zones are located at the main entrance of the hospital for patients/ visitors and the side entrance for emergencies.

For the safety of those picking up or dropping off patients/visitors, parking in the front of the main hospital entrance and the side emergency entrance is strictly prohibited. Patients/ visitors may be dropped off or picked up but then the driver must park in the visitor parking lot. The drop off/ pick up zones must be kept clear for Ambulance, Fire, and the Handi-Transit bus so as to ensure the safe flow of traffic.

If a hospital staff requests for you to move your vehicle to the correct parking area, please comply. Vehicles may be towed from the Hospital at any time if they interfere with the safety of our patients and the safe operation of traffic at SSCHS.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Chapleau Health Services is now Smoke-Free!

As a health care organization, our primary focus is the health of our community and it's for this reason that smoking is no longer permitted anywhere on SSCHS property. This includes Chapleau General Hospital, Chapleau Medical Center, Bignucolo Residence Courtyard, and areas previously designated as smoking areas. The smoking ban also includes parking lots and personal vehicles parked on SSCHS property. All patients, visitors and staff members are required to leave the hospital property entirely, if they wish to smoke.

No smoking logo

Violators of the policy may be asked to leave the property and also may be given trespassing orders if they do not comply with the policy. All nurses at the Family Health Team are trained to offer the "STOP" smoking cessation program to rostered patient.
