Helping you to remain safe and independent in your own home is a priority for Alberta Health Services. Home care support is available to assess and coordinate the kinds of services you’ll need. Anyone can call home care to ask for support – including you.
- A Home Care Registered Nurse* will meet with you to discuss your needs. Together, you’ll create a plan of care just for you, and as your needs change so will your plan. If you prefer, your family can also be involved.
- Your Home Care RN* has access to a team of local health-care professionals ready to assist you – including your family physician, physiotherapists, pharmacists, health care aides and many others.
- With the help of home care, many seniors are able to remain in their own homes for a very long time.
A time may come when living at home is no longer a safe option. If so, your Home Care RN* will help you decide on a living option that meets your care needs and respects your wellness and independence.
* In some parts of the province, other allied health-care professionals (i.e. physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers) also complete assessments.
