When you are no longer able to live at home with assistance, your local Home and Community Care office is available to assist you with options. We believe the best quality of life is achieved by remaining in one’s own home environment for as long as possible. To this end, the Home and Community Care care manager will complete an assessment and help you explore options that will allow you to manage in your home.

Ultimately, access to long-term care services is based on a person’s assessed need and risk. Long-term care is for adults with complex health care needs requiring 24-hour professional care due to physical disability, or mental or behavioural conditions, including brain injuries or dementia.
