(Learn more about Northern Health's Vision, Mission and Values)
At Northern Health, we know that people want to maintain as much control as possible over their lives. That’s why we’re working hard to provide a range of health care options that promote independence, choice and dignity. The ability to make personal choices for health care is important. Most Northerners by nature are resilient, self-reliant and independent. Therefore, providing services that can help them stay that way are important in every community, no matter how small.
Whether you need support to remain at home, need to move to receive care in a residential care facility, or are somewhere in between, Northern Health has a range of services to meet your needs.
Home and Community Care provides a range of health care and support services for eligible residents. These services are designed to complement and supplement, but not replace the efforts of individuals to care for themselves with the assistance of family, friends and community.
Detailed information on Home and Community Care services and programs for seniors and persons with disabilities is available by browsing the available links and topics, using the navigation tabs at the left.
