Se trata de un recurso web sin ánimo de lucro, que proporciona a cuidadores y pacientes (y también en mejor medida a los profesionales), información sobre el abordaje de problemas prevalentes encontrados en el cuidado de pacientes crónicos incapacitados, o episódicamente incapacitados en el área de Ontario (Canadá) 

Generalmente se trata de enlaces a otras páginas donde dichos recursos están disponibles, o de información anexa en forma de archivos. 

Los temas que aborda van más allá de los cuidados sanitarios y se extienden a temas laborales, vivienda, dispositivos médicos de ayuda a la discapacidad, etc.
