Home Care in Canada
In Canada, home care is a term that describes a wide range of health and social services delivered to people of all ages in their home and in the community. The goal of home care is to provide clients and families with the support they need at home in a comfortable environment and lessening the strain on our accute care system.
Home care services can be administered wherever they are needed. Care can be provided in the home, at a hospice, or in a retirement home to name a few.
Home care services are convenient, flexible, and customized to your schedule and needs. Depending on the need and the service, support may be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Home care services may be covered by provincial home care funding (for example, OHIP in Ontario) and services can also be purchased by an individual, and in some cases may be covered by insurance. To learn more about home care in your area, speak with a health care professional or contact your local provincial home care authority inquire about what services are available and the process for receiving them.
