Home and Community Care Services :

Stoney Health Services (SHS) Home and Community Care Services are federally funded healthcare and personal support services for clients of all ages. These services can be curative, rehabilitative and/or palliative. Their focus is on creating an environment where Nation members are able to live at home independently and safely for as long possible. This typically includes Morley Community individuals who:

  • >>Have an acute stage of a chronic disease or chronic conditions/disabilities that have deteriorated to the point where more care is required either in the home or during a transition to higher levels or care
  • >>Are recovering from injury and require more frequent visits because of high risk of further deterioration in their health status and/or inability of the family to provide care required
  • >>Require ongoing routine personal care
  • >>Are being discharged from acute care or long-term care with assessed Home Care needs
  • >>Require regularly scheduled respite care to provide temporary relief to caregivers, to name a few

While Home and Community Care services are most commonly delivered in community members’ places of residence, flexibility exists to deliver services in a variety of other settings for more mobile clients. Home and Community Care Services supplement care and supports provided by families and community services, but are not meant to replace it.

Home and Community Care Services are provided by registered nurses, licensed practical nurse, certified health care aides and other healthcare professionals as needed (i.e. occupational therapists).
