Provides services to eligible individuals who require assistance with activities of daily living in order to
remain in their home. The aim of this program is to prevent, delay or substitute for placement in a long term care facility. Home support services are intended to supplement, not replace, services provided by the individual’s family or support network.
A referral must be made to the Community Health Nurse or Community Support Social Worker if the person is living in the community or to the hospital-based Social Worker if the client is currently in hospital.
