Referrals may come directly from the individual, their family, or a substitute decision maker. Referrals will be accepted on behalf of the person, from a third party, such as a family doctor or service agency, if consent to facilitate the referral has been obtained.
Referrals may be submitted in one of three ways – electronically or by mail or fax.
Upon receipt of your completed referral form and supporting documentation verifying eligibility for services, you will receive a Referral Confirmation letter by email within 2 to 4 weeks. This will be followed by contact from an Intake worker to arrange an initial Intake Appointment. The wait for an appointment varies depending on referral volumes and may take up to 4-6 months.
If you have not received a Referral Confirmation email from us after 4 weeks, please call 519-741-1121, so that we can avoid any unnecessary delays.
To obtain a paper copy of the Referral Form, contact the main office of SDRC at 519-741-1121, or click on the link below to download a pdf copy.
