If you feel you need financial help to be able to get home support services you can qualify and apply through the Disability Support Program Social Supports NB | Government of New Brunswick or the Long Term Care Program. You can also apply for home support services directly.
Help is not based on a medical diagnosis. It is determined on your ability to complete daily activities.
Some examples of when you may benefit from home support services are:
- You are recovering from an injury, illness or surgery. Home support workers can work with you while you regain the ability to complete daily activities on your own,
- Your family member or caregiver works during the day, but you need help with bathing getting dressed, or getting your meals.
- You have dementia and you need supervision or guidance to complete tasks, or
- You are at risk of falls and need someone to help you with light housekeeping and getting a bath
