Home Care in Manitoba

Information below is quoted directly from: Page 73/74

"Each regional health authority operates a Home Care Program which provides home health care services and support to individuals so they remain independent and at home for as long as safely possible. Services provided may include:

  • personal care
  • home support
  • nursing, respite/caregiver relief
  • occupational and physical therapy assessments
  • household maintenance
  • referrals to other agencies
  • referrals to adult day programs
  • service coordination and assessments for long-term care and specialty services

Services can be requested by the individual, the family or by a doctor. Once Home Care receives a request for service, a Home Care case co-ordinator will meet with the individual and any other caregivers at home to discuss care needs. Based on the information gathered, the co-ordinator will develop a care plan to help the individual manage at home. If other services are needed (ex. long-term care or alternative housing options) they can be accessed any time by requesting this information from your Home Care case coordinator. If the individual becomes ill and is admitted to hospital, the hospital will inform the Home Care Program and a new plan will be made for when the person returns home. If the individual cannot return home, the case co-ordinator can help access appropriate housing and care options (ex. supportive housing, companion care, personal care homes, chronic care hospital placement). For a copy of the Home Care Guidebook, go to: For more information, call the Home Care office nearest you."
