Anyone living in Alberta with a valid provincial health care card (or registration in progress) can receive Home Care services as long as their health care needs can be safely met in the home. Consistent access criteria have been developed provincially for Supportive Living and Long Term Care and serve as general guidelines. Each client will be individually assessed.
Healthcare providers should consult the Alberta Referral Directory for service referral information.
Anyone can make a referral to Continuing Care provided the client is in agreement.
There are no fees for Professional or Personal Care Services in Home Care. Accommodation Rates are standardized in Supportive Living and Long Term Care Centres that are funded by Alberta Health Services.
