Community and Home Health
Community and home care services provide a range of health care and support services to people who have acute, chronic, palliative or rehabilitative health care needs. Clients may need these services if they are released from the hospital and need short-term care, have an ongoing or chronic health issue requiring additional care or have a health issue that is getting worse and needs support to continue to live at home.
Our philosophy is that home is best, as most people wish to remain in their own home for as long as possible. We are committed to the quality of life by supporting independence, health, and wellness through the delivery of person and family-centered care. Home support is care-at-home to help clients remain independent and enhance their quality of life. These support services are provided by community health workers (CHWs) to clients who require assistance with daily living activities such as bathing, dressing, heating and serving meals and moving around the house. We have many opportunities for health care professionals to work in the community and home health.
