The CHCA defines home care as an array of services for people of all ages, provided in the home and community setting, that encompasses health promotion and teaching, curative intervention, end-of-life care, rehabilitation, support and maintenance, social adaptation and integration and support for the family caregiver.
The Canadian Home Care Association, as a national voice, promotes excellence in home care through leadership, awareness and knowledge to shape strategic directions.
Accessible, responsive home care and community supports which enable people to stay in their homes with safety, dignity and quality of life.
On behalf of our national membership of over 200 home care organizations, the Canadian Home Care Association incorporates these guiding principles into all of our activities.
- A national framework for home care that supports accessible, quality services that are publicly administrated and responsive to local community needs.
- Home Care is a critical component of an integrated system through the provision of collaborative and interdisciplinary care.
- Family caregivers and volunteers are vital and respected members of the home care team and should be provided with necessary supports.
