Home Care in Canada
Home care is 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 (CHCA) advances excellence in home care through leadership, awareness, advocacy and knowledge.
Accessible, responsive home care and community supports which enable people to safely stay in their homes with dignity, independence and quality of life.
As a national association, the CHCA is a "unifying force" which amplifies our members' individual voices to influence national policy directions on key professional and political issues. The Association’s activities are guided by our four strategic directives:
- Leadership: Initiate conversations that catalyze change
- Advocacy: Inform and influence policy and practice
- Awareness: Increase the understanding of the role and value of home care
- Knowledge: Facilitate continuous learning through partnerships and networking
