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 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.
