Home care

Home Care is a program to assist the elderly and/or people who are losing their autonomy and wish to live at home for as long as possible.

Since citizen participation is at the heart of the Clinic’s mission, Home Care is premised on respect for users’ choices, their culture, values and integrity, in addition to their physical and moral capacity. Thus Home Care teams up with you to preserve and improve your quality of life in secure circumstances.

For whom?

  • For all citizens in the neighbourhood who have temporary or permanent impairments and who must receive some or all of their care at home (disability, convalescence, palliative care, loss of autonomy, psychosocial support, etc.);
  • For family caregivers.

What services are offered at home?

Depending on the assessment done by your caseworker, you may receive the following services:

  • Medical services (follow-up, etc.);
  • Nursing care (taking blood samples, etc.);
  • Social work services (e.g., budget, family problems);
  • Personal care (help with bathing, etc.);
  • Access to equipment (walker, bath chair, etc.);
  • Assessment for adapting the home;
  • Respite for family caregivers.
