Message from Michelle...how we can help

We have services in all four communities to provide home care services to eligible individuals, regardless of age, who require health services or assistance with activities of daily living.

Home and community care works with community members and provides assistance to help them stay in their homes for as long as is safely possible.

A professional assessment of your individual needs, existing or potential supports, and community resources will determine your eligibility for home care in the type and amount of services you may receive.

Our Available Programs

In Home Care

  • Nursing Services
  • Personal Care (washing, feeding, toileting, etc)
  • In-home Respite Care (to provide a rest for families)
  • Homemaker Services (to help with housework)
  • Home Support (to help carry water, etc)
  • Equipment and Supplies loans (wheelchairs, etc)

Community Care (second stage programs)

  • Adult Day Programs
  • Congregate Meal Programs
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Bathing programs

Who Is Eligible?

  • Eligibility is assessed by the Home Care staff
  • Need is confirmed prior to service delivery.
  • Applicant is a resident of the First Nation.
  • Applicant is First Nation or married to/in common-law relationship with a member of the First Nation.
  • The home needs to be a safe environment.
  • Applicant has needs greater than family can provide.
  • The program must have the competencies and resources to meet the client needs.

Key Issues

  • Single point access: Every applicant goes through the assessment process.
  • Administratively a day-time program: Office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We ask that community members respect the hours as there is not funding for administrative staff to work after hours.
    Services are limited as funding is not open-ended.
  • Case Plans are developed with each client. The care plan will have goals that encourage self-care and, when possible, mobilize the client toward independence of service.
  • Services are voluntary. Clients must give consent 
  • Services are absolutely confidential.

What The Program Is Not…

  • It is not an emergency service.
  • It does not provide evening or weekend administrative services or nursing assessments.
  • It is not a mandated program. Clients must be voluntary, willing participants.

Client Bill Of Rights

Clients have a right to…

  • Be treated with dignity and respect
  • High quality services
  • Be full participants in service plans
  • Absolute confidentiality
  • Provide feedback and offer suggestions
  • Express concerns and complaints
  • Appeal service decisions
  • Safe, high quality services
  • Be free from abuse and/or exploitation
  • Free choice and self-determination

How To Apply For Service

Call the Home and Community Care Program in your home community between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and an appointment will be made for an assessment.

A Reminder

the Home and Community Care Program is not an Emergency Service!
