Please do not enter these facilities if you have cold or flu-like symptoms, such as runny nose, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath/trouble breathing, diarrhea or vomiting. Do not enter these facilities if you feel unwell, no matter how mild the symptoms.

Nursing Support Services organizes care for children and youth whose care needs require the scope of practice of a registered nurse for some aspects of their care due to the child/youth's medically complex and fragile health needs.
We assess children up to age 19 to determine their eligibility for services.
We provide in-home respite care for children who may:
- have a tracheostomy,
- require supported ventilation (ventilator, BiPAP, CPAP),
- have a life-limiting/palliative diagnosis,
- require peritoneal dialysis, or
- have other conditions that require the support of a registered nurse.
We develop and implement Individualized Health Care Plans in collaboration with the child and their family.
