TORONTO, Sept. 26, 2014 /CNW/ – On September 26, Red Cross Care Partners (RCCP), a personal support, nursing and rehabilitative therapy company offering services to clients throughout Ontario, transitioned to 100 percent ownership by CarePartners and began operating under that name.

RCCP was established in 2012 when a portion of Red Cross personal support and homemaking services in Ontariomerged with CarePartners, a nursing and therapy company in order to provide a full basket of services to clients. After much consideration by both organizations, the decision has been made to move out of the current ownership model. Red Cross and CarePartners agreed that this transition is best for the future growth of the organization and its ability to meet the needs of a growing number of Ontarians choosing to age and recover from surgery or illness in their own homes.
