The Saskatchewan Health Authority's special care homes provide a host of programs delivered to more than 590 residents. Of the 12 facilities, 11 are wholly owned and operated by the SHA in the Prince Albert area, and one has a contracted relationship with the SHA. All facilities focus on providing quality of care while ensuring resident’s quality of life is met to the greatest degree possible.
What is provided? A special care home offers a range of personal and health services to people who are elderly, disabled or chronically ill and who need 24-hour care. Also provided are a number of health care supports like day programs, respite and rehabilitation services to people who still live in their own homes. Care and services are provided based on individual resident need using an interdisciplinary team approach.

Individuals who are assessed and do not meet the qualifications for admission to a Special Care Home, but who may require assistance could find more information about support from Home Care or a Personal Care Home. There are subsidies available for individuals in Personal Care Homes.
