Home Care

Home care provides health care and support services for people living within the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region. Maximizing client wellness and their ability to care for themselves is our focus. Our services supplement, but do not replace clients' efforts to care for themselves with the assistance of their family, friends and the community.

Objectives

To help people maintain independence and wellbeing at home by:

  • Determining needs and abilities, developing and coordinating plans of care
  • teaching self-care and coping skills
  • improving, maintaining or delaying loss of functional abilities
  • promoting, and supporting family and community responsibility for care
  • supporting palliative, supportive and acute care provided by family, friends and neighbors

To facilitate appropriate use of health and social services by:

  • Preventing or delaying the need for admission to long-term care facilities, and assisting on discharge
  • supporting people waiting for long-term care admission
  • preventing the need for hospital admission, making earlier discharge from hospital possible, and reducing the frequency or re-admission
  • helping individuals and families access needed services
  • promoting volunteer participation
  • educating the public about home care
  • participating in local service planning and coordination

Home and Community Care also acts as a bridge between home and other care settings. These settings may include hospital, long term care, personal care homes, a doctor's office, and other primary care settings.
