Home and Community-Based Services and Supports
Children with Complex Care Needs

Children and youth with complex care needs are among the most vulnerable populations served by our health and social care systems.This report describes the findings of a pan-Canadian scan of the current programs available through provincial and territorial governments for children with complex care needs. Specifically, the project scope included:

  • Availability of programs and services, accessibility, eligibility, limitations or restrictions, funding eligibility and caregiver supports.
  • Issues, challenges and opportunities for home-based services for children with complex care needs.
  • Perspective and advice of parents who provide necessary care and support.
  • Services available through provincial and territorial funding to Aboriginal children (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) with complex needs who live on- and off-reserve.

What are the challenges and innovations in publicly-funded home care and community-based services for children with complex care needs? To answer this question, we surveyed health and social ministries across Canada, researched publicly available material, interviewed subject matter experts and engaged the parents in conversations.   This is what we found.

  • Defining children with complex care needs - Lack of common definition impacts eligibility, measurement and planning
  • Fragmented services - Limited coordination of care and services across multiple government ministries and programs
  • Rural and remote access - Limited expertise, support and resources as care moves away from urban paediatric hospital
  • Parent challenges - Parents and carers need respite, information, training and financial support
