Seniors have told us they want to remain safe and independent in their own homes, for as long as possible. In response, Alberta Health Services is expanding services, and is now providing more home care to Albertan seniors than ever before.
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.
A time may come when living at home is no longer a safe option. If so, your home care manager will help you decide on a living option that meets your care needs and respects your wellness and independence.
In August 2013, AHS signed new contracts for home care services in Calgary and Edmonton to ensure that clients continue to receive consistent, high quality home care. This has resulted in a number of new home care providers.
Experienced home care staff continue to provide high quality care, based on individual needs. AHS home care case managers assess client care needs, and assign care plans to best meet those needs. Home care services may be provided by AHS staff, or by contracted providers, or a combination of both. A list of home care providers can be found here:
