Home Care

Provides medical support for people so they can live in their own homes

Home Care helps people who live at home and need support such as:

  • Care after surgery
  • Long-term care
  • Palliative care
  • Respite services

A case manager, who is usually a nurse, will meet with the clients and help decide what services will best support them.
