TORONTO 1976 Carefirst began as a meals-on-wheels service for vulnerable seniors and has since expanded its range of community supports to include primary care, home care, and transitional care among many other services. Our dedicated team of professionals serves over 16,000 clients each year across the Greater Toronto Area and York Region. Despite our efforts, huge service gaps remain as the aging population grows. It’s time for us to take a stand.
