Self and Family Managed Care
If receiving care from health care professionals through the Home Care program is not the best choice for you, the Northern Health Region Home Care program can help you with accessing care managed by yourself or your family. This option allows an individual or family member to accept full responsibility for their/families personal care as the manager. As the self or family manager they are responsible for coordinating, managing, and directing non-professional services needed for themselves or family member to continue living at home. To be eligible for this service you must be eligible for home care and require more assistance than is available from existing supports and community resources. A Home Care Case Coordinator can help with determining if this option is right for you.
