Home and Community Care

We provide a range of health care services to support you at home and in your community.

Home is Best

We believe that home, with appropriate supports, is the best place to continue your recovery from illness and injury, manage chronic conditions and live out final days. Evidence shows that returning home from hospital as soon as possible with the supports you need gives you the best chance to regain your strength and independence, even if you are not yet totally able to care 100 per cent for yourself.

‘Home’ may be any living space, whether house, apartment, condo or shared accommodation.

Sometimes a large space such as a house becomes unmanageable as frailty increases. We recommend downsizing before considering more drastic forms of housing such as residential care. It may also be a good idea to retrofit the living space with assistance devices to enhance safety. A personal alarm service such as Lifeline would also be beneficial.

Services

We offer both short-and long-term health care services at home. Short-term support helps you recover from a hospital procedure or condition. Long-term programs provide ongoing care that will give you the independence you need to remain at home comfortably.

We will also connect you to palliative care services at home, and assess you for subsidized residential care, assisted living, and respite services for caregivers.
